Owner Managed Businesses (OMBs)

We understand the importance of managing the financial affairs of family and privately-owned businesses. This is why we work with our clients, in many cases from the formation of their business, to provide them with proactive, timely and practical advice to address the opportunities and challenges they face.

Our focus is on building long standing relationships with our clients by gaining a detailed knowledge of their businesses, developing personal relationships and offering a flexible, pragmatic approach to their on-going requirements.

We support Owner Managed Businesses with a wide range of services which include:

Advice on the type of structure, for example partnership, limited liability partnership (LLP) or limited company to best serve your business from tax, compliance and practical perspectives. Where a limited company or LLP is chosen we can assist with the formation and advise on ownership structures.
