DURHAM, N.H. – Compensation for employees of family businesses can often be one of the most sensitive and complex issues that owners must manage.

The program begins at 8:30 a.m. at Granite State College in Concord. Registration and coffee begins at 8 a.m. Lunch and networking will follow at noon.
This program will discuss the tools that can be used and the business and tax issues related to compensation, including the use of bonus plans, deferred compensation arrangements and the various forms of equity, and phantom equity as part of both on-going operations and business succession planning.
