As a business owner in Tennessee, you will eventually come to a point in your life where you are either no longer willing or able to continue running your business. When this moment comes, we at Richardson & Richardson advocate having a business succession plan ready.
Business succession planning is an important part of estate planning, especially if you have specific wishes for how you want your business to be run after you are no longer at the helm. Do you want it to stay in the family? Do you have a specific family member that you want to pass the torch to? How do you want them to run it? What sort of changes should they make, and what should remain the same?
After asking these important questions, making a business succession plan ensures that you can answer them. You can set things up with your chosen business heir, making sure that you are both on the same page well before you step down. You can create a training plan that allows you to pass on every piece of important information and knowledge on how the ins and outs of your business work. You can ensure that things will remain to your standard. You can rest easy knowing that the business will be taken care of and continue to follow your core values.
