Family businesses

Running a family business brings a unique set of challenges as well as many opportunities to create and sustain a legacy for future generations.

At Clayton & Brewill we understand family businesses – a large proportion of our clients are family owned and run. We work closely with many family businesses, of all shapes and sizes, from start-ups to those in their fifth and six generation. Clayton & Brewill clients trust us to help them identify the best route for both the business and the family.

Leading Adviser to family businesses

Highly commended as a leading adviser to family businesses in the Midlands Family Business Awards, we are known for our supportive and flexible approach.

In addition to all the usual accountancy, tax planning and bookkeeping services, the family business specialists at Clayton & Brewill also play a valuable role in supporting family members with their discussions and decision-making, providing a valuable – and neutral – sounding board.

For many of our family business clients we act effectively as a ‘virtual finance director‘, helping the owners and the family to plan, make decisions and keep a clear handle on their cash flow and financial position. We are able to advise our family business clients across all their accountancy related matters, building a strong and loyal relationship.

Where the family business has an in-house FD, we support them in a more straightforward accountancy role, ensuring management accounts are prepared on time, giving proactive advice on the financial considerations and ensuring that related matters such as payroll is handled smoothly and efficiently.
