We understand the issues facing farmers today. We recognise that farming is not just a business to our clients, but a way of life. Unlike many other commercial enterprises, it is a specialist business with unique practices and conventions.
Farming is a major industry in the South West and the firm has been deeply involved with a range of farming clients for many years. Paul Smith leads our agricultural section and accounting services for farmers who manage many thousands of acres in Cornwall, Devon and Dorset.
Paul is hugely experienced in ensuring that all of our farmers are aware of the range of agricultural grants and tax breaks that are available to them. We have strong links with specialist agricultural consultants, to whom referrals can be made when required, as well as links with land agents.
We can advise on business strategy and planning and assist with contract farming and share farming arrangements, together with succession planning strategies. We are experts on inheritance tax and capital tax planning opportunities for farms and estates.
We also understand the need for diversification in farm activities and can advise and assist in cases where this is useful.
Whether you operate a small farm or a large and diversified estate, we have the expertise to help you. For more information on how we can help your agricultural business, please call us.
