What is Business Succession Planning?

What is business succession planning and why is it important for any business owner? They say you can’t take it with you: If you have built a successful business, you need a viable succession plan. In essence, you need a plan that will enable your business to withstand the absence of you.

Good business succession planning involves factors commonly associated with estate planning and transactional law. It often concerns complex family dynamics and intergenerational legacies, encompassing emotional components and practical realities. It calls for maturity and experience.
