At Greaves West & Ayre, we're proud of our rural roots. Agriculture has always been a mainstay of our firm and we've been providing specialist advice to generations of farmers.

Many of our Partners and staff are from farming backgrounds and are familiar with the challenges and opportunities that face the industry. This first-hand knowledge has allowed us to develop our expertise as agricultural practices have changed over the years. Whether it is farming finances, succession planning, diversification or asset protection that you need help with, you will find GWA an invaluable source of support.

We understand that agriculture is a unique business – there are not many other industries where effectively land is your livelihood. That is why we give each business the individual attention it deserves, tailoring advice and accounts preparation to your specific needs.

With decades of combined experience in accountancy and business advice for farmers, landowners and other agribusiness, we are exceptionally placed to give you the best advice. We can help with:

  • review of operating structure
  • capital tax advice and planning
  • succession planning
  • assistance with tenancy arrangements
  • help and advice with grant applications
  • contract farming agreements
  • advice on diversifying your farming business

Providing business and financial advice for landed estates is another of our key strengths. We have a wealth of experience in this area, including:

  • inheritance and other capital tax planning
  • tailoring tax-efficient ownership structures
  • grant applications
  • redundant land and buildings
  • assisting with complex VAT issues.

We are also able to provide personal finance and pension advice along with Payroll, HR and IT services.
