Timing The Sale Of Your Business In Light Of The 2020 Election

Host Clinton Johnston

Should I stay or should I go now? What does the recent election tell us about whether or not it is time to get your company on the market? Regulatory burdens, tax rates, inflation and interest rate, trade policies, and general economic stability or the lack thereof are all important influences on our businesses that are predominantly controlled by the federal government. Every two years we face the potential for major shifts in these influencing factors and 2020 was no exception.

We missed the blue wave and dodged the status quo this November and a likely split government for the next two years has left business owners wondering what aspects of the Biden Plan are likely to be enacted at what remnants of the Trump Administration's agenda will survive. In this webinar we will discuss those aspects as well as identify a few tell-tale signs of how the wind is blowing post-election so that owners can continue to make up-to-the-minute decisions on this important life event.
