Business Succession Planning


Business Succession Planning is important because you have spent your blood, sweat, and tears, building a business that has brought you great satisfaction.  Perhaps your children are in the perfect position to carry on the family business or maybe you have a loyal employee who is ready to take over the reins. What is the most tax efficient way to transfer the business to this person?  How can you create an incentive for this person to work hard and yet still keep some level of control for yourself in case things do not work out?  Are there any ways you can ensure that the business will continue to thrive even after you have left the helm?
