Landed estates and farms are special businesses, often with large capital values but relatively small cash flows, but businesses like any other with many similar concerns.

Smailes Goldie Group act for a large number of businesses in the agricultural sector, primarily in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire but also in other locations across the UK. Whilst most of our clients retain their core farming activities, many have diversified into other non-farming commercial ventures.

We draw on a wealth of commercial experience across the wider business community to assist farms and agribusinesses whilst focusing on the specialism through our longstanding membership of the UK200 Agricultural Trade Group. We are active participants in its training and Martin Overfield is currently the chair of the North East Regional Group.

Our specialist team is highly experienced and continuously trained, allowing us to take a pro-active approach to client service. The breadth of staffing available allows us to offer cost effective compliance services yet have available specialist skills for complex capital tax planning issues.

We have experience of Alternative Business Structures and the use of trusts, Self Invested Personal Pension Plans and carefully structured wills and Lasting Powers of Attorneys to retain and protect family monies. We work together with other professionals to provide a rounded solution to the particular complexities and issues facing our landed estate and agricultural clients.
