Law firm Hart Brown’s 9th Annual Economic Forum will be held on Thursday 20 June 2013.
Prior to the main event, two free workshops will run aimed at business owners, leaders and board directors, one on the subject of succession planning for a business, and the second on advice for commercial property landlords and agents.
When setting up a business, the last thing anyone considers is how the business will continue in the event of one’s death. To ensure that the business continues to run successfully in this event, it is crucial to have succession planning in place. Aspects to consider include how much will the taxman get, and if a business partners dies, will one of their relatives be calling the shots?
The workshop Succession planning during your lifetime and on death , hosted by Hart Brown’s partners Nigel Maud, Shaun Parry-Jones and Chris Thurlow, will provide some real life case studies highlighting how this topic can affect any business. Other topics to be considered will be: making business provisions in wills, inheritance tax including business property relief, cross option agreements and the transfer of business assets generally.
The second workshop, Commercial Property: for landlords and agents, hosted by Hart Brown’s partner Roderick Campbell, will offer the latest practical advice on retaining existing tenants and attracting new ones, and will cover topics that include Energy Performance Certificates, Business rates relief for empty property, Dilapidations Protocol, Strategies for rent reviews in the recession and Tenant Insolvency.
The workshops will be held at the University of Surrey, and registration will open at 3pm. Places are limited to 20, so booking is essential.
