“I am a small business owner operating an equipment distribution business in Fontana, CA. I feel fortunate to have known Jerry personally and professionally for over 22 years. Jerry was tempted to walk away when he first saw the mess I had created in growing my business, but he showed patience and persistence in getting our operation organized. Jerry has advised and assisted me with organizing our accounting system, business and personal planning, real estate acquisitions, major supplier negotiations, credit facilities and tax returns. His knowledge with the tax laws and requirements is quite reassuring. In short, I have known Jerry through good times and bad and he has proven to be a very valuable resource to the company and myself. If anyone has any questions, I would happy to talk to you and elaborate further”.

5 Ways to Transfer the Family Business

by Jason C. Morris, Esq. 

The following article on business succession planning appeared in the February 10, 2014 issue of Northern Nevada Business Weekly:

There are many estate planning tools you can use to transfer your business. Selecting the right tool will depend on whether you plan to retire from the business or keep it until you die.

The transfer can be an emotional minefield where some family members are participants in the business and others are non-participants.  Those participants may feel “obligated” to stay in the family business when they would rather do something else.  In addition, the transfer can be complicated due to estate taxes, gift taxes and capital gains taxes.

Moreover, sometimes the family business is only profitable enough to support one child, even though the non-participants may believe the business’ finances should support them. Or, only some or none of your children may have the abilities or skills to run the business.

As we approach the end of the year and you begin to evaluate your business & your profitability for this year and plan for 2014, ask yourself these questions:
