Quite often you hear ‘it could never happen to me’ or ‘I’ll sort it out later’. Well the old maxim of “failing to plan is planning to fail” is no better suited to the ignoring of crucial decisions on protection.
The success of your business can depend on those who own and run the business. Have you ever considered how your business would cope if a partner or shareholding director died?
It’s likely that the death of a partner or shareholding director would have a huge impact on the future of your business. The surviving partners or directors may struggle to continue the business or even to retain control of it. In the worst-case scenario, the financial strain may force the business to cease trading.
Similar problems could occur if a partner or shareholding director were to suffer from or be diagnosed with a critical illness. Your share in the business is likely to be one of your most valuable assets and you will no doubt wish to protect it for the benefit of your family.
Business protection can provide funds on the death of a partner or shareholding director. A legal agreement ensures that these funds are used to purchase the deceased’s share of the business from their estate. It is also possible for a similar payment to be made if one of the partners or shareholding directors suffers from or is diagnosed with a critical illness.
