Some questions to which every self-employed person must know the answer:
- Up to what age do you have to remain active to build up a fully-fledged statutory pension?
- From which pension fund do you expect to receive a statutory pension. In other words, worked exclusively as a self-employed person or mixed career employee, civil servant?
- How much will that pension amount to?
- Will that monthly pension amount be sufficient to maintain the current standard of living?
- Were extra legal pension provisions established during the active career? Are they sufficient? Are there still alternatives, often fiscally beneficial?
If you know the answer to all questions, then you are well prepared to retire later and you do not need to read on.
Do you know the answer to some questions not, do not hesitate to contact our office for an appointment. A specialist in that matter will discuss the various options with you.
From our practice, we note that it is often much too late to consider the end of a self-employed career.
Questions about the possible (forced) transfer of your own company, or about the follow-up that may arise, may also be addressed. Or is your company not eligible to be sold? Then termination or dissolution of the business?
During a conversation about this, other questions often follow. For example, how well is my partner protected when a sudden death occurs.
As an office, we want to assist you as fully as possible during your career as a self-employed person. And just as well to the end of that career.
