In comparison with listed companies, family businesses are often more profitable and more resilient. Moreover, they often provide more employment. On the other hand, family businesses are also vulnerable. For example, where the relationship between the company and its shareholders or stakeholders is concerned. In addition, tension can arise between the generation of income and the retention of the capital and assets. And we haven’t yet mentioned the issue of continuity; the transfer of the organisation to the next generation can involve enough tension of its own.
Schuiteman knows this, because we ourselves were originally a family business. We are familiar with the challenges you face, but thanks to years of experience we can also offer the right solutions. Good agreements, for example, are important. You can record these agreements in a family charter. We would be happy to tell you the exact procedure and the benefits.
