Led by a highly experienced partner who also lives on a working farm, we believe our passionate team of agricultural finance experts offer a unique insight and understanding of agriculture and rural businesses.
Our experience is rooted in a wide-ranging client list that spans family farms across livestock, dairy, arable and top fruit, through to large commercial organisations in agri-business.
With agricultural accounting as our core, we have extended our expertise into related sectors, particularly with manufacturers and providers of agri-chemicals and plant machinery. We also serve clients from the wider rural community, including in leisure and tourism and property.
We are passionate about helping agricultural and rural businesses to succeed. Our team brings experience from a variety of sectors to support that, as well as considerable first-hand personal knowledge of the industry with our head of agriculture living on a mixed farm.
We pride ourselves on our insight into the agricultural sector, which we have built up over many years, but we never stop learning or looking at what issues and regulations are up ahead. Our membership and involvement with agricultural organisations such as the CLA and the Institute of Agricultural Management (IAgrM) place us at the heart of the sector and enable us to remain ahead of agricultural issues and directives.
Our Director, Joe Spencer tells you more about the conversations we were having at Lamma 2020 with rural business owners and the key talking points of budget planning and cashflow options due to the recent flooding across the UK.
Our Head of Agriculture & Rural Business, Sarah Dodds talks to two Lincolnshire farmers about the challenges they have faced since the recent flood that has affected large parts of farmland across the UK.
As a founding member of MHA, an association of independent accountancy practices, we can access more than 50 offices across the country. This network gives us a national reach that we combine with local expertise that comes from working with more than 1,000 farming and rural business clients.
We believe this places us in a unique position among accountants specialising in agriculture. We have built a team of professionals with first-hand experience of the sector, and with intimate knowledge of the financial issues and concerns facing agricultural and rural businesses every day.
We work with our clients as partners, and we are always on hand to advise when needed. As an experienced team of agricultural accountants and advisors, we offer a range of core services including accounts preparation, and payroll and taxation.
However, our specialist industry knowledge means we are also able to offer advice on a wide range of business issues:
