Business Assurance

Ultimately, the success and profitability of a business depends on its most valuable assets which are the people, whether it be owners, directors or employees.

Business assurance is generally defined as risk assurance that serves to protect a business from loss or damage in the event that a key person dies or becomes disabled.

Business assurance is instrumental in any succession planning process and provides much needed certainty and financial liquidity.

The fundamental purpose of business assurance is to ensure that a business is able to continue operating after an unexpected event.

In addition, it protects a business owner as well as his or her dependants from financial difficulties as personal assets are usually tied into small to medium, privately owned businesses.

Business Structure Review

One of the most important aspects to consider when setting up a business is its ownership structure and a lot of time and effort should be spent on ensuring the right structure is selected.
