If you run your own business and are moving into the business succession phase, you know how important successful business transition financial planning can be to ensure your future prosperity and the legacy of your business. Yet, most business owners do not even know how to start the process of a business transition. Perhaps this is why 50 – 70% of all privately held businesses that are in play fail to sell. There are multiple factors to consider, but lack of business transition planning is key.
Considerations such as valuation of the business, financing strategies and communication among stakeholders are critical components of a succession plan.
