With an increasing range of opportunities open to farms and estates, the need for incisive advice has never been so important. We will help you take advantage of these circumstances and tailor our advice to meet your objectives.

Our Services include:

BUSINESS RESTRUCTURING, TAX & STRATEGIC PLANNING

We provide sound practical advice in conjunction with other professional advisors to ensure our client’s businesses are structured as efficiently as possible, be it with regards to the management structure or tax issues, ranging from VAT to capital taxes. We advise clients on succession planning and are able to provide the required valuations to inform decision making.

LANDLORD & TENANT

We understand the importance of maintaining a good relationship between landlord and tenant across the agricultural, commercial and residential sectors. This understanding forms the basis of our approach in dealing with matters such as Heads of Terms negotiations, rent reviews, compensation claims and end of tenancy issues.

ESTATE APPRAISAL

We can assist and guide you to ensure you make the most of your opportunities and that your business is running as efficiently as possible. We are able to produce an Estate Appraisal that will scrutinise the management structure and procedures in place and highlight how existing income streams can be improved and identify new opportunities to take your business forward.

DIVERSIFICATION & RENEWABLE ENERGY

We are able to undertake a diversification audit and identify the alternative uses that will fit within your vision of the property, as well as provide a return on your investment. We will work with other stakeholders to deliver your scheme which might include planning, feasibility assessments, and project management.

FORESTRY MANAGEMENT

Our experience covers the management of commercial forestry and amenity woodlands and we will advise you on topics ranging from valuation, timber sales, grant schemes, planting and maintenance, sporting rights and purchases and sales.

BUSINESS PLANS AND PROJECT ANALYSIS & MANAGEMENT

Careful planning and budgeting for an existing business or for a new project is vital to avoid any unforeseen costs that could turn a particular venture from a sound investment into a liability. We have experience in producing business plans that look in depth into the various aspects of a business proposal including completing cashflow budgets, measuring investment returns and producing sensitivity analyses.

GRANT SCHEMES

With the changes and introduction of NELMS, careful consideration will be needed when applying for a new grant scheme to replace an expiring former Agri-Environment scheme.
