Rating
As the first wave of Canadian baby boomers retire over the next few years, succession planning will be vital for the long-term survival of many businesses. Canada is about to see a huge transfer of wealth from this generation to the next, yet many businesses struggle to ensure a smooth transition of business management and ownership. For family-owned companies, the ramifications may be even more sweeping. The personal issues they face, compounding other day-to-day business concerns, range from planning for income taxes to maintaining interpersonal relationships with family members. A good succession plan will manage a range of issues, such as people and talent, family dynamics, corporate structure, estate planning, insurance and share transfer, to name just a few. Who Will Take Over the Business? is for any business owner who wants to retire, sell, or transfer ownership of their business. It is designed to guide business owners through a comprehensive and strategic approach to the business succession process to ensure that the transition is carried out as smoothly as possible. Who Will Take Over the Business? is a must-have resource for every Canadian business owner.
