What is Shareholder Protection?

Have you ever considered what happens to your shares if you pass away? If so, you'll want to make sure that fair value is paid to your family, and the ownership of the business is transferred smoothly as you intended.

Our advisers at LifeSearch can help ensure that your company and surviving shareholders have the cash needed to make this happen, without paying unnecessary Capital Taxes.

How much do I need?

Understanding the value of your shareholding is a great place to start. Use the handy calculator below as a starting point.

For a more precise understanding you should speak with your accountant.

I already have personal insurance

Great, but that cover pays directly to the family and may create legal and tax issues. A Shareholder Protection Policy pays to the surviving shareholders, so that they have the cash to buy the shares, the family gets the cash and the company retains control.
