Estate Planning Checklist for Beginners, Part Five

Welcome back to our blog series concerning estate planning for beginners. In this article, we are going to take time to talk about two aspects of planning that are important for business owners and those that have loved ones they’d like to leave belongings to.

Business Protection

If you own a business at the time of your death you should include a succession plan in your estate plan. If you own a partnership, there should be a plan or buyout agreement set forth so there aren’t any loose ends upon your death.

Beneficiaries

It’s important to name a beneficiary for all financials. This helps the accounts become automatically payable upon death to the correct person.
