Robert M Kennedy & Co offers relevant support for our clients regarding succession planning.
Handing over a business to family members successfully can mean the difference between being financially sound going forward or losing the value of many years of hard work.
More than 70% of family owned businesses do not survive the transition from founder to second generation. Developing and implementing a well-designed plan is essential to long-term success of businesses from the early start-up to future iterations.
Succession planning applies irrespective of whether family members or others are taking over a business. One day a business exit will be required and succession planning covers the key steps to prepare the business for that event.
With a business sale, we can prepare the necessary financial information required to market the business and advise on the tax implications of the different methods of sale.
