Ray McHugh, IFA - Companies should consider business protection planning

Thursday 31 October, 2019

Why would you need to insure the Directors or Partners of a business?

Business owners will have other assets that their company owns such as premises, machinery, plant and cars. However, in most cases the most valuable asset the business has are its owners.

The importance of Directors Share of Partnership Protection

If a business owner or Director dies one issue that the other business owners face is whether they have the means and capital to purchase the deceased Directors share of the business outright. 

Would your company shareholders have the capital to purchase the share of the business outright? 

Would there be a risk of shares being inherited by other family members with little interest or knowledge of the business?

Would there be a risk of the shares being sold by a family member to someone you would not want to be a shareholder in the business?

Directors Share or Partnership Protection – How it works

Business Protection insurance provides a lump sum in the event of a shareholder’s death (or in some cases diagnosis of a critical illness) which allows the surviving shareholders/partners to buy the shares without the stress of having to find the capital. It enables the control of the business to remain in the right hands and it can continue to operate and run efficiently.
