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.
Ballards LLP really understands the farming business, they speak my language and they know what's going on in the sector. Their advice on diversifying has been great for me. With Ballards LLP, I don't have to worry about the everyday financial compliance and I can concentrate on, with their assistance, growing the farm and pushing forward with my plans.
Having worked with many accountants, Ballards LLP are very good, I get a personal service, and honest advice with no jargon. I particularly appreciate their pre-planning meetings which minimises the GP's time, their support is invaluable and I have on many occasions recommended them.
Ballards LLP have really looked after our business, it was with their help that we acquired the funding to develop our business, and with their ongoing support we keep track of the business financially so we know where we're going.
We have had a very long association with Ballards LLP who have provided our accounting services to us for over 15 years. It has been very reassuring to have such a professional organisation advising with our accounting and development requirements. I really can't recommend Ballards LLP highly enough.
