How our experts can help you

Asset purchase and financing negotiations, profitability fluctuations and expansion are issues that will affect agribusinesses of all sizes. Considering the tax implications of individual scenarios and proactively assisting in planning for both the short and longer-term is an aspect of our day-to-day work that provides invaluable support for our clients.

  • Tax efficient structures for businesses, including diversification projects;
  • Farmers averaging and income tax loss relief claims;
  • VAT advice, including partial exemption, opting to tax and development projects;
  • Planning for succession, including advising on the availability of Agricultural Property Relief (APR) and Business Property Relief (BPR);
  • Capital gains tax planning, including Business Asset Disposal relief (formerly known as Entrepreneur’s Relief)
  • Livestock ‘herd basis’ tax elections; and
  • Business planning and cash flow models.

Our network of contacts in the sector, including the Country Land and Business Association (CLA) and Scottish Land & Estates (SL&E), means we are kept up-to-date with important issues and are able to give clients an inside track on the development and implementation of forthcoming legislation and its potential impact on their business.
