There are many reasons why equity release may be appropriate for you as a business owner but one of the primary reasons is its flexibility. Releasing value in a tax efficient manner from a successful business without going through a sale process is more straightforward than you think. An equity release transaction may be desirable in circumstances such as:
The retirement and exit of an existing shareholder
Sharing of risk – for example, in a family owned business, where a family member wishes to redeploy capital into other assets
Introduction of new management or incentivisation of existing management through share ownership
The funds for equity release can come from a number of sources and Smith Cooper has access to a substantial network of funders in order to secure the best solution for you.
