Financial Advice for Business Owners

Here at The Private Office we can help business owners, self employed or entrepreneurs with a range of financial planning matters.

Building your business can take years of hard work and dedication.

Our expert business financial advisers can help you accomplish these goals and work with you to protect the legacy that you’ve worked hard to achieve.

Why financial planning is important in business

Running a business will create financial challenges, but will also present many financial planning opportunities along the way.

You may be looking to sell your business and ensure that the proceeds can deliver your ideal retirement.

You could be seeking to protect your business from the death or critical illness of one of its key persons such as a director or a shareholder. Or, you may be looking to grow the assets in your business and want to determine the best strategy to achieve this.

The Private Office can help you with this important business financial planning. Whether that’s lifestyle cash flow planning to see what your financial future might look like, or if you are seeking a solution to protect your company and its people, ensuring business continuity.

Life insurance to protect your business

53% of business owners state that if they lost a key person they would cease to trade. Insurance is therefore vitally important.

We can help with a range of insurances to suit you, including; key person, co-shareholder and income protection.
