Succession Planning is actually about putting in place a strategic business plan for your business which allows you to outline your business and personal goals. These goals relate directly to your ability as a business owner to extract the maximum amount of value from your business when you exit, to provide for your retirement planning needs.
If you do not have a strategic approach to business succession planning – any value you have been able to build into your business may well retire when you do!
It is important that a Buy-Sell Agreement or Business Will be set up with legal advice.
How is a Buy-Sell Agreement set up?

- the trigger events
- how the interest in the business will be valued and
- the respective buy and sell obligations of the business owners should a trigger event occur
- A funding plan is established to provide the cash to achieve the financial obligations of the business owners should any of the trigger events occur.
- The legal documentation is prepared.
