How to plan for the future of your business

Most people know about the desirability of a personal Will to ensure that their affairs are left in an organised way and that the right people end up with their estate. Wills also prevent unnecessary stress on those left behind.

However it is surprising how often business owners do not think about what would happen to their business in the event of their (or their business partner’s) death or inability to work.

Many small and medium sized businesses are very dependent upon key owner managers so that if they are taken out of action for whatever reason real difficulties arise. This can be a huge source of stress for the incapacitated business owner and those left running the business. It can also have an adverse affect on the business’ value and ability to generate profit.

Plan for the future today

Effective planning can help ensure that a business survives leaving an ongoing, viable asset. Lack of planning can result in business failure or it being controlled or run by someone who has no interest in it or the appropriate skills to deal with it.

Planning also focuses the mind on an effective exit strategy for business owners so that they can “cash out” at an appropriate point in time.

Get important documents in place

Simple key documents like Shareholders Agreements; Partnership Agreements; appropriate Articles of Association; and “Key Man” Insurances (coupled with appropriate Option Agreements) can make a huge difference.

A bit of forethought and investment now allows a business owner to maximise their return for all their hard work in setting up and running their business.
