Transfer of family business

Sometimes, entrepreneurs want to transfer their company to one or more of their children. A transfer within the family like this can be quite stressful:

  • Do you have enough confidence in your children?
  • Do you see in them the entrepreneur that you were at their age?
  • Do they take their responsibility or do they know that they can always rely on you?
  • Are others not being overlooked (both within the organisation and within the family)?
  • What will be the effects on the organisation?

Valuation of the family business

A key aspects of a transfer within the family is the valuation of the business. Particularly in the case of there being a number of children, the valuation within the framework of the transfer must be a reflection of (expected) returns and risks at market level.
