Considerations for Succession Planning
Ahead of your meeting to discuss the future of your business, there are a few key elements to consider. Our succession planning solicitors will, of course, explore this sensitively with you and offer guidance and solutions.
There is a large breadth of options and it may well be worth discussions about the future with your family or business partner to ensure that all parties are on board.
The last thing you would want is an acrimonious dispute over who controls or owns your stake in the business.
Benefits to Succession Planning
Having discussions with your family about their future as well as that of the business could instil further determination for them to help the family business to thrive.
Depending on the structure of the business you are involved in, there may be scope for inheritance tax relief. To benefit from this, plans do need to be strategised and put in place well in advance. Find out more about what happens to your business when you die over on our blog.
By benefitting from the cross-departmental guidance of our corporate and estate planning specialists, you can be confident that all bases are covered in a succession plan.
Avoid leaving a dispute behind; make provisions so that relations between your family and your business, and your legacy, can continue amicably.
