Specialist family business accountants

Family businesses are the cornerstone of the British economy and each one is different.

Our family business accountants work with a large number of family businesses and understand the sometimes conflicting dynamics that can impact both the family and the business. In recent years we have worked closely with the International Centre for Families in Business, and together with the Centre have developed a unique programme of training in family business dynamics for our partners.
