Farms and Estates

With the uncertainties surrounding the farming industry and the constant changes in the current legislation you need an accountant who can keep up with changes and really understand the implications for the rural community and you.

We can offer a full range of accountancy services tailored to meet your needs along with strategic tax planning advice on areas such as VAT, capital allowances, maximising repair claims, restructuring your business, capital gains tax and inheritance tax.

We understand that being able to keep the family farm in the family is very important and therefore Inheritance Tax is a key concern for many farms. The two key reliefs available to farms to ensure this protection for your family are Agricultural Property Relief and Business Property Relief. Many accountants who do not specialise in this area can miss opportunities to maximise these reliefs if they do not consider a business to conform to their understanding of farming. There are many ways to utilise these reliefs and we are always seeking to provide the right advice for our clients without missing opportunities to save tax when they are available. With a large amount of rural land coming up for development minimising capital gains tax is also a key point for many farmers and correct advice and timing is essential. We can explain the different options and planning available including advice on entrepreneurs relief, holdover relief and rollover relief.

We are proud of our history dealing with farming and rural clients and ensuring that they get the best possible advice. As a family run firm we understand the importance of the farming family and the need to keep the family farm protected.

Julie Butler has written numerous articles on tax and business planning for the rural community along with her book Tax Planning for Farm & Land Diversification. She also lectures extensively on issues surrounding this sector meaning as a firm we are always up to date with any changes. Click here
