How to protect your business – both now and in the future

Hemel Hempstead Business Ambassadors NFU Mutual and Machins Solicitors are hosting a free breakfast seminar on Wednesday 23 October. At this seminar, they will be sharing their legal and financial expertise to help you avoid the common pitfalls and navigate the commercial considerations to minimise the typical key risk areas for businesses.

What steps have you taken to protect your business? Managing the daily challenges of running a business takes time and energy. Finding additional time to ensure you have considered every eventuality and prepared for the unexpected can seem impossible.

From falling out with a business partner through to one of your key employees becoming seriously ill, protecting your company’s assets to ensure business continues without a hitch is critical. Knowing what type of protection you need is essential to safeguarding the future of your business for years to come.

Working through relevant case studies, sharing their combined knowledge and experience as well as providing practical input, the session will be partly interactive and will cover the following:

  • How to protect against curveballs and contingency planning
  • The benefits of shareholder agreements and business protection agreements
  • Looking ahead – exit strategies and succession planning
  • Tax considerations and using a pension to grow the business
  • Insuring against different types of risk and building business resilience

The breakfast will run from 7.30am until 9.30am to allow you to get on with the rest of your working day, but there will be time for those who want to learn more or just catch up with colleagues and business acquaintances over a coffee afterwards.
