A few words from our tutor on what you can expect from this course

Course Description

The future of every business depends on the successful estate and tax planning to transfer ownership from one generation to the next. Surprisingly, only 10% of companies document a plan of succession. The absence of a succession plan could be critical for your organisation.

This one-day training course will give you key tools to understand estate and tax planning for succession and incorporate it into the strategic business planning framework of the whole organisation and start planning sooner rather than later.

All attendees will get a chance to engage in an informative Q & A session and will receive highly informative course notes.
