Create a transition plan

successionWhether you plan to sell or transfer to another generation, a transition plan is critical to maximize the net proceeds from your most valuable asset.

Succession will be seamless for planned and unplanned exits. It involves forming a complete understanding of your wants, needs and expectations, as well as those of your fellow business owners and family members.

It also includes integrating input from multiple advisors such as your accountant, attorney, insurance broker, and financial planner.

  • When succession comes to mind, you decide to think about it later
