Limited Liability Partnerships
|The remaining business owners keep control of the company (control isn’t passed onto anyone else).
The deceased's estate can sell their shares at fair market value. Without a life insurance backed arrangement (including a cross option agreement) the future of the business and the possibility of the estate being treated equitably can be thrown into doubt.
The arrangement is tax-efficient.
|Own life: each shareholder or partner takes out a plan on their own life which is written in trust for the other business owners. Each shareholder or partner signs a cross option agreement. The remaining partners use the money paid under the claim to buy the shares.
Life of another: if there are just two business owners, they can take out life-of-another plans on each other. The owners also sign a cross option agreement. The claim is then paid to the remaining business owners who use the proceeds to purchase the deceased’s shares.
