Securing company succession is the greatest challenge for an enterprise. The regulations on company succession also affect the fate of others.


Consequently, managing succession with foresight is an indispensable part of any successful company policy. This may be achieved by way of anticipated inheritance, a will, and taking the consequences for taxation into consideration when drawing up the articles of association.


Until 2014, an estimated 22,000 family-run enterprises per annum will be handed over. At 86%, the most frequent reason for handing over a company is that the owner reaches retirement age, followed by transfers due to the death (10%) or sickness (4%) of the owner. Handing over a company is not easy for every owner.


Thus it is beneficial to have a qualified advisor, preferably your trusted tax consultant, assisting you. With his help, company succession can be settled in time to prevent high tax claims, fights about succession and family disputes.
