  • Intergenerational succession

    Family businesses are a diverse group of business entities with varying degrees of family influence, size, type of business and location. However, they are united by the challenge they face – succession and the survival of the company as a family-owned entity. The succession process is a very difficult issue for family businesses, in which the emotional aspect plays an important role, since the continuation of family heritage and traditions is at stake. 

    The goal of the succession process is to guarantee the sustainability of the business in the face of inevitable generational changes, and to secure the family’s future through the use of accumulated assets. In order to achieve lasting solutions, they need to be based on solid foundations, and this also applies to the succession process. Succession planning requires precise alignment with family and asset circumstances, different forms of business, and specific goals and objectives. This is necessary to ensure that the two most important values are protected: the welfare and security of the family and the continuation of the business. Selecting tools to safeguard the interests of all parties and developing a contingency plan for unforeseen events are also crucial in the succession process.

      The court objected to the very common approach among the tax authorities, but also often among the courts, of attributing an implicit awareness of participation in a fraud by pointing out that the evidence on the record did not show that such awareness existed. The court ordered that very precise criteria be taken into account that would make such awareness of fraud plausible.
