Farming Partnerships and Shareholders

Careful planning is required to ensure any partnership structure reflects the business needs.

Our experienced team will work with you to understand your personal and business objectives to ensure your interests are well protected. Costly disputes can be avoided through careful planning and a clear understanding of the position of partnerships assets.

Moving from a partnership to a limited company can also invite a host of benefits, from tax relief through to the protection of personal assets. In either situation the following should be considered to ensure you are well protected:

  • Alternative business structures i.e. co-operatives
  • Adjustment of profit shares and capital ratio
  • Business Transfer Agreement
  • Exit strategies and transfer of shares
  • Joint ventures
  • LLPs and limited partnerships
  • Occupation schemes
  • Partnership agreement
  • Partnership restructure
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Succession
  • Tenancy agreements
  • Will and estate administration

Dispute resolution

Farming partnership disputes can vary in complexity and often involve numerous partnership, property and tax laws. As many involve families we always aim to avoid litigation, and where possible offer appropriate alternative dispute resolution.
