Transferring the Family Farm Online Clinics

Wednesday, 6th October & Wednesday, 13th October at 7.30pm

Increasingly, farm transfers are taking place during the owner’s lifetime, allowing all parties to manage the process. Every family has a different set of circumstances, but it is always better to have a plan in place. The worst case scenario is where the farm transfer is unplanned as a result of illness or the death of the owner, leading to tax and legal complications. Many farmers say they will never retire, however you do not have to be retired to have a succession plan in place and there are many decent tax reliefs and benefits to encourage you to prepare a plan in good time.

To help you prepare Teagasc is hosting two webinars on 6 & 13 October at 7.30pm as a follow-on to the webinar which was held last November.  You can register for this event at the button below.

Hear from experts from the Citizens Information Board, Succession Ireland and our own Teagasc solicitor. Post your questions to them and have them answer on the live webinar or send in your question beforehand to succession@teagasc.ie and receive a response to your inbox.

These upcoming webinars are a follow on from the 2020 clinics and are designed to help farm families through the process of and all aspects that need to be considered when transferring the family farm.
