Farms and landed estates have not just held their value in recent years against a background of farming losses, changes, and uncertainty, they have actually increased in value.

Such a scenario makes the quantum of potential tax liability that is at risk even greater.

In addition, the HMRC enquiry machine has been aggressive, and many of the elderly farming community have not taken advice.

Against this background farming business families have fought amongst themselves and prevented an objective APR/BPR holistic approach within the family farming businesses.

Likewise with the move to ‘farming for the environment’ HMRC have not updated some of their guidance which can make some potential claims for APR and BPR vulnerable.

This new seminar will set out practical solutions to these problems and is suitable for accountants, tax advisers, land agents and solicitors.
