Family Business Accountants

When you grow and run a family business, you do need a considered business approach and a different way of thinking. 

In the UK, the number of family-run businesses are 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.

This is where accountants for family 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.
