Succession planning needs to be considered in order to protect wealth for the next generation. Transitions are relatively rare events so greater attention needs to be spent on the tax aspects. This includes how succession will impact on existing structures and future structures.
Differing succession events such as by death and inheritance compared to lifetime transfers of wealth will create significant tax issues that impact on the wealth to be passed on.
Families need to be aware of the impact of gift taxes, inheritance taxes and estate taxes on the family wealth on succession. The steps to be taken to mitigate tax with the proper use of wills, gifts, charitable giving and trusts, combined with exemptions and reliefs and life insurance should be part of any succession plan.
