Ellen McIlhenny - The Smart and Savvy Exit – Leaving the Business Without Selling
IBGR.Network - PROFIT Radio. #1 global business talk & news Network. Everything a business owner needs to start, grow, or exit a business. GROW WITH US.
Starting this week, the $28.6 billion Restaurant Revitalization Fund designed to provide grants to restaurants that have suffered through the COVID-19 pandemic will start taking applications.
Registration for the program started last Friday. Once registered, an application can be made for a grant. The application portals opened yesterday.
The National Restaurant Association has created a published a lot of data on how to make the process easier including:
Eligible businesses are ones that have at least 33% of their receipts from food sales. They also cannot have received the Shuttered Venues Operations Grant, cannot be or be owned by publicly held company, must not be a state or local government owned business, is not permanently closed, is not a non-profit, or is not in bankruptcy unless they have file chapter 11,12 or 13 and has an approved reorganization plan in place.
The minimum grant can be from $1,000 to $10,000,000.
Franchises can be eligible if the franchisor is publicly held if the franchisor is listed on the SBA Franchise Directory.
Applications will be processed in order of receipt but entities that can certify that they meet the definition of a woman-owned, veteran-owned, or socially and economically disadvantaged small business will be given priority for award if their application is filed within the first 21 days the application is open for submissions.
EIDL loans and grants will not be deducted from the grant.
What can the RRF be used for?
Payroll, Mortgage or rent, debt services, utilities, maintenance, and business supplies for the business.
And best of all – these grants will not be considered income for the company and is added to the basis of the company.
Show Objectives - The Why
Today I will be talking about exiting the business without selling. Many times, an owner may be ready to retire, but it is not the right time to sell. How can you make that happen?
