Transition Planning

We know the transition can be challenging. We’re here to help.

From starting your first business, to an acquisition, merger or sale, VSH CPAs seasoned experts will guide and advise you through the process, minimizing stress and maximizing results.

We call it transition planning for a reason – there’s an exit, and for many there’s an entrance.

Shocking fact – 79% of business owners are seeking to exit in the next 10 years. Only 15% have spoken with their advisors about these plans. We know with 100% certainty that every business owner will stop being an owner at some point.  We also know that many businesses become more desirable to buyers with better preparation and value enhancement strategies.

We are dedicated to helping our clients thrive at each point in their journey. Providing expertise, guidance, and coaching; we assist businesses with getting their teams set for the next phase.  In times of startup, growth and exit, we are here to serve as your partners in business minimizing stress and maximizing results.

As your partners in business, we serve as quarterback and cheerleader, helping to steer your entire transition plan, whether you are entering or exiting a business. Seasoned, connected and consistently dedicated to excellence, our team at VSH is here to serve as your trusted partner.   We’re also here to serve you with tough questions and honest feedback.
