As part of the UK200 Agricultural Trade Group, Smailes Goldie specialises in supporting farming and rural businesses.

And with the pressures on agriculture at an all time high, whether you are a traditional farmer, one looking to diversify or a rural enterprise, it is more vital than ever to have an accountant who understands this sector.

Our team of experts, which includes three of our partners supported by qualified managers, understands the challenges facing the rural economy and recognises that farms are special businesses that need a specialist approach.  They also draw on a wealth of commercial experience across the wider business community.

Our impressive portfolio of clients includes family-owned farms, tenanted holdings, landed estates and SME agri-businesses.  We help them with a full range of matters including:

  • Strategic business planning
  • Diversifications, including the current trend for renewable energy projects
  • Funding
  • Managing and maximising the profitability of land
  • Alternative Business Structures
  • Capital Taxes Planning
  • Investments
  • Taxation
  • Specialist Trust and Estate work
  • Succession Planning and Wealth Retention

We also offer our clients independent financial advice through our sister company Smailes Goldie Financial Management Limited.  Their trained advisers help with matters such as self-invested personal pension plans, to enable long-term savings to be used within the business, as well as business and personal protection.

We can introduce you to trusted solicitors and we will work with them to advise on Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney to ensure that family monies are retained and protected.

We are also able to help with the day-to-day accounting needs of a business, for instance VAT returns (including submission) and provide a full payroll service through our specialist division SG Outsourcing, leaving you free to concentrate on your business.
