• Family Business

When business is personal

Family businesses of all sizes and types dominate the private sector in British Virgin Islands. Some of the most successful and professional companies - many of them household names - are family-owned and run.

Developed from your vision and hard work, these businesses take on a unique character as other family members enter the business. At best, such an environment can be inspiring and motivating. At worst, it can result in routine business decisions becoming clouded by emotion.

At BDO we have more than 20 years' experience and an in-depth understanding of the challenges facing family business. We can work closely with you to share this knowledge and experience and help balance the needs of the family with those of the business.

We offer you professional advice, business solutions and ideas tailored to your needs - built on a relationship of trust and mutual understanding. We work very closely with our clients to enable you to meet your challenges and find the most positive way forward. By facilitating discussion between the family and the business, and helping to clarify the boundaries of each, we can help your family business better understand the roles, responsibilities and privileges of all involved.
