1. What is your retirement income goal?
If it’s selling your business, you’ll need to make sure your buy-sell agreement does what you need to ensure a buyer and fair price for your business.
2. Do you know what your business is worth?
Without knowing the value of your business, it’s hard to determine how much it can contribute to your retirement income. It could be problematic for you and your successors if your stated value is more or less than your business’s current or actual value.
3. Do you have a plan in place for a smooth transition?
A buy-sell agreement that reflects your intended buyer, the terms of the agreement, a purchase price, and timeline of the sale helps everyone involved in the transition and can help avoid costly delays and arguments among owners.
