Family Business

Family businesses account for up to 80% of businesses worldwide. Every family business is different, and so are the issues they encounter. Which means they need more than just an accountant. That’s where we come in.

In the course of life, family owned enterprises need someone that works with them, through all of those unique circumstances; someone that understands them and their business, and knows that to people in family business, it’s about more than just the bottom line.

  • An advisor
  • A planner
  • A counsellor
  • A mediator
  • A mentor

We’re a team of seasoned family business specialists. We understand business. But more importantly, we’re familiar with the issues that family businesses face. We have over 25 years experience dealing with precisely the issues that make family businesses so unique.

We recognise that in family business, work and family life are often inseparable. Which is why our approach is holistic. Of course you need someone to help you with your taxation and other compliance matters. But what about everything else?

  • Who will take over when you retire?
  • How do you resolve disputes?
  • How do you remunerate family members so that everyone is treated fairly?
  • If you want to leave the business, what’s the best way, and how do you get the most for it?
  • What’s the best structure for your business?
  • How can you make sure there’s enough money to achieve your business and personal goals?
  • How can you free up more time to spend with family and friends?

We understand what family business is all about. Our approach is personal. We get to know you and your business. We look at things differently, and we create solutions.
