Family succession

Deminor NXT > Services > Transactions > Family succession

The strength of a family business is the close relationship between shareholders, directors and management. They are usually family members who work well together across generations.


The greatest desire of many entrepreneurs is to pass on the family business to the next generation, who will take ownership and management of the business. An alternative is selling the business to a third party or retaining family control of the business through outside management..

Questions you may be asking yourself

When am I ready to transfer/take over the business?
When is the best time to start the family succession?
What are the main steps? And how quickly does such a family succession proceed?
What are the best financial, legal and tax scenarios?
Can I remain active after the transfer?
How do I arrange a fair division between my children if they are not all active in the company?
Can I transfer the business for tax purposes, but still retain control?

At deminor NXT we have more than 30 years of experience with family businesses. We know how important a succession process can be, both for the business and the family. We guide all parties involved, entrepreneurs and successors, to make the right choices – according to the appropriate timing, with thorough preparation and an agreed step-by-step plan.

Our guidance covers all facets of the process: emotional, organisational, financial, and legal tax. Indeed, it is crucial to clear the emotional path before we deal with the aforementioned aspects.
