ABERDEEN accountancy firm Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB), is building on the support it already provides to family businesses by establishing a specialist team dedicated to the sector.
AAB currently works with over 1,000 family businesses, which totals 75% of the firm’s SME client base.
This dedicated team has been formed to support AAB’s client base with a central hub of knowledge and experience of the complex financial and business advisory needs of families, both business and personal.
The team will be headed up by the firm’s Edinburgh managing partner Lyn Calder, who will be supported by a team of nine specialists from across the firm including tax directors Lynn Wilson and Stuart Petrie, who are based in Aberdeen.
Lyn said: “At AAB our very first client was a family business and for over 30 years we have continued to work with family businesses across multiple sectors ranging from fishing to oil and gas, and from hospitality to construction and property. As a result, we have extensive knowledge and experience in this space across the firm.
“Recognising that family businesses are unique, and that they require a considered approach, coupled with a different way of thinking, we are delighted to have established our core family business team.”
