Specialist agriculture accountants
At Hawsons our dedicated team of specialist agriculture accountants understands that farming isn’t just a business; it’s a way of life.
The rural and agriculture sector is a specialist sector, with unique practices and conventions. Our accountants act for a significant number of arable farms and assist farming families in many matters specific to agriculture and farming. This includes tax, will planning and succession planning.
Our accountants have been able to assist our farming clients in adding value to their businesses. We have advised on the financial and tax consequences of property development, green technologies and capital allowance planning. In particular, we can assist in the area of capital tax planning. This is a significant issue for farmers following the increase in land values and the availability of development opportunities.
