Benjamin Vance, CPA/ABV
Postlethwaite & Netterville, APAC • Baton Rouge, LA

Succession planning is a challenge for any business. Small business owners in particular face several distinctive challenges impacted by geography, pool of talent and buyers, and uniqueness of the business (among others). This session will help small business owners understand succession planning tailored to small businesses and help answer the following questions: Can the business succeed without me? Who are likely buyers (assuming an exit)? When is the right time to sell? What is my business worth (with me and without me)? What are my retirement needs? What will I do next? How can I find successors and supporting talent in rural markets or unique industries? How early do I need to start the process?
