Business Succession Planning

A comprehensive business succession plan is an essential element of a well-managed business. After putting in the time and hard work into building your legacy, you want the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your wishes will be carried out when the time comes for you to step down. Our business succession services are holistic, ensuring we view each step in the context of the bigger picture. Our experienced team assists with:

  • Obtaining accurate and reliable estimated business valuations
  • Strategizing cash flow to facilitate the transition without interruption
  • Identifying and addressing potential risks associated with succession
  • Managing the organization’s assets in the event of a sale of the business
  • Developing a tax strategy to minimize corporate and personal tax obligations

Estate Plan

Few people want to consider their demise or what could happen to their business in a worst-case scenario. But without an estate plan in place, your legacy could be vulnerable to disproportionate income tax and a complicated distribution of assets that may lead to unnecessary probate fees. Our team of professional accountants and financial experts can develop a thorough estate plan to ensure that both stakeholders and your loved ones will be protected.
