Mazars Ireland’s Tax Partner Alan Murray

Mazars Ireland’s Tax Partner Alan Murray takes us through the key considerations when beginning the succession plan for entrepreneurial business owners; and the importance of early planning to avoid any additional or unnecessary tax costs.


There are a number of areas to focus on when considering succession planning, including pensions, business assets, wills, lifetime thresholds, transfer of business and additional reliefs and exemptions. In the latest episode of the series, Alan outlines what succession planning really means in practice and the key steps entrepreneurial business owners should take when devising the succession plan for their business.
