Exit strategies for vet business owners
Friday 12/11/2021 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM

More Info

Many veterinarians will only sell a practice once in their life. When it’s time to sell their practice, they often make mistakes, due to a lack of knowledge or understanding of the impact of the many decisions that need to be made. Many would-be sellers delay putting their practice on the market as they don’t know what to do next, and are afraid of a loss of identity that selling might bring.

This workshop will cover:

  • Exit planning - how to get your practice ready to sell
  • Understanding what you are selling
  • The selling process - what to expect
  • Various exit strategies, including walk-in walk-out, the incremental sale, sell-and-stay-on and grandfather
  • Succession Planning – does your current structure provide for succession? What you need to do now to prepare for a new owner to take over the reigns (and how will you manage the transition?)
  • Valuing Veterinary Practices – what is the potential value in your veterinary practice and methods for quantifying it?
  • Legal agreements
  • Effective strategies for the successful transfer of patients from seller to buyer
  • The human element – which advisors will you need, who might be a potential buyer/successor and who will be impacted by your decisions?
  • The Elephant in the Room: corporatisation and acquisition – what can it mean for you and your practice, post-sale?
  • What to do next - work part-time, do locum work or simply retire?
  • Tax implications and strategies on sale.
  • Superannuation strategies on the sale of your business.

Learning Objectives

  • Preparation work - how do you get your practice ready in order to sell?
  • Learn which exit strategy option is right for your practice, and why.
  • What to do if you plan to sell your practice in the next few years - how to increase its value, and what not to do.
  • Understanding the different accounting considerations.
