Creating Business Succession Plans to Meet Your Individual Needs

Business succession planning is a highly personalized affair, requiring the development of plans that are narrowly tailored to your individual circumstances. Creating an effective plan for business succession requires that you consider your family circumstances and your business circumstances.

You may have one child who is heavily involved in your business and two more children who want nothing to do with your company. You may have three children who will sell off the business at the first opportunity and take the proceeds from the sale as part of their inheritance. You may need to ensure that a business partner can continue to operate your business without interruption from your family members who are unfamiliar with business operations.
