Our Specialist Sectors
Agriculture

Since Ellacotts started, we have provided specialist advice to the agricultural community.

Today we are a market leader in the sector, representing the interests of a large number of farmers, landowners and other agri-businesses, both regionally and nationally.

Many of our partners and staff are from farming backgrounds. We understand the challenges and opportunities that face the farming industry. These strong links have allowed us to develop our expertise in all aspects of finance and taxation relating to farming, including:

Agricultural IT

We promote the use of specialist agricultural bookkeeping software from a range of providers.

When clients buy the software through us we are able to achieve discounts as a result of the relationships we have with the software providers. We work together with our clients and the software providers to achieve a bespoke, efficient and effective solution.

We are always on the lookout for new developments that will enable both our clients and us to work smarter, making compliance work more straightforward, and freeing up more time to focus on both the present and the future.

Wealth Planning

Ellacotts Wealth Planning Ltd provides effective financial and tax planning to help balance your long-term financial goals with current and future cash needs. We can help you protect and manage the wealth that you have invested in your farm business and/or private portfolio.

Independent advice can help you make the most of your money and investments. Pension, investment and protection markets are complex but with professional advice you can develop strategies which precisely meet your needs.

Property & Land Transaction Planning

Tax charges on property transactions can be substantial and, without planning, triggered unintentionally. There is the potential to save significant amounts of tax with the right planning.

We can provide you with comprehensive guidance on the purchase, sale and development of property and land. We have a team dedicated to property matters to ensure you keep the tax bills to a minimum.

Inheritance Tax & Succession issues

Most families aim to minimise the tax burden for the next generation. The way this is achieved varies significantly from one family to another depending upon business interests and other assets owned. We work closely with the family’s land agent and solicitor to ensure that legal documents such as partnership agreements, Wills, trust deeds and lasting powers of attorney reflect the needs and wishes of the family and their business.

Renewables & Diversification

If you are considering investing in a renewable energy project, we can talk you through the relevant business and tax planning points. Early involvement will ensure you implement the optimum trading structure for your new enterprise. Plus, we can help you to understand the tax implications of the new venture, which is particularly important when land is being taken out of agricultural production.

Outsourcing, Payroll & Bookkeeping

We understand how the busy lives of those in the farming industry can leave little time for the accounting and administrative functions. Our aim is to make your working life easier and more profitable by shouldering the burden of some of the more time-consuming of your day-to-day tasks.

By outsourcing financial and accounting management services to Ellacotts, you have more time to concentrate on strategic issues and growing your business.

We would love to hear from you!
