1-2-3 of Business (Business Owners)

Did you know that 70% of business owners don't have their most important business risks covered? As a business owner you could either continue in blissful ignorance and face the consequences, or ensure that you are one of the 30%.

Failing to address these risks could lead to dire consequences for your business and your family.
In order to determine the risk, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Will your widow(er) be called upon to pay the debts of the business? If you signed surety, chances are very good that this will be the case.
  • Who will spend your loan account after your death – your children or your partner’s children? If you don’t at least make provision to recover your loan to your business in the event of death, chances become very slim that you will recover it at all.
  • How will your dependants benefit from the value of your shareholding when you die? Your equity is the wealth that you’ve created in your business over your lifetime. If your dependants cannot benefit from this wealth, your hard work would have been in vain.
  • Do you have a signed buy-and-sell agreement in place and if so, when last was it reviewed?

The 1-2-3 of Business offers a lucid approach to a severely neglected part of risk management in business, i.e. risk emanating from the death or disability of the owners of that business.
