Business Ownership and Management Succession Planning

Planning for the succession of a business means weighing dozens of competing and sometimes conflicting issues:

  • Should the business stay in the family or should you sell?
  • How and when should you transfer control?
  • How do you communicate and document your goals and vision?

RSM works with you to address these and other issues from a personal, financial and operational perspective, and to design a succession strategy that matches your vision and fits your circumstances.

To help business owners through key readiness considerations, RSM established the Center for Business Transition.
