Who are Farms and Estates?

As a specialist team of 23 staff within Albert Goodman we wholly deal with over 500 farms and estates. Each member of our Farms and Estates team has a background, education or interest in the rural community and rural businesses.

Our team is also a member of, chairs and was instrumental in setting up The Rural Accountancy Group UK (RAG UK). This group consists of 10 regional firms across the UK specialising in farms and estates. We meet twice a year and communicate throughout the year sharing technical expertise and experience. We also call on non-accounting specialists in the sector such as solicitors, barristers and land agents to share knowledge and experience.

In addition to our Farms and Estates Team, we can also pull on the specialist technical expertise from the other areas in our firm including tax, VAT, payroll, pensions and financial planning.
