Family business accountants
At Rouse Partners we have a specialist Family Business Team with the experience and knowledge to help family businesses continue from one generation to the next.
In the UK, approximately 75% of all businesses in the private sector are family owned and they employ 9.2 million people.* Growing and running a family business can present many unique family business challenges and requires a considered business approach and way of thinking.
Many family businesses do not have succession plans in place, and a number do not survive the handover to later generations, therefore specialist advice, and planning can be crucial.
Experienced accountants for family businesses
Our team can assist family businesses through the process of succession, managing conflict and disagreements, improving communication and governance and putting appropriate measures in place to ensure fair returns to all family members. We also work with the next generation, educating and preparing them for the future so that your family business can continue successfully for years to come.
