Succession Planning: To Avoid Landmines, Seek Advice Outside the Family


By William H. Jennings  |  May 1, 2014

Succession Planning: To Avoid Landmines, Seek Advice Outside the Family

Succession planning is a difficult matter in any business. In a family-owned business, the difficulty is, if anything, much greater. Family politics and interpersonal relationships are always challenging – all the more so when the future of a business is at stake. Most family businesses are dominated by one or two strong leaders – often a founder, always an authority figure – who leave succession planning until the last possible moment, sometimes settling on a successor who doesn’t have the makings of a good future leader. The results can be disastrous. Picking the wrong successor can destroy the business. It can be equally bad to pick no successor at all.

Your Grant Might Be a Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing


By William H. Jennings  |  September 13, 2013

Due to a loophole in the Internal Revenue Code, grants to partnerships – unlike grants to corporations – are taxable income.  Worse, they are fully taxable in the year received, and unfortunately, there is no after-the-fact remedy.  Once the partnership receives the grant, the tax consequences are automatic.  Only by advance planning can it be structured properly to avoid this potential tax time bomb. An IRS loophole can lead to devastating tax consequences when partnerships receive New York State energy grants.
