Retirement Planning for Business


Pension advice & retirement planning

Running a company takes up a lot of time and effort, which means long-term jobs like planning for your pension are often left to one side. Retirement is an issue that’s important for everyone, but especially so for successful entrepreneurs who have to also consider the impact to their business.

There are several things that business owners can do to save a lot of time and money down the line. As Independent Financial Consultants, CHN search the whole of marketplace to find the right solution for your requirements.

Assess your options

As a small business owner, you have a wider range of options available for retirement than those with “regular” employment. Indeed, one of the benefits of being an entrepreneur is having the flexibility to determine exactly when you will stop working.

Taking care of your staff

If you’ve got employees, they will need a retirement plan too. When you’re trying to decide which type of retirement plan to set up, think about whether you want to match employee contributions, or make contributions regardless of what the employees put in.

Thinking about the future

What’s going to happen to the business when you retire? You may want to sell it, or want someone in the company take over running the business.

In either case, you might be able to use your business to fund your retirement. If you sell the business outright, you could use the funds to live off in retirement. If someone else takes over, you may be able to negotiate a continuing role to provide further income from the business.

What about your dependents?

When you’re planning for your retirement, you should also think about what will happen after you pass away. If you want to provide for your spouse and/or children, you need to make provisions for them in your retirement plan. It may even be possible to leave the business to them as a legacy, so that these beneficiaries could receive income after you pass away.

Retirements are lasting longer than ever, and thorough, advance planning is paramount. By doing this, it’s possible you can have the retirement you and your family have always wanted.
