Cross-Purchase and Redemption Implementation and Design

Most companies and owners will benefit from the implementation of a cross-purchase agreement or redemption agreement among the owners. These agreements may be designed to be fully funded (using life insurance or other means) or to utilize private funds when needed, depending on the facts and circumstances of the business. There are significant tax and practical differences to be aware of between these two types of agreements.
