farm budgets & cashflow projections

We assist with business planning, for banking purposes or for rental / contract farming tenders, with each consultant able to provide this service 

integrated land management plans

Three of our partners have the Farm Business Adviser Accreditation Scotland Scheme (FBAASS) qualifications meaning we can carry out ILMPs for any eligible farming business.

The grant aided scheme is useful for reviewing your business performance, be it financially, physically or environmentally, and for allowing a fresh pair of eyes to appraise your business.  This can include an option appraisal if looking to change your farming policy.

 It can also examine more specific aspects of your business, such as business efficiency, potential for organics or woodland, soil management and succession.

Landlord / tenant matters

The firm advises both landlords and tenants on practical and professional matters relating to Agricultural Holdings Legislation in Scotland. This can be ongoing or a one off arrangement, and can include rent reviews, letting your farm, tenancy negotiations, advice on the type of tenancy to be used and waygoing valuations. Business plans for rental tenders can also be prepared.

NOTE: Current topical projects include the Tenants Amnesty, whereby we are preparing a schedule of improvements and accompanying documentation (maps, photographic records) to support tenants improvements. The deadline for lodging these with landlords has been extended to 12th December 2020.
