Estate and Business Succession

Would your business be ready to deal with the resignation, retirement, illness or death of a party in the business? Every business should have a business succession plan which addresses how the business will adapt to unforeseen events and continue to operate into the future. If the right structures and mechanisms are not in place then the retirement, illness or death of a party can be disastrous for the business.

A business succession plan involves business owners and other interested parties agreeing on a strategy for the smooth transition of the business should there be an unexpected withdrawal by a party. It provides a level of certainty for stakeholders and their families and minimises the potential for conflict between parties and overall disruption to the business.
