Business Succession

All businesses can benefit from buy-sell planning.

  • It provides a definite market for transferring the ownership interest.
  • It specifies a set or determinable price.
  • It may provide some or all of the funds necessary to execute the agreement.
  • It maintains “closeness” of the business by restricting and planning who/what can receive the business interests.
  • It may provide liquidity to pay estate taxes (due 9 months from date of death.)
The best time to plan is before you have to. If you wait until you have to plan, you are reacting and not planning, and your options are very limited.
