Take Control of the Future of Your Business

What are your plans for the future of the business? Are you wanting to find more time to relax and enjoy your lifestyle? Are your children prepared to take on the family business when you retire? Have you actually had a family discussion about succession plans?

Succession planning is very much more than about making sure there is enough money in the bank. It is about ensuring the future generation is able to be successful with the day-to-day running of the business without struggling with the weight of a job they are unprepared for, or with experience they don't have.

With the knowledge that every business and family is different, Symes Accountants provides a 5-Step Succession Plan Process which works with every family circumstance.

For more information, download our Family Business Succession Planning brochure here, or contact our team today to arrange your first succession planning meeting.
