Estates

Accounting for landowners

Our firm has a long established reputation for expertise in accounting advice and tax planning for landowners.

Our approach recognises the unique features of a family land and investment enterprise and we work closely with other family advisers to achieve practical solutions to the many issues involved.

We advise on all areas of accounting and tax planning, for revenue taxes, indirect taxes such as VAT and also for capital taxes such as capital gains tax and inheritance tax. We also advise on succession issues, business structures, trusts, companies and long term planning.

We provide these services through a specialist team who deal exclusively with landed estate clients. This is important as many of the planning and tax issues are specialist and it is essential to consider all aspects of the family and its affairs in much of our work.

Landed estates often include substantial agricultural enterprises, or diversifications based on agricultural businesses. Our expertise in this area is often critical in advising on these aspects.

We believe that our integrated, specialist approach enables us to give the best advice, taking into account the long term objectives and aspirations of the family members.
