Guide to Succession Planning: How to Get Started

September 15, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Do you have a plan when you are ready to exit your business? Having a succession plan in place is key to unlock and protect the corporate value that you have built up over the years. Succession planning is a necessary strategic process for businesses of all sizes and should be proactively considered and planned now, for a potential divestiture later.

In this seminar, the team at Capital Assist will address the following:

1. What is a succession plan and why is it important?

2. What factors to consider when developing a succession plan?

3. What are the options on how to exit from the business?

4. How do I determine the value of my business and how can I increase my value before transitioning?

5. What are items to consider in determining the optimal structure of the transaction and tax implications?

6. What advisors do I need to assist in preparing and implementing the succession plan?
