If your family are not interested in taking over your business, have you considered selling the business to your management team?
In a typical management buy- out the existing management would set up a new company which would then raise finance to acquire your current business, so this is essentially the same as a sale to a third party, except the management team will know quite a bit about your business already. They would still nevertheless need to carry out due diligence and require you to provide warranties and indemnities as in a third party sale.
An increasingly popular alternative to the classic management buy-out referred to above would be to sell your company to an Employee Share Ownership Trust (ESOT).
