Business Resilience and Protection Services

The recent Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the reality that, sometimes, the unexpected can happen. This has heightened many business owners’ awareness of the need to address key gaps in contingency planning. It is time to deal properly with some of the issues previously consigned to the ‘too difficult’ pile.

At Westcotts, we can help. Our Business Resilience & Protection Service has been specifically designed to be flexible, ranging in scope from providing a comprehensive root and branch review of your business contingency plans to dealing with a specific pressing issue. The service will also help you identify cost savings and give you direct access to a range of accountancy, tax, financial and legal professionals, all with key skills in dealing with owner managed businesses.

Throughout this, our goal is simple: to help you make sure the business is as resilient as possible if things go wrong. This can minimise the financial impact of an adverse situation, right up to and including protecting the viability of the business and managing the risk of conflict arising between business owners.

Our service can help you address any or all of the following areas:

  • LLP Conversion & Incorporation
  • Partnership & Shareholder Agreements
  • Making a Will & appointing an Attorney
  • Partnership & Shareholder Protection
  • Business Loan Protection
  • Key Person Insurance
  • Relevant Life Plans
  • Income Protection Insurance
