Comprehensive Wealth Creation

Our Business Succession Plan Service

Through this program, we facilitate introductions, connections, and consultations between existing companies and groups of employees to ensure a successful handover of ownership. This allows entrepreneurs and employees to find opportunities for new business ventures. In doing so, we allow collaboration between former business owners, job training programs, community development organizations, banking partners, and more.

At the BBA, we understand that business succession is an important step for any business, so we take a comprehensive approach to the entire acquisition process. We assist with the planning and execution of a business transfer from start to finish. This includes assistance with developing comprehensive plans for wealth transfer, inheritance tax planning, estate planning, and asset protection strategies. Our team also helps business owners with the financial, legal, and tax implications of a successful transfer.

The purchasers could be groups of employees, individuals, or groups of entrepreneurs. There are no detailed eligibility criteria for this program beyond business owners interested in selling their businesses and entrepreneurs interested in purchasing them. Once entrepreneurs are accepted into the program, their creditworthiness and ability to raise or borrow capital will be assessed to ensure a successful acquisition process.
