Business succession planning is most often related to family ownership of closely held businesses and the efficient transfer of ownership interests and management to heirs or successors.
Typically, business succession planning includes broader estate planning objectives to:
- Minimize tax liabilities
- Plan for contingencies and operational continuity
- Provide financial security for business owners and their heirs upon retirement, incapacity or death of a key principal
- Maximize value with a strategic sale of the business
- Implement charitable giving strategies
