Why Should A Business Owner With A Serious Health Condition Do Continuation Planning?


Business continuation planning helps avoid the problems that can occur when a business owner is unable to work either temporarily or for a longer period of time, or dies prematurely.

For the business, continuation planning:

  • Allows the business to continue to function with the temporary or permanent absence of its owner.
  • Prevents disputes.
  • Allows for the maintenance of control.

For your family, continuation planning:

  • Prevents conflicts among the family and with surviving owners.
  • Assures a fair price for the business.
  • May set the value of your business for federal estate tax purposes.

A planning day is a good time to think through a continuation plan as well as other subjects affected by your health condition. For information about a planning day, including who to include in it, click here.
