This CPE course can be purchased individually or as part of the Estate Planning Certificate Program.

Owners of closely held businesses have unique estate planning considerations that should be addressed by the personal financial planner.

Updated for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017, this CPE course covers planning strategies and documents related to closely held business estate planning issues. This course features specialized knowledge areas including:

  • Special use valuations for real property used in a farm or closely held business
  • Family succession planning
  • Business continuation agreements
  • Buy-sell agreements

This course also covers continuation agreements to prevent familial disputes and to ensure continuity of the business.

As the personal financial planner, you should have a working knowledge of these agreements, so you can provide reasoned recommendations to your clients.
