Abstract: This report investigates family businesses in the UK and focuses on their incidence, industrial and geographical context and their governance and performance relative to non-family businesses. The sample includes near population UK data for the period 2007 to 2009 of privately held incorporated firms (excluding listed/quoted firms) and analyses around 3 million firm-year observations. The report compares and contrasts family businesses with non-family businesses with reference to governance and performance during the current recession. Family businesses that are structured with 'family trusts/settlements' are considered as an important sub-sample of family businesses in the report. The analysis highlights important differences between family and non-family firms across a number of dimensions of governance and firm performance.
