Wilmslow Corporate Estate Planning
Could your business survive the loss of its owner or major shareholder? Do you have all the necessary legal documentation in place to enable a smooth transition if you were to due early? Most businesses have no plan at all, but you would be surprised how often it happens.
We help you to protect your business. Not just regarding exit planning; tax mitigation; and shareholder agreements. We also look at how the business would be able to continue in the event of the owner’s early death.
Wilmslow Estate Planning Solutions
Our Wilmslow IFA and Wilmslow corporate estate planning team start off by making sure that all the basics are in place:
Does the business owner have a valid will that deals with their shares in the business? Is it up to date? Is it tax efficient?
Who owns shares in the business? Is disposal of shares covered in the company’s articles and memorandum of wishes?
Is there life cover in place to pay the full value of the shares to the deceased’s estate?
Who is going to control the business if you become seriously ill, or die early? Are they capable of doing so and do they have all the knowledge and expertise required?
Do you have a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) in place?
