The State of the Nation: the UK Family Business Sector 2018-19

The family business sector is vital to the UK economy. Throughout every region and industrial sector, family-owned businesses are a driving force, employing millions of people, generating more than a quarter of the UK’s annual GDP, and contributing over 20 percent of its total tax revenues each year.

This report presents the most up-to-date evidence on the UK’s family business sector. It investigates the characteristics of family firms – their size, structure, and concentration across different industries – and measures their total economic contribution to UK GDP, employment, and taxes, nationally, regionally, and across each industrial sector.
