Did you know that a mass exit of business owners is coming?

A recent survey by accounting software provider "Xero" found that the percentage of business owners aged 55 and over has more than doubled in recent years. 

The research suggests that more than 20% of business owners will try to exit their businesses in their 60's.

 

In Australia this equates to around 420,000 retiring business owners over the next 10 years. This trend is likely to lead to a massive oversupply of businesses and a strong buyers market.
