Farm business transfers

Helping you with the legal and administrative matters inherent in changing a business.

Whether a farm is changing hands, a tenancy comes to an end or a contract farming agreement is being set up, this change of interests throws up a wide range of legal and administrative issues that need to be addressed.

These can include the transfer of Single Payment Scheme Entitlements, Environmental Stewardship Schemes and the various rights that go with operating a farm, such as irrigation licences. There might be staffing issues, the business assets or stocks may need to be valued and there could be tax matters to consider.

At what is always an extremely busy and stressful time, our team of experts can help you identify what needs to be tackled, and we can take on much of the administrative legwork.
