Forming your business is only the beginning. You have to work hard to maintain your business and make it as successful as possible. But what if the time comes when you no longer want to run or own the business or you become unable to operate your business due to an illness or disability? There are issues that must be considered when planning the succession of your business, including:

  • Do you want to end the business?
  • Will you transfer ownership to another person?
  • Do you have a will or trust?
  • Is your business family owned?
  • Do you have children?
  • If single, are you planning to get married?
