Estate planning allows for your assets to be distributed the way you want them to be after you are gone. As a business owner, estate planning takes on even greater importance, as a significant portion of your wealth (and your family’s source of income after you are gone) is likely tied up in your business. Failing to put measures into place for your business can leave your business legacy by the wayside. It’s important to start estate planning early and communicate and reassess with your advisors, business partners and family. With a strategy in place, you can feel confident that your business and your loved ones will be taken care of, no matter what.
