Business Succession Planning at Marshall Wills and Trusts

Safeguarding Your Business for Future Generations

The dedication you've invested in building your business is immeasurable, and it's crucial to ensure that this legacy benefits your loved ones appropriately. Business succession planning becomes essential if you consider selling your business or face unforeseen circumstances like serious illness or death affecting you or a business partner.

Risks of Inadequate Succession Planning

Lacking a robust business succession plan can lead to significant risks:

  • Your family might not inherit your share of the business, losing a vital source of financial stability.

  • The necessity to sell the business could arise, with proceeds potentially exposed to inheritance and capital gains taxes.

  • Proceeds from the business sale could be vulnerable to third-party claims, including divorces, creditors, or long-term care costs.

  • Future legislative changes could impact entitlements to Business and Agricultural Property Relief.

  • Business partners may find themselves unable to purchase the deceased's share, causing operational disruptions.

  • Inexperienced family members might be compelled to run the business, possibly leading to a decrease in its value.
