As one of the UK’s leading accountancy firms, haysmacintyre understands the importance of building long lasting relationships built on trust and open communication.
We are proud to count a significant number of family offices and high net worth individuals amongst our client base and we work with them on transactional, taxation and compliance engagements. These include M&A assignments (financial due diligence, share valuations and exit strategy planning), provision of personal and business taxation advice and ongoing compliance such as statutory accounts preparation, completion of tax returns and audit. Our services lines feed into our specialist corporate sector teams, ensuring that our clients have a team that is knowledgeable of the key risks facing that particular sector.
Our key corporate sectors are: property, financial services, hospitality and creative media & technology. These sectors are subject to substantial and increasing private investment activity, making us ideally placed to work with family offices on fulfilment of their corporate strategy, while being able to provide quality advice on any associated personal or internal matters that may arise.
We offer a fully integrated range of services. Our specialist teams are typically overseen by one client engagement partner, meaning our clients benefit from a combination of high-quality, specialist expertise and a unified view of their affairs and commercial goals.

KPMG’s Family Office Services team understand that every family is different so we provide bespoke advice to establish and operate your family office and grow and preserve your energy.
No two families are identical and the same goes for family offices. But whatever your family office does, there can come a time when it needs some external support.
The way KPMG offers that support stems from one key insight: that the term “family office” is just a flexible concept. And so we believe that a one-size-fits-all approach to family offices cannot work. Whether you are thinking about creating a family office for the first time or involved with a significant and long-established operation, every case requires a unique approach. That is why, rather than having a set list of family office products, we focus on having a team of specialists who draw on the wider experience from all areas of our global practice to suit each client and their challenges.
Our family office clients are currently drawing on the following areas of specialist expertise:
Whatever your family office’s needs, we have people who can help.
