Succession Planning with a Sale to Key Employees

Passing the torch to your key employees can be an attractive choice for exiting owners. But it takes a lot of careful planning. First step? Know the value of your business and your priorities from the sale so you can structure the buyout accordingly.

Explore strategies to supplement the sale price like salary continuation, deferred compensation, etc. that could help achieve your objectives without burdening the business. Remember, this route might not mean the biggest payday upfront, but often beats other choices over the long run.
