Frank O’Neill - EY Ireland Tax Partner & EY Private Family Business Lead
We in EY understand that family businesses have unique needs in comparison to corporate business operations. In the first of our series of EY Private Family Business webinars, we discuss the Life Cycle of the Family Business and focus on some of these unique family business needs:
1. Succession or Exit: We discuss the various decisions a family business need to make when deciding the future of the business - advance planning is key.
2. Governance: When business-owning families grow significantly in number and complexity, a good plan for succession becomes an imperative. This requires implementation of a governance framework
that enables the best decisions to support a sustainable future of the family enterprise
3. Next Generational Stories: Drawing on practical experience and issues which highlight the importance of advance planning
