Family Controlled Businesses

Our main client base is that of family controlled businesses. What gives us the most job satisfaction is the people we act for, we value the strong relationships we build and enjoy being a part of our individual client’s management team. Whilst annual accounts are important, we consider them almost a by-product for our main service of regular pro-active advice and support.

Running a business can be a difficult and lonely responsibility, we are here to help relieve you of some of that burden and provide a trusted and able sounding board for your problems and plans. Because of our partners vast experience, whilst a particular situation will often be a first for a client, we will have likely been there before and many times. We see what works and what does not in other businesses and can use that experience for your benefit. We often attend client board and partner meetings in a quasi non-executive director role.

We appreciate you may not have the time, resource or perhaps inclination to deal with administration or regulation. We therefore provide a business support service. Click here to find out more.
