7 out of 10 family owned businesses will not survive the transfer of the business from one generation to another. Lack of planning and discomfort discussing topics such as aging, death, and financial affairs will more often than not result in loss of a business due to estate taxes, family discord, or some combination thereof.
If you want to assure that the business you worked so hard to build will be there to support future generations, you must clarify your plans for succession and finalize, as well as legalize your priorities.

Remember that inherited assets, such as family businesses, are often the cause of tremendous emotional strain and stress for individual family members. It is best to address any actions that might be seen as fair or unfair ahead of time, so that family members know what to expect and why you are making the decisions that you are making.
They may not realize, for instance, that the tax implications of inheriting a business might be more burden than they could financially handle or that decisions involving management vs. ownership have been taken into account.
