打算离开公共部门

不像辞去任何工作, leaving public practice is a bit more complex and takes a bit of planning.

You might choose to hand over to your partners, or sell to a third party. Some people sell their practice and stay on as staff for a handover period.

If you’re in partnership, then the exit of partners should be addressed in the partnership agreement.

This should also deal with the death of a partner. If your partnership agreement doesn’t cover these eventualities, now is the time to raise the issue with your partners and engage a lawyer to address them.

Regardless of whether you’re a sole trader or partner it’s never too early to put a plan in place for your departure.

A business valuation will likely be needed to determine an appropriate value for sale, but before this you should consider what you can do to improve the value of your practice – this should be an ongoing concern.

If you’re a sole practitioner you must have a plan in place to manage the event of your death or incapacity. Who will manage your clients until the business can be sold? If this is done poorly, the value of the business available for your dependents may erode.

Insurance

Claims made against accountants often arise many years after the services are performed.

即使你已经退休了, you still need to have professional indemnity insurance to protect you if a previous client makes a claim. 这有时被称为径流覆盖.

You need run-off cover for at least seven years after ceasing practice. Consider maintaining run-off cover for a longer period if you have concerns about a possible claim.
