Pythagoras once said that numbers rule the universe. While family businesses will be the first to attest the importance of keeping tabs of numbers and figures, we’d like to share with you some of our own numbers that accumulated during the last year. We hope to be able to provide even stronger numbers next year.

Over €29 million of savings by family businesses thanks to the fiscal benefits, governance schemes and tax credits made available.

Over €12 million revenue raised fiscally for public funds.

Over 55,000 media views on social media.

Over 4,600 users on the website.

Approximately 2,000 emails received to the Family Business Office for assistance and support.

Over 1,000 persons transferred their business to family members.

15 events held throughout the year.

11 incentives and benefits for family businesses.

4 local and European memberships.

1 dedicated team.

Recognised family business can apply for a variety of incentives and benefits ranging from fiscal benefits, governance incentives, tax credits, and bank finance schemes. 

This is why we are helping family businesses.
