Get Legal Assistance from Estate Planning Lawyers Serving Montgomery County

Business succession planning is a vital component of estate planning for business owners. A Last Will and Testament or Revocable Trust describes how the value of an estate is distributed to beneficiaries, but often much deeper planning is required to ensure that your business is transferred successfully after your death.

What is the Focus of Business Succession Planning

Estate planning typically involves personal finances. Business succession planning, on the other hand, focuses on those who own a business, are corporate leaders, or in another type of corporate or business partnership.

Here are some reasons to consider business succession planning:

  • Ensuring your business stays within your family’s control
  • Shareholders and principal employees can be offered a stake in the business
  • Minimization of estate taxes
  • It can provide job security to employees and piece of mind that the business will survive after your death. For example, succession planning can involve laying out your wishes to oversee day-to-day business operations, provide for other beneficiaries in the business, and continue training for employees who will manage the company. It can also involve arranging the hiring, training, retention, and employment of family members or valued employees
