Business insurance is a financial solution that enables businesses to anticipate and find solutions to financial problems which may arise due to death, disability or retirement. Three participants of the business are identified : the owner\s, the business and the employees.
The death of a co-owner or partner causes a problem to the remaining owners or partners, family of the deceased and\or the dependants of the deceased. The family of the deceased wants to receive value for the deceased’s share while the remaining owners need to ensure that they have sufficient funds readily available to acquire the deceased’s share in the business.
If they are unable to buy the deceased’s share, the executor may have to transfer the interest in the business to the deceased’s heirs, which may force the surviving members to take in a business partner or co-owner whom they would not otherwise have considered.
Life insurance offers a solution to both parties. The owners of the business can enter into a buy-and-sell agreement, whereby the surviving owners agree to buy the deceased’s share in the event of death. The deceased’s executor is obliged to sell the share in the business to the surviving owners. Life insurance is used to fund this agreement.
