Our approach to Succession Planning
Business Succession Planning
Ensuring the stability of a business is paramount to avoid any loss of goodwill or financial hardship and in the event of disruption, a proper framework can protect the future of an enterprise. A comprehensive business Succession Plan creates certainty and continuity for an enterprise by:
- regulating decision making;
- defining expectation as to roles and responsibility and consequence for non-delivery;
- planning for voluntary exit and replacement;
- documenting the passing of control and ownership within the enterprise upon occurrence of default, disablement and death;
- defining the valuation mechanism, payment terms and funding; and
establishing rights of exit from the enterprise and approval thresholds for an enterprise sale and major decision making.
Personal Succession Planning
Personal Succession Planning focuses on protecting family assets by ensuring the correct structures are in place to allow beneficiaries to be adequately and fairly taken care of, having regard to family circumstances, special needs, the prospects of dispute between beneficiaries and any need for protection against third party creditors.
Ensuring that the appropriate persons are entrusted with decision making in the event of personal incapacity and that superannuation entitlements pass as intended upon death also form part of the critical aspects of personal planning.
