Business Succession Planning

What Happens To The Business
After You Have Gone?

You will spend a great deal of your lifetime building
your business.

Come the time when you are ready to transfer
the business to a younger generation, how will
you plan for it? Have you done so already?
Discover some of the unique issues in planning
for and implementing the transfer of the family-owned
business. Business coaching can help to navigate some of the delicate areas of your succession planning process. 

Estate Planning And The Business Person

How long is it since you have clearly analyzed,
what you would like to happen to your personal
and business estate upon your death?

Have the following matters really been addressed?

For example:

What is the business really worth today?

What amount of debt is outstanding?

What is the net worth of your estate?

How would your spouse be provided for?

Would a family member take over the business?

Would this person have to buy out your share?
Or perhaps all shareholdings?

Are there any other family members you would
like to provide for?

Would you want to sell the business and would you want your estate to provide an equitable inheritance to each family member?

If not where would the cash come from?

What are the Capital Gains Tax consequences of your Will?

You can ensure that the right amount of cash
is available to carry out your wishes
through estate planning.

Key Difficulties

Lack of  viability of the business

Lack of planning

Little desire on the owner's part to transfer the firm.

Reluctance of offspring to join the firm

Heirs or beneficiaries...how to tell?

But wait a minute... We've talked about what happens if you die. What happens if you don't? What do you want to happen with the business into the future? You plan to stay working until you drop, or do you have other things you want to do with your life in the years to come. Do you want the business to continue when you retire? Who will run it then? Will you sell it or pass it on to your children? Do they even want it? How will you get paid for it?

Business succession planning should be an ongoing process, not an event. It is planning to be in charge of the future you want for your business, and for yourself. 

Picture the future you want... see it - feel what it's going to be like - and then you can build toward making it the reality.
