Common Questions

Change comes in many forms: key personnel retire or change careers, the company’s ownership changes, market forces necessitate a shift in focus…there are many situations that can shake up a business. Succession planning ensures that your business has a plan for expected and unexpected changes. It involves finances, logistics, and plans for the smooth transfer of ownership and leadership

The best time to transfer ownership depends a lot on the valuation of the business. If you’re selling your business, consider whether its value will increase in the near future. Estate and gift taxes* may affect your choice to delay or expedite the transfer of your business to a loved one. Talk to an expert in business succession and tax law to get the best advice on when to initiate your transfer.

To be ready to transfer your business or make major changes in key roles, you need a succession plan that makes your objectives clear. Outline the details about the management tasks, accounts, clients, employee benefits, and legal aspects of your business, and identify key personnel and their potential successors.

Perhaps most importantly, ensure that your business’s assets are protected with sound investments and a long-term financial plan.
