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.

As specialist family business accountants, Clayton & Brewill understands what family businesses need – 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.

Specialist advice for 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. We can support business owners and their families to plan, make decisions and keep a clear handle on their cash flow and financial position. .

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.
