Family run businesses require specialist advice, a considered business approach and a different way of thinking. You also need an expert team of family business advisors to guide you in the right direction.

In the UK, the number of family-run businesses is on the rise, with approximately 75% of all businesses in the private sector now being family-owned.

Growing and running a family business presents unique challenges and requires a considered business approach and a different way of thinking. A number of family businesses do not survive the transition to later generations which is why you need specialist advice and assistance from experienced family business accountants.

This is where accountants for family-run businesses can help. Alexander & Co’s family business accountants have a wealth of experience and are here to give you the specialist knowledge to help you utilise opportunities to keep your business growing.

“The last two years have provided plenty of unforeseen challenges for family businesses. It has also brought succession planning to the forefront of many owner’s minds. Even the most successful businesses can come unhinged if they do not have a solid succession plan in place.” Gary Kramrisch, Partner
