The Legacy of UK Family Businesses

5 reasons to celebrate our family businesses


As a family business Reays are well aware of how easily these businesses are overlooked, but do we know just how much they contribute to the UK economy as a whole, as well as how influencial these small, medium and larger family businesses they are when it comes to new innovative ideas and strategies.


A few facts about the influences generated by UK family businesses.

  • 85% of UK businesses are family owned

  • UK family businesses employ over 13.2 million people

  • Our family businesses generate in the region of a 1/4 of the UKs GDP

  • As a family business you are more committed to the local community

  • The UKs family business aid in keeping independent and local businesses thriving


It's important that we support our local and national Uk Businesses, as they in turn will support everyone else.
