Succession planning is critical for every business. It ensures a smooth transition of your business to the next generation – whether that is a family member, employee, or outside party.

Getting started with succession planning is something that should happen sooner rather than later, as the transfer of ownership and management of a business is something that should be planned strategically to ensure all parties are happy with the outcome.

  • Developing a plan for transferring ownership and management of the business

Choosing the right business structure can have significant tax and asset protection implications.

Whether you choose to structure your business as a sole proprietorship, partnership, trust, or company, it’s important to consider your goals and needs when making this decision.

Regulators and other stakeholders are increasingly demanding that SMEs have structured governance and risk management frameworks in place.

Business and tax governance refers to the system of rules, practices, and processes by which an organisation is directed and controlled.
