It can be overwhelming and complex to create an effective business continuation agreement. Our business planning professionals will guide you through each step of the process. Our objective is to ensure that your wishes are carried out should you pass away unexpectedly or decide to exit the business earlier than planned. A common element of business continuation agreements is a buy-sell or buyout agreement. This agreement will specifically outline what should happen if the owners separate. It is important for this agreement to contain four main points:
Presently, this agreement may seem like something that your business does not need. However, it can benefit all parties involved should something happen in the future.
Properly preparing for the unexpected also includes business continuity planning. This process identifies events that can disrupt the operation of the business and interfere with success and attempts to reduce the negative effects of such events. Some common events that business continuity plans address are natural disasters, a crisis such as the death of a CEO, a major security breach, or a terrorist attack. Your business continuity plan may also account for things like operational risk and risk financing.
It can feel overwhelming and stressful to try to predict and prepare for the unknown. Our goal is to be your trusted partner in this process and create a plan that will help reduce the negative feelings associated with planning for the unknown. We strive to assist you in preparing a business continuity plan that is both flexible and effective and meets the specific needs of your business.
