    Succession Planning

    If you are not a sole business owner, it’s important to know your business can be protected upon occurrence of certain events such as retirement, disability, and death of a co–owner. We can help you stay ahead of the curve with a buy/sell agreement — a binding contract9 between business partners that defines who can purchase a departing owner’s share of the business and establishes what price will be paid for that share. The agreement is designed to help:

    • Protect against unwanted owners entering the business
    • Create an immediate market for a business owner’s interests at death
    • Provide funds for heirs to continue the business and/or pay estate taxes attributable to the business upon the owner’s death
    • Reduce the risk of disputes with the IRS over the correct value of the business in the owner’s taxable estate

    Buy/Sell Agreements often use an insurance policy as their primary funding vehicle.
