Selling within a Family
Entrepreneurs often like to maintain family ownership of their businesses, to ensure that the name, reputation and returns are passed on to future generations.
Mercer & Hole have a wealth of experience of planning such strategies, and act for numerous family empires which are now run by the children and grandchildren of the founders.
A Trust can safeguard the business, so that its returns will be enjoyed for many generations to come. Mercer & Hole are one of the leading trust advisors in the UK.
There are a number of important issues to consider – valuations, tax implications, control over shares, safeguarding jobs and many others. Please do talk to us if you are considering this route.
