Who Do I Choose as My Executor?

Safeguarding Your Business Legacy

Business owners need to plan for their estate and their business after their passing. A will plays a crucial role in determining the transfer of both personal effects and the owner’s share of the company. To make sure your interest in your company transfers to the person you trust, you should have a will.

The Role of Executors in Business Succession

Appointing an executor is a critical decision in the will-making process. An executor handles all the paperwork necessary to divide your assets after your passing. If you also own a business and do not have a plan to transfer it upon your death, it will be beneficial to appoint an executor who has some understanding of the business.
