Over the past year and a half, the COVID-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on the exit plans of business owners across the UK. For some, a long-planned exit may have had to be put on hold until the economy stabilised. With restrictions now almost entirely lifted, those owners may now be looking to restart the process.
For others, exiting their business may have been the last thing on their minds, until the financial or personal impact of the pandemic caused them to reconsider. Conversely, some owners may have completely unrelated reasons to be looking to the exit door, such as widely anticipated changes to Capital Gains Tax.
However, there are numerous obstacles that business owners face should they look to sell their business in the current climate. These have contributed to a growing trend for management buyouts (MBOs) during the pandemic, as owners seek to make a secure, quick exit from their business, while achieving a reasonable valuation.
