Succession Planning Workshops for Immigrant Entrepreneurs

Immigrant-owned businesses too often lack a succession plan to continue operating when the owner retires, dies suddenly, or is forced to stop working because of personal issues.  Rather than being sold for fair market value, these businesses abruptly close their doors.  Neighborhoods lose out and workers lose jobs. 

“Blueprint” is a set of six 3-hour workshops on Succession Planning which cover:

Transition Planning - Why Plan Now?
Anticipate unexpected circumstances • Find the best strategy for you •Avoid costly expenses and taxes

Selling your Business  
How to make a smart sale • Understand the sales process •Locate trustworthy sales professionals • How to find qualified buyers 

Business Valuation – How Much is Your Business Worth? 
Determine the value of your business • Common valuation approaches • Steps you can take to increase the value of your business

Legal and Accounting Issues
Structure a business to minimize taxes • Deal with regulatory and legal issues • Organize legal and financial documents 

Transferring Ownership
Who will take over? • Select and train successors • Understand the role of the family • Manage the transition smoothly

Estate Planning
Continue business operations after owner’s death • Minimize taxes during business transition •  Optimize benefits to family members
