COVID-19: Managing the impact 

Helping you and your business through the challenges

85% of UK businesses are family owned making them the backbone of the UK economy (Institute for Family Business, 2018). However, they are not without their own unique set of challenges. Many of our family businesses are multi-generational therefore managing and nurturing the family relationships is really important, particularly when looking at succession; this is something our team do very well. Our team provides family business clients with a personalised service ensuring the business thrives as well as meeting the personal needs of the family.

  • with your own personal tax affairs and as a business owner, helping you to extract your profits efficiently and prepare for retirement

  • plan for succession, ensuring the business remains successful for future generations and the wealth of the business owner is protected
