Why do you need a Business Will?
Like most financially responsible people you have probably written a personal will to ensure that your estate goes to your chosen beneficiaries in the event of your death.
But what about your business?
What would happen if you, or one of your co-owners died or had to retire through ill health.
- Have you got a business will?
- Do you have a succession plan?
- Have you established a process that will ensure that the business could be bought by the remaining co-owners for a fair price?
If not, it might be worth thinking about what the consequences could be for you, your family or your business.
If a business has just lost a key co-owner or partner, it’s fair to assume that it’s unlikely to have enough cash flow to be able to buy that share. Borrowing funds from the bank is one solution, but in the current economic climate, how easy would that be?
Being unable to buy these shares or remaining part of the business, or having no agreement in place to manage this situation, could lead to expensive legal action, loss of control of the business and financial difficulties for any dependents.
Here at The Business Protection Company we are specialists in creating business wills for Owners of Sole Traders, Partners operating in Partnerships and for Directors of Limited Companies.
We look at your current arrangements and make sure that they allow for proper control of the business for the remaining co-owners, at the same time as providing the funding that guarantees a fair value for the outgoing owner or his or her beneficiaries.
We can provide expert advice in business succession planning and exit strategies.
"Business Wills can help you implement a succession plan for your business or assist you with forming an exit strategy."
