Wills for Business Owners

Our specialist Business Will lawyers are highly experienced and are on hand assist on the complexities of Will involving business assets. We will help guide you through all the necessary steps, so your business interests are protected.

Business interest

There are numerous reasons why you should make a Will, for example, the appointment of executors, trustees and guardians and making sure that the right people inherit your estate.
However, as a business owner or someone who holds a business interest, it has a significant bearing on how you should write your Will and plan your estate.

A simple Will may not be effective or adequate, therefore, a more comprehensive Business Will might be required. Several reasons for this include:

  • For certain businesses, the business might cease trading upon death. This could cause a disastrous effect on the value of the business or at least its ability to trade in the short term.
  • You might wish to appoint different people to administer your business to those for your personal estate.
  • For inheritance tax efficiency

Our solicitors have many years of experience in advising business owners on issues such as Inheritance Tax, succession planning, and Wills.

Business Succession Planning

The main objectives for effective business succession planning within a Will include:

  • Addressing the personal requirements of owners
  • Ensuring a smooth transition for all – staff, family & investors
  • Ensuring the ongoing financial viability of the business
  • Ensuring the ongoing management and control of the business
  • How are business debts & personal guarantees dealt with?
  • How will the transfer of ownership be funded?
  • Maintain the equity of continuing owners
  • What are the Tax Considerations?
