This is a fully integrated financial accounting system, which
incorporates rent and tenancy details with electronic banking
systems and Microsoft Office suite for reporting and

Working in close liaison with our Accounting Department, our
team of taxation specialists can deal with all farm, property and
personal tax issues.
We can also take the strain out of dealing with tax on let land
and buildings and farming businesses. Our clients are sometimes

family trusts alongside disposals of land, buildings, chattels and
other assets. We work closely with our Minerals and Waste
Department on taxation issues relating to mineral royalties. We
also specialise in compulsory purchase, maximising your private
residence exemption and inheritance tax mitigation.
