Succession Planning

What is Succession Planning?

It has been defined as:

The planning process that the business owner goes through to identify the best options available in transferring assets, wealth and authority onto a potential successor or successors.

The key point in this definition is "Process".

Succession planning is a process and not an event. The smooth succession of a business resembles a flow of events that occurs over time.

Correctly handled, Succession Planning gives you the opportunity to maximise your financial reward.

It is a road map helping you travel from point A to point B.

Too many people leave it too late and this influences the process. A shortened process often eliminates options.

Without a process it can result in chaos, friction and bad feelings amongst family members.

Succession Planning gives you an opportunity to identify the best options and the time to implement them.
