Company succession for family businesses and medium-sized companies

Are you looking for a successor for your company? Manage the company succession correctly!

Sometimes the children or family members take over the business. But what if there are no successors from the family? Or the children do not want to continue the business? Neither as a shareholder nor in cooperation with an appointed managing director? Are you approving the family business changing hands? Then the company succession comes into focus.

A timely organized company succession is an essential prerequisite for the future of family businesses and medium-sized companies. It requires long-term planning for successful implementation. In doing so, it places high demands on the company and its advisors.


The S·K· tax advisors are specialised in company succession
When the company is sold, income, trade and sales tax are incurred - When the company is handed over within the family, inheritance and gift tax play a major role - but so does income tax.

What does timely planning of the company succession mean?
Shortly before your 67th birthday, 15 years earlier, completely spontaneously? Any point in time "can" be successful - we recommend that you do not take your chances! Forward-looking entrepreneurs constantly keep an eye on the succession of their company - because the search for a successor is difficult. That is why senior manager should find a suitable successor in good time. Companies face challenges in terms of innovation, digitalization, high competitive pressure and sometimes dependence on individual major customers. Old company owners and those interested in succession are also unsure about the application of the new inheritance tax law. And the exit tax and the reform of the real estate transfer tax can also be obstacles to business succession.
