Buy-Sell Agreements Webinar

The commercial, tax and structuring complexities

When buy-sell arrangements need to be considered
Essential tax planning and structuring requirements
Practical insurance coverage issues

When two or more parties carry on business together there are a range of trigger points that can lead to misunderstandings, confusion and disruption to the business activities. Death, illness, injury, divorce and bankruptcy can all impact on ownership interests in a business and the operation of the business itself. Buy-sell agreements can be used by businesses of all shapes and sizes to provide clarity, peace of mind and financial security to business owners as well as their family members and estates.

There are a number of different ways that buy-sell agreements can be structured and each option has different commercial and tax implications. Understanding the pros and cons of each option is vital when putting buy-sell agreements in place to ensure that interests of all parties associated with the business are protected.

The Buy-Sell Agreements Webinar works through the key issues that need to be considered when buy-sell agreements are put in place and when reviewing existing agreements. We look at the commercial issues, the main tax problem areas and some of the common practical issues that arise when putting insurance coverage in place.

  • The tax treatment of insurance proceeds for different types of policies and the entities they are held in
  • Underwriting considerations and policy premiums – the underwriting requirements and who should pay the policy
  • Identifying clients who should consider putting a buy-sell agreement in place
  • The difference between cross purchase and redemption arrangements
  • Identifying the tax issues for business owners, family members and deceased estates when trigger events occur
