Succession Planning

Paramount Succession Planning Services

If you own a family business, retirement isn't simply a matter of deciding not to go into the office anymore. You've got some critical questions to answer like...

"What happens to the business when you're no longer running it?"
"Will you have enough money to retire?"

The family dynamic complicates the whole transition because of the relationships and emotions involved. Most people are not comfortable discussing topics such as aging, death, and financial affairs.

Comfortable or not, succession planning should be a priority for any family business considering that more than seven out of ten family-owned businesses fail to survive the transition from founder to second generation, typically falling prey either to estate taxes or family discord - or both.

Developing and implementing a well-designed succession plan is essential to the survival of a family business from one generation to the next.

We help you with these key issues -

  • Keeping it in the family. Are you going to pass the business on to your family or sell it to a third party? We help you weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each of these options.
  • Who's going to run the business when you're gone? Management and ownership are not one and the same. You may decide to transfer management of your business to just one of your children but transfer equal shares of business ownership to all your children, whether they're actively involved in the business or not.
  • Minimizing the tax bite. The tax burden when transitioning a family business can be significant. The challenge is that a family business is not generally a liquid asset, but taxes are typically due when ownership is transferred.
  • Making it fair. Transferring family ownership often adds a tremendous amount of stress to individual family members. We talk with each of the family members to ensure that they feel they a getting an equitable and fair share of the pie.

What we do for you...

  • Once we understand how you feel about the key issues above, we begin constructing your succession plan focusing on these 5 issues...
  • Business Valuation
  • Business Restructuring
  • Tax Consequences
  • Retirement Projections
  • Tax Projections

Early on in our relationship, he represented us before the IRS. His efforts and knowledge resulted in a very positive outcome.Rob continually updates his knowledge of tax laws and regulations to stay current, helping all his clients avoid costly errors and unnecessary taxation.You can count on his advice being ethically sound, up-to-date, and custom-tailored to each client. This is unique in our experience. As a thorough professional, Rob is available not just at tax time, but throughout the year for advice on tax matters and valuable discussions on business decision-making.He would rate six stars if that were available.

I was a nervous wreck about many many years of Tax problems. When I entered Robs office he was understanding, reassuring and confident that it could be resolved. For the first time in 12 years I am hopeful. There are a lot of con men out there. Rob seems like the real deal! We have just started the process so I will tell you how it goes when we're done. But I am hopeful we can work with Rob to work it out.

Succession Planning awards
Succession Planning endorsed

Because we’re CPAs and they're not™

Many people do not know how a CPA differs from a bookkeeper or tax preparer. The CPA designation is one of the most widely recognized and highly trusted professional designations in the business world. CPAs are distinguished from other finance professionals by stringent qualification and licensing requirements. Paramount CPAs have worked hard to obtain their CPA designation, and are committed to working even harder to deliver the value that that designation conveys. In fact, our goal is to be the No. 1 Succession Planning firm across the United States. So when you ask yourself, "Where can I find Succession Planning services near me?"... think no further than Paramount

When to upgrade from tax preparer to CPA?

Whether you are filing personal taxes or you own a business, if you are not already using a CPA, you have most likely already missed out on major tax benefits, deductions and credits. This is because Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), such as Paramount, are advisers to not only individuals on personal financial matters but are also licensed to advise businesses, financial institutions, nonprofit organizations and government agencies on a wide range of financial topics. This strict status and licensure ensures that only CPAs are legally qualified to understand complicated tax laws and how to to implement strategies that return the most benefits to individuals and businesses.
