A good succession plan will address both the people and the money that are involved. This planning is crucial if your succession plan is supposed to generate the money you will need during retirement. Concerning the people involved, your succession plan may involve family members already familiar with the business. Their knowledge could help ensure continuity during the change in leadership.
Naming a successor for your Florida business is a very important step for your succession plan. However, before you name someone as the successor, make sure you discuss it to ensure they are ready for the responsibility. Too often, a parent will be highly passionate about their business, but the child just sees it as a job. Taking these things into account can help ensure you make the best decisions for your future and the future of your business.
Suppose your children or other family members don’t want to take over the Florida family business, or you don’t think that they would be up to the challenge. In that case, you may want to consider one of your employees as the successor in Duval County and surrounding Northeast Florida areas. Long-term employees often make excellent owners because they know the business better than anyone.
No matter what you decide to do with your business, it is good to start planning for it today—having a written succession plan in Florida does not mean that you absolutely must follow through (unless there is a contract in place). If circumstances change, the business plan can be updated as needed. By working with an experienced Jacksonville, Florida business attorney to create a good quality succession plan, however, you can give your successor the best possible chance at success through the transition and well into the future.
