Woodhouse is an Independent and Accredited (FBA) Family business specialist who recognise that businesses are more than legal instruments and tax planning, they are about people and often our own family.
As accredited family business specialists we provide confidential services designed to ensure a fair and orderly transfer of wealth, ownership and management from one generation to the next. Family dynamics are complex and, when a business is involved, they are often the underlying cause of issues that create tension and friction. If left unchecked, these issues may develop to the point where they pose a risk to the future of the business.
Fortunately, many of these disruptions are predictable. This means they are also preventable, but only if you act decisively to take the proper steps.
With the right governance framework, you can protect the income stream and assets that have taken years to build. You can also keep your family relationships intact, rather than allowing pressures to build that may tear them apart.
Think about the particular circumstances of your business. Is it surrounded by an extended family network with multiple individuals claiming their slices of the cake? Are there intergenerational differences of opinion about values, new ideas or acceptable levels of commercial risk? Arguments about succession plans?
In addition, you also need to consider how to protect the business from family events that aren’t so easy to predict. These include, for example, sudden death, divorce, disease, disability or the fallout from personal feuds nobody will discuss.
Family business consulting gives you the certainty and clarity you need. It is an impartial, systematic process that considers both legal and human perspectives and develops clearly defined approaches to preventing future problems and resolving current ones.
Performance consulting and family business coaching services for business managers and owners. While we work with a range of businesses, our speciality is helping family businesses resolve the tension that exists between ‘family’ and ‘business’.
