Does family business equal small business?

Not at all.

Did you know that some of Australia’s longest surviving and biggest businesses are family owned? It’s a common misconception that when people think ‘family business’, they automatically think ‘small business’. No doubt, you have heard of the Packer’s, the Murdoch’s and the Myer’s. These are all well-known Australian family owned businesses.

In Australia, family businesses make up 70% of all Australian businesses, employing 50% of the workforce.
