We explore the effects of income taxes, capital gains, estate and gift taxes, as well as address the complexities of a transfer (sale) to third parties, family members or key employees. We make recommendations to preserve and increase the market value of your business prior to the sale. We also produce Contingency plans to address unforeseen, catastrophic events.
