Business Planning

Planning for and managing succession is critical to the perpetuation of a buisness; be it through transfer, sale or merger. Having a plan, as well as the means of funding the plan, are the keys to successful transfer or exit strategy. Ongoing review and updating the plan ensures that the security of the buisness stays intact until succession takes place.

There are numerous methods of transferring ownership. Our associates will work with your legal and accounting team to help you evaluate, develop and fund a succession plan that's appropriate for your buisness.

Finally, as a member of your group of advisors, Chris Ball and his team can help create a stategy that allows you to pass your buisness to those individuals you choose in the most cost effective way.
