Succession Planning

Did you know that only 9% of the population are predicted to be able to retire comfortably? Another word for Succession Planning is Retirement Planning. There is a serious lack of retirement planning in Australia. It basically asks that difficult and confronting question: “How am I going to get out of this business?”


Typically there are a number of options:

  • Sell to a third party/competitor

  • Sell to existing partners

  • Hand over to family

  • Hand over to staff

  • Close down


It is a very stressful process to think about and most people tend to “put it off”. The main reasons these decisions are deferred are:

  • What will I do with myself once I sell my business?

  • I can’t get enough for my business when I sell it … so I’ll just keep working

  • I don’t want anybody to know that I’m thinking of getting out as it may hurt my business (especially if my competition or key staff find out)
