You work hard to build and grow your business, but have you spent enough time planning an orderly succession when you wish to monetize the value you have created? Have you protected against an unexpected death or disability for you or key personnel? What would happen to your business? Would your beneficiaries be properly paid for the value you have built?
Our team has experience in business succession planning and can help you identify risks and opportunities you need to be aware of, and then help you develop strategies to address them.
KEY EMPLOYEE PLANNING
Every company has them; whether it’s the owner themselves or those key executives, sales personnel, or other team members – employees that are key to the success of the business. Do your key employees know they are important to you? Have you created compensation structures to incentivize them both to perform and to stay with your company? Are you protected if something were to happen to them?
We can help you develop strategies to protect your business from the loss, temporary or permanent, of a key person. We can also help you identify incentive options that can help recruit and retain the best people.
EXECUTIVE BENEFITS & COMPENSATION PLANNING
RECRUIT, RETAIN, REWARD
In today’s competitive marketplace, the ability to recruit, retain and reward employees is critical to the success of any business. It is especially important to take care of those people who help make the difference between success and failure.
It isn’t enough to simply have a “one-size-fits-all” benefit plan package. Executives value the benefits that will help them build and maintain their wealth. Given the limits imposed by the Internal Revenue Code on contributions to traditional qualified retirement plans, highly compensated executives may find it difficult to achieve their retirement goals.
From Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation Plans (NQDC), Executive Bonus Plans (EB), Cost-Sharing Plans (Split-Dollar Life Insurance Plans), to Supplemental Executive Retirement Plans (SERP), we provide different strategies to meet specific needs and help key executives find a benefit plan that goes beyond traditional raises or bonuses.
RETIREMENT PLAN & EMPLOYEE BENEFIT DESIGN
Is your retirement, 401(K), or other employee benefit program meeting the needs of the participants? Do they have enough information and do they appreciate the value of the benefit you offer? Are you offering a competitive plan while protecting yourself from liability?
A well-designed retirement plan and other employee benefits can be an important part of your company’s total compensation package – helping to recruit and retain quality employees. These plans can provide benefits to the business and the employees, but can also come with liabilities you need to be aware of.
We work closely with our clients to determine the appropriate plan design for their business, protect principals from potential liability where possible, and communicate these benefits to the participants. We help design plan features to fit the business, evaluate plan providers in the market, and implement the plan with employee enrollment and education. We continue to support the plan by coordinating with the HR team, conducting regular reviews, and assisting the investment committees.
