Experts in our field as you are in yours.


Specialist agricultural and rural accountants providing support and business advice.

We act for a range of landed estates, farming, horticultural and rural businesses, advising them on a range of issues affecting their businesses whether it is trusts, VAT, mixed farming, diversification, treatment of expenditure on farm and other commercial buildings, rental portfolios or the use of companies.


We understand that the rural and agriculture sector is a specialist sector, having unique practices and conventions, making rural enterprises unlike other commercial enterprises.  Our approach to each client is therefore tailored to recognise your unique circumstances. This is why we always build up an in-depth knowledge of your business so that we can tailor our services accordingly and add value wherever possible.

Our national rural and agriculture team has a genuine knowledge of the sector and the relevant experience to help.  We have a thorough understanding of the business structures under which rural and agriculture businesses operate, whether that is company, partnership, sole trader or a trust structure.  We understand the practicalities of farming and are at home speaking with, advising and acting for our clients, tailoring our approach to meet individual circumstances.


Our team has a wealth of experience in advising large rural estates, ensuring that traditional values are maintained yet income is optimised, development opportunities are recognised and core assets are preserved for the long term.
