Specialists in accounting for Agriculture

From organic to industrial, cattle to grain, milking to market, from family to corporate from the hills to the lowlands, from silage to slaughter, from cropping to breeding. We’re with you.

As agriculture specialists, we understand the challenges that farming presents. We have a dedicated team of agricultural specialists, many of whom have an agricultural background.

We act for around 2,000 farming businesses and our clients like our no nonsense, straight talking approach.

They also like the fact that we have a detailed knowledge of agriculture and the unique challenges that working in farming presents. We know where to look for any available tax savings, and how farming businesses can plan for their financial futures in a tax effective way.

Dairy Farming

Our expertise and office locations make us the ideal partner to help dairy farmers meet the challenges of this ever changing environment.

Pig Farming

Although not supported by European subsidies, our extensive knowledge of the cycles and volatility affecting the UK pig sector enable us to support pig farmers

Broiler production

Many producers have made capital investments in recent years to upgrade and expand their operations. Detailed forward planning can help minimise tax burdens and we’re here to help.

Free Range Eggs

With significant up front investment required, we can help you to ensure projects are tax efficient, keeping money within the business. We understand this complex market and can help plan for fluctuating profits and investment requirements.

Beef, sheep and upland

We’ve looked after many of our clients for generations and understand that Environmental Schemes, especially in the more marginal areas, are becoming increasingly important in underpinning the profitability of livestock businesses.


Dramatic volatility in the price of grain and arable crops coupled with ever rising input costs, making budgeting and planning for arable farms very difficult. With the increased volatility in world grain prices and the levels of capital machinery required, detailed forward planning is always essential to minimise future tax liabilities.


We have experience in advising clients on a number of wind, anaerobic digestion and water projects ranging in size from small community projects to large individual investments. We can help maximise tax relief,  advise on investment, prepare business plans to help finance your projects and assess their viability, and advise on profitability; from the supply of feedstock to renewables projects.

Garden Centres

Our work for those who have diversified into the Garden Centre market takes into account some key areas of accountancy and planning that can help save you money.
