    Succession planning is imperative for family owned and closely held businesses. Done properly, succession planning allows business owners to smoothly transfer ownership and management of a company to their heirs or third parties. It can minimize tax liabilities, preserve the strength of a company, provide security for heirs, and create the maximum financial return for the company founder.

    Without business succession planning, many small businesses can be put in jeopardy in the event of the divorce, retirement, disability, or passing of one of the key owners or executives of the business.

    Some of the issues typically involved in business succession planning include:

    • Maximizing Financial Return
    • Minimizing Taxes
    • Continuance and Protection of Business
    • Buy / Sell Agreements/Trusts
    • Stock Restrictions
    • Creating Family Limited Partnerships
