Advisors for the Farming Sector

Our experience in the agricultural sector is unrivalled in Shropshire, Staffordshire,  Herefordshire and across Wales.

We now act for more than 1000 farmers - predominantly across Shropshire and Mid-Wales, with some clients from much further afield who come to us because of our specific expertise in this industry.


A Dedicated Team for Your Farm

Many of our agricultural team come from farming families themselves and therefore understand the needs of the farmer. We regularly speak at seminars in the community dealing with topical issues relating to farming and the countryside.

As a firm, we have developed links with other professionals in the agricultural sector including farm secretaries, NFU groups, Business Link, Chartered Surveyors, Solicitors etc, to offer advice and support from a position of knowledge.

In particular, you’ll benefit from our experience in:

  •     Business planning
  •     Wealth issues - including wills
  •     Capital Tax planning
  •     General practical advice


Our approach to land-based business recognises their often unique circumstances, family/employee relationships, and the complexities of EU subsidies, grants and quotas.

Agriculture tends to be capital intensive, so the approach to funding is important. Considerations of succession and capital tax planning (both inheritance tax and capital gains tax) may be vital.

As well as the Partner responsible for looking after your business, you’ll have a dedicated manager and a team backed up by our tax experts on hand to advise on the more complex areas of tax planning affecting landowners.
