Key to the Sale: Confidential Information Memorandum

Entrepreneurs and business owners spend years building their business — and often years before that dreaming of and planning for it. Every owner knows the journey it took, from the highs of launching the business or securing the first customer to the lows of meeting an early payroll liability or facing the uncertainties of the recent pandemic.

State & Local Tax Services

In the current economic environment, monitoring and managing state and local tax obligations can be a real challenge. Yet for organizations working to protect their revenue and future, it is critical to stay on top of state and local filing requirements.

Federal Tax Services

Across every industry, businesses face complex market trends, economic and governance pressures, and competitive demands. All of those factors have an impact on your liquidity and business growth.

Tax

Tax rules get more complex every year. Identifying and seizing economic opportunities gets more difficult. Every decision you make impacts your tax situation. HORNE knows the vital impact that proactive tax planning has on your ability to sustain or scale your business, and on your peace of mind.

Should I Sell My Business Now?

If you simply are not emotionally ready to sell, if there is still fire in your belly — enough fire to fuel your continued investment in the company — or if you ultimately want to leave the business to family members or employees, then you may not be in a position to sell your business — yet.

Which Comes First? Estate Planning Or Exit Planning?

A successful business Exit Plan achieves three important owner goals:
Financial Security. (The business sale or transfer provides the amount of income the owner, and owner’s family, needs after the owner’s exit.)
The Right Person. The owner chooses his or her successor (children, key employees, co-owners or a third party).
Income Tax Minimization maximizes the amount of cash in the departing owner’s pocket.
