Business Planning

Strategies and solutions for corporate planning abound. What works best for one business owner may not fit another. Tax and non-tax considerations must be weighed to determine what works best for a particular business owner. Every case is unique and requires careful analysis of all relevant facts.

It is important to understand one’s “Why,” core purpose and long-range plans before proffering recommendations. Asking the right questions is the first step to identifying blind spots and developing a clear picture of priorities.

The Right Questions

  • What are the short-, mid- and long-term goals for the company?
  • Could the company survive without the owner/leader?
  • Where would you like to see your company in 10 years?
  • Do you have a succession plan?
  • Has your company been appraised?

Challenges Often Equal Rewards

Few challenges demand more of a business owner than successfully passing the family business to future generations. Yet when properly executed, the rewards are numerous. Family members have a special opportunity to preserve the hard-earned institution that reflects the family’s ideals and goals. Perpetual planning, when done correctly, can provide quantifiable and lasting results.

Business owners face many challenges independent of running their company; fringe benefit planning, qualified retirement plans, buy-sell arrangements, and operations represent only a few.
