Agriculture and farming

These are turbulent times and farmers are experiencing many rapid developments in the world of agriculture. They must keep pace with changes in common agricultural policy, the impact of planning and environmental policy and reforms to the law of agricultural holdings. There is also the ever present need to arrange their affairs in a tax efficient manner.

We are recognised as one of the leading agricultural practices in the North of England. We advise in respect of the full range of issues confronting the farming community today including:

  • Acquisition of land and farms
  • Agricultural holdings
  • Capital gains tax planning
  • Commercial contracts
  • Co-operative ventures
  • Diversification
  • Environmental law
  • Farm business tenancies
  • Farm companies
  • Inheritance tax planning
  • Insolvency
  • Letting to agricultural workers
  • Mines and minerals
  • Options to developers
  • Partnerships
  • Planning
  • Rights of way
  • Sales of land and farms
  • Wind farms
