4.Conditions of each sale. Should the agreement require a lump sum payment in the event of certain trigger events or allow a sale to be sold in a period of one year? The company agrees with shareholders that the share in the event of death, disability or retirement is acquired by each of the company at an agreed price. The company acquires life insurance covering each owner. The business entity considers itself a beneficiary. After the death of an owner, the proceeds of death are directed towards the company. The company uses the product to recover the interests of the deceased owner. The estate or heirs of the deceased owner receive cash and the surviving owners have increased their ownership shares proportionately. A sales contract may be a separate independent agreement or consists of several legally binding clauses as part of a commercial partnership or shareholder pact and control the following business decisions: 4.Alternate valuations. Should the value of a property right be valued at a lower price for different trigger events? If, for example.B. an owner is terminated for reasons that are still free of charge or if he leaves his job before the specified retirement age, should the price to be paid by other shareholders be reduced? Here we have two simple examples of a properly funded buy-and-sell agreement.
A well-funded agreement will ensure that the business continues to prosper and that the partner or his heirs are properly compensated for the hard work he has invested in the company. Why use life insurance? Life insurance is an excellent choice to fund a buy-back agreement, as the proceeds of the death benefit are collected by the surviving partner tax-free. Life insurance also has the potential for tax accumulation. And in the use of life insurance, the value of the business does not increase because individuals own the contracts, not the business. An insured sales contract (which funds a buyout triggered with life insurance for participating homeowners) is often recommended by business estate specialists and financial planners to ensure that the buy-sell agreement is well funded and to ensure that there is money when the Buy-Sell event is triggered. In the absence of a sales contract, company executives may find that they are in business with the widow or widower of a deceased co-owner. The new owner may have little or no knowledge, experience or interest in the business and, even worse, may have an excessive view of the value of the business and its ability to generate revenue for owners.
