Family strategy and family business strategy

As a family business, you face a special challenge: you must find a strategy that meets your business ambitions and that fits your family's standards and values. We can help you in this.

Business versus family

Family businesses deal with some of the same issues as publicly listed corporations: What markets offer the highest potential? What is the best strategy for internationalisation? What are the legal risks? But for you, the answers to these questions are about more than just business. They must also fit your family's identity.

Business transformation

In order to stay ahead of the competition, family companies must undergo constant improvements. They regularly find themselves forced to refine their strategy, which often means adjusting their business model. One example here would be the need to merge departments, or even divest business units. We can help you with a custom-tailored business model.

Integrated enterprise

Transformation of the business model is crucial in turning companies into integrated enterprises. An integrated enterprise has a consistent operational policy and process flow. In addition to this, a company of this kind has strong central management with excellent local execution. The integrated business model can be further reinforced with a competitive cost base and tax burden.

How we can help you

The specialists at PwC in the area of business transformation originate from the Advisory, Tax, Transfer Pricing and Legal departments so they can provide you integrated service. First off, we evaluate your current organisation based on objective criteria. This allows us to identify your strong points and the areas for potential improvement. This gives you a clear picture of your opportunities and challenges.

Next, we design a new organisational structure in collaboration with you, with clearly defined roles and responsibilities. We help you optimise your processes, communications and tax situation. In this, we take into account your objectives, the competencies of your staff, the relevant laws and regulations, your business culture and the maturity of your organisation. The result: a concrete plan for sustainable growth.
