Family business: questions for the family: checklist

This checklist sets out a list of questions which family members might be asked to address as part of the process of drawing up either a strategic plan for a family business, a shareholders' agreement, a family charter or a family constitution. Not all questions will be relevant or appropriate for every family or every family business.

For details of the different governance structures which a family business can adopt, see Practice note, Family business governance.
