Business succession

Will you transfer the business all at once, or in annual stages? How will the acquisition of the company be financed? Will part of it remain owed or perhaps gifted to children? Every business succession is different, but what they all have in common is that these are far-reaching events, both for you, as the entrepreneur, and for all the employees. We are more clearly aware of that than anyone.

Whether you wish to transfer your business or you are the successor, we can provide an insight into the value of the business and assist you with the entire process. For example, we design the business succession in a way that ensures you do not pay unnecessary taxes and record agreements with children, employees and/or third parties in contracts. But also bear in mind the assistance for any request for financing.

How can you best design a business succession? Naturally you would prefer not to pay tax, or to defer it for as long as possible. There are different possibilities for this.

One example is the application of the business succession facility. In short, the person who inherits the company or receives it as a gift is required to pay little or no gift tax and inheritance tax.

Naturally, if you are passing on your company, you want to pay as little tax as possible. If the transfer or the transfer method is not structured correctly, you, as the transferring party, may have to pay tax on the added value, such as the added value of the shareholdings or the value of your business. It is also possible that the gift tax exemption will not apply. So take the time for this and allow us to guide you through the process.

What is a company worth? An important question if you are to buy or sell a company. We can answer your question by drawing up a valuation report.

In the case of a transfer to employees, you want to arrive at a realistic sale price and avoid payroll tax. With a transfer within a family, you also want a clear picture of any gift aspects and to know whether external financing is needed. We can arrange it for you!

Do you, like many other small businesses, need advice and assistance with business succession? We can help you. On the basis of the current situation, we draw up a financing plan for the successor. This financial document forms the basis for a successful financing application. Together with data from the market and data on the company, a complete business plan is realised. We assist you in talks with potential financiers and assess the offers.
