SUCCESSION PLANNING

Successful succession planning is critical to a business’ continuation when ownership or a management team is changing or being replaced. Business transition, whether large or small, requires a great deal of thought and planning. As a third generation family business, Frank Carroll Financial has gained first-hand experience in completing successful transitions. We have also established a wealth of experience advising and guiding other organisations through this complex but ultimately rewarding process.

WHEN AND WHERE TO BEGIN

Wherever you are in the business cycle, we can help. While the length of time it will take to create a transitional plan varies with each business, beginning the process early ensures that the transition will happen as effectively as possible. We recommend beginning the process at least five years ahead of your planned transition date. This maximizes opportunities to avoid unnecessary taxes, fees and delays whilst allowing you to take full advantage of financial benefits in preparation of your future retirement.
