Specialist Services
for Farming & Agriculture Sector

With our experience and sector knowledge we will add value to your farm or agricultural business and work with you to achieve your business and personal goals.


Annual Taxes

Using the correct structure will always help but there are more industry specific issues to address that affect your annual tax liabilities. Through working in the sector, we have expert knowledge of these, which we use for our clients’ benefit to reduce their tax burden.

These areas include:

  • Equipment purchases including timing of acquisitions to maximise relief
  • Tax related issues concerning farmhouses and their running costs
  • Livestock ‘herd basis’ tax elections and tax efficient stock valuations
  • VAT advice, including advice on VAT partial exemption
  • Advising on employee accommodation issues
Capital Taxes

The structures used to conduct business will impact on the capital taxes position of the owner. To reduce the impact following a death or the sale of property, it is important to know what reliefs are available to you, which ones you are eligible for and, importantly, those that you could claim. Our team will ensure you are in the most beneficial tax position.

Areas where we regularly help include:

  • The specialist areas of inheritance tax, agricultural and business property relief
  • Capital gains tax planning, including Business Asset Disposal relief (formerly known as Entrepreneur’s Relief).
  • Tax efficient structures for businesses, including diversification projects
  • Stamp duty and land taxes
  • Trusts advice and compliance
Commercial Issues

Commercial considerations are vital if your venture is to be successful. A well thought out and documented business plan not only helps you to consider your investment of time and funds in your business venture.

Typical areas where we help include:

  • Farm succession, planning for retirement and family wealth protection and maximising available reliefs
  • Strategic business and tax advice
  • Business structures and restructuring
  • Advice on accounting software; including Cloud Accounting and Making Tax Digital compliance
  • Financing, budgeting & cash flow
