Rural Seminar with Galbraith & Turcan Connell

The focus for many in recent times has been the fluctuations of input costs and commodity prices. However, we continue to face economic challenges not seen for a generation, coupled with new rules, regulations, and legislation in all areas of business which continue to evolve. 

Through a panel discussion our speakers will consider these key topics:

  • Making provisions for succession planning outwith the family business
  • When families fall out – pitfalls for agricultural clients
  • Rural update with a focus on subsidies

Who should attend? Anyone involved in agricultural or associated business sectors and landowners who want the latest information on how best to manage their rural business assets or who are considering succession plans.

There will be a chance to put questions to our expert panel as well as an opportunity to network within an informal environment.
