Family Business

Keep it in the family

What can be more exciting, rewarding and a source of pride then running your own family business.

Family businesses are more often than not located within the owner’s local community, often providing vital employment in the area.

We adopt an holistic approach for our SME clients, providing advice and support ‘from the cradle to the grave’.

Are you a budding entrepreneur looking to start up a business? Should you set yourself up as a sole trader or a partnership?  A Limited liability partnership or a company?

We can help you make the best decision for you, and then help you with the formalities including your accounting package, tax compliance and company secretarial.   You can focus on the exciting new business, and we can help with the rest.

Where will your funding come from?  We can help with business plans and support you in identifying and meeting potential funders.

For those of you who have been around a bit longer and have a successful business, we can help you with the next steps.  That might be advising on efficient tax structures for the business and its owners, raising more funding, or identifying and performing due diligence on potential targets to acquire.  We can help with all of this.

And sticking with our ‘cradle to grave’ analogy, there will come a time when you want to move away from your business and enjoy your well-earned life without work!  We can advise on the most tax efficient methods of passing your business to the next generation, or help you find a buyer to sell to – at the best price!

And if things aren’t going to plan, we have specialists who can work with the you during those very difficult times to help find a solution to turnaround the business’s fortunes. Inevitably, some business cannot be saved and we can help you through in these regrettable circumstances.
