Whether you are farming in England, Wales or Scotland, this
allows us to offer practical, money-saving, pro-active advice on
how these affect the day-to-day and strategic management of farm
The paper work that farmers are now required to produce is
not only time-consuming but can be complex. Our aim is to
remove the burden of complicated legislation and regulation by
offering practical advice on compliance which allows businesses to
operate efficiently and grow without being held back by red tape.
We also want to help our clients to maximise the amount of grants
and subsidies payable to their business.
Our Land Research Group produces a regulation tracker which
keeps us and our clients up to date with the latest legislative
changes. This expertise, combined with our team's experience of
lobbying and working with a wide variety of farms in areas all over
the country, equips us to deliver practical advice across a range
of specialisations. Our regulation tracker allows us to advise our
clients on the impact of legislative changes, new grants and
subsidies or changes to existing ones as soon as possible, often
before the change is in place.
All our advisors are also expert in the operation and
application of the Single Farm Payment Scheme and have been at the
forefront of the industry representing and promoting the interest
of farmers and landowners to the policy makers in Whitehall,
Holyrood and Brussels.
Specific items of legislation and regulation affecting rural
businesses that we deal with on a day-to-day basis include the
Single Farm Payment Scheme, milk quotas, cross-compliance rules,
Environmental Impact Assessment regulations, the Habitat Directive,
Nitrate Vulnerable Zone regulations, health and safety, the
Pesticides Directive, waste management licensing regulations and
