The road negotiated by small to medium sized business owners can be complex, with obligations to customers, suppliers, employees, the tax office…sometimes you wonder for who you are in business!

The complexity of business doesn’t end with the decision to sell up and/or retire.  If you qualify, there are a myriad of taxation concessions that can make a real difference to the end amount received for the sale of your business. 

The following graphic sets out some of the basic conditions and exemptions available to small business owners upon the sale of their business or an asset of their business.  It is a complex tax area and you should always seek specific taxation advice from an experienced professional prior to implementing any strategies in this area.
