Kate Bell (nee Bailey) is a Partner in the Albert Goodman Farms and Estates team. Kate joined Albert Goodman in 2009 and qualified in 2012 progressing to Senior Manager. Kate then took a four year break from Albert Goodman to be a Director of a smaller agriculturally focused South West accountancy practice before re-joining Albert Goodman in 2020 as Partner.
Kate has particular involvement in the agricultural industry, not just by working with her agricultural clients, but is involved with various agricultural charities and farming discussion groups. Kate kept entertained by helping with her husband’s farming business.
Kate enjoys helping farming families of all shapes and sizes plan with their long term future, providing both commercial, business and strategic tax advice. Kate works with farms and diversified rural businesses across the whole of the South West, travelling from Cornwall to Gloucestershire.
Kate’s background is both Arable and Dairy but is kept up to date with the Beef and Sheep sector with her husband’s farm and is often invited to speak at farming discussion groups. Topics vary from income tax planning with practical capital allowances guides to business structures and long term business planning, as well as topical updates for the farming community.
Kate and the specialist Farms and Estates team can help with year end accounts, income and capital tax planning, as well as general business, or management advice.
Outside of work Kate enjoys attending Sedgemoor market, helping on her family farm in Warwickshire and baking. Occasionally Kate can be found undertaking the odd cycling challenge as well.
