Family Business Advisory

BDO offers an unmatched depth of experience in providing independent family business advice in Guernsey.

We've been working with Guernsey family businesses for over a century and count first generation to multi-generation enterprises among our clients. Many of our clients operate businesses solely in the Channel Islands. We also advise UK and overseas businesses on relocating or developing a presence in Guernsey and Guernsey businesses that are planning to operate in the UK or further afield.

Whether your goals are local to Guernsey or extend beyond the islands, our professionals marry their accounting expertise with a focus on getting to know the family and family member priorities, needs and personal aspirations well. This in turn enables us to provide you with an approach that works with your business ambitions.

No two family businesses are the same. And nor are the commercial or competitive pressures they face.This is why at BDO we tailor our approach to each of our client relationships.
