Succession Planning Many family business owners hope that their business can be transitioned to another family member. Based on our experience this is one of the most difficult things to do. Statistics gathered by industry and government support this. Scarrow Yurman & Co has an edge in helping clients in this area because we have strong personal relationships with the family, having served as both accounting and tax advisors on a personal and corporate basis. Well before any transition takes place, we can help both parties be realistic and set some critical success factors.
