Estate Planning For Business Owners Archives

Protect loved ones from business liabilities if you pass away

Many businesses are dependent upon the owner to be there for daily operations. This includes medical practices owned by the primary doctor, law firms owned by one of the attorneys and some small service-based businesses. If your company falls under this umbrella, your estate plan will play a critical role in how things are handled when you pass away.

Consider your goals when you create your estate plan

As a business owner, you have a lot to think about. It is easy to become so focused on your company that you forget to plan for your family members. When you take the time to think about what they might go through when you pass away, you can see why you need to do something now to help them then.

Plan for your family and your company after you pass away

Taking care of your family when you pass away is a primary concern of most adults. When you own a business, you have to ensure that the business will also be taken care of. This is especially true if you want the company to provide for your family members. Your estate plan needs to address both of these areas of your life.

Parts of an estate plan can go into effect before your death

As a busy adult, you probably don't relish the thought of adding anything else to your schedule. There is one thing that you need to think about adding to it today: estate planning. It might seem as though you have plenty of time to get this done; however, you just never know when something will happen that will require parts of it to be put into effect.

Know how your estate planning decisions might impact heirs

One factor that people who own a business have to consider is the value of their estate when they pass away. Estate taxes can wipe out a good portion of what the heirs are supposed to get. There are options that you can use to reduce the possible estate taxes that are going to come. Here are some points to consider:

Small business owners have unique estate planning needs

You probably don't want to think of the end of your life; however, this is something that you must consider if you have a business. When your business supports your family members, they need to know that they will still be taken care of when you pass away. This means you must ensure that you have a plan in place to meet their short-term needs, as well as one that helps keep the business afloat, so they can continue to receive that support.

Estate plans are little different for business owners

Running a business is hard work. In many cases, the business owner will work tirelessly to try to grow the company. This doesn't leave much time for other things, but all owners should make time to ensure they have an estate plan established.

Businesses need to have a succession plan in place

Business owners often plan for a lot of different situations that might come up. There is one very important plan that they might not ever think about putting into place until it is too late -- a succession plan, which can be part of an estate plan. Anyone who owns a business needs to get this done as soon as possible or else there is a chance that the company and employees will suffer if something happens to the owner.

Estate plans encompass more than just a will

When people count on you, making sure that you have your affairs in order is imperative. One way that you can do this is to set up your estate plan. You have to think carefully about what you are going to want everyone to get. Once you have that plan, you will be able to determine how to make your wishes happen.

Create a will now or Arizona will decide who gets what

Whether you have a massive estate, including a house, investment accounts and other valuable possessions or you only have the equity in your home to your name, you should take the time to create a last will. Doing so provides you with control over how your assets get allocated when you die. It also provides peace of mind, because you know the people you care for the most will receive your assets.
