Running a business can be a rewarding experience. Retirement, dissatisfaction, illness, injury or death can mean that business ownership must be transferred. Business succession planning is how you deal with these events to reduce impact and cost.
Business succession planning strategies may include:
- winding up
- transfer to the next generation
- sale on market
- sale to other co-owners
- transfer to co-owners under a buy-sell agreement.
We can work with you on succession planning options.
