A few months ago, we worked on a parachain and have been trying to integrate into Kusama but we couldn't win the slot.

This is affecting our business. Would it be possible to have a single code base for both solochain and parachain so that we can switch to either parachain or solochain according to the requirement?

Or if we build a separate solochain, would it be easy to migrate storage into parachain, if we get slot in future for our parachain?

Definitely. If you look at cumulus repo that's got several runtimes that are sharing pallets and some common configuration. There's also the parachain-template that is a different node (different binary) and yet still shares some crates with the the polkadot-parachain node.
