Shareholder Protection Advice

If your business is owned by shareholders or belongs to partners, you may not have considered what will happen if one of them dies or becomes seriously ill.

In addition to losing the benefit of their experience, if a shareholder or partner dies, their rights or investment in your business could pass to someone who has no experience of your business or who does not share your aims. This could cause disruption for your business and stress for them at what could already be a difficult time.

Often the remaining shareholders or partner(s) would want to buy out the person who has inherited rights or an investment in the business, but they may not have enough capital available. At a time of vulnerability with questions about the future of the business, it may also be difficult to borrow money from a bank for this type of purchase. In this situation Shareholder or Partnership Protection could provide a lump sum to finance the purchase.
