Estate/Succession Planning


A common misconception is that ‘succession’ and ‘retirement are interchangeable’. Whilst retirement is undoubtedly a component of business succession planning, it should not be the focus. Succession planning is more about ensuring a business can continue to operate and prosper regardless of who is at the helm of the organisation or operation. Succession planning isn’t just something that a person approaching retirement age should consider. Anyone who has founded, owned or has a financial stake in a business should consider it a key focus.

In planning the future of your business, you need to think about:

  • Identifying the capital value, worth and market price of your business
  • Managing the wealth it generates
  • Identifying and finalising how it will continue to operate in the future
