4 Ways Buy-Sell Protects Your Business

The Advantages of a Buy-Sell Agreement

If you pass away suddenly, a buy-sell agreement makes sure the business stays afloat.

4 Ways Buy-Sell Protects Your Business:

  • Life insurance creates a lump sum of cash to fund the buy-sell agreement at death.
  • Life insurance proceeds are usually paid quickly after a death, ensuring that the buy-sell transaction can be settled in a timely fashion.
  • Life insurance proceeds are usually income-tax free; a C corporation may be subject to the alternative minimum tax (AMT).
  • If your policy builds sufficient cash value, your partner can use that money to buy your share of the business if you retire or become disabled.
