Succession & Tax Planning
Forward-thinking, practical, innovative and sympathetic advice and assistance for future-proofing your business
Succession vs Inheritance
Succession is the formal transfer of managerial control whilst inheritance is the transfer of ownership of assets. Whilst the two are often inextricably intertwined, they are separate processes, both of which can cause concern, conflict and consternation in a family-owned business.
The team at Barbers Rural are highly experienced in helping families to forward-plan for both succession and inheritance.
Equally as important is the transfer of control of the business and our empathetic team are able to assist families in all aspects of succession planning including:
- Facilitating family succession discussions
- Assisting with developing an appropriate succession plan
- Identifying and resolving inheritance issues
- Training and development of identified successors
- Ongoing support for those families processing a succession plan
Our aim is to help address the challenges that you face with a pragmatic, insightful and empathetic approach, ensuring that everyone is heard and no-one is overlooked.
