Succession & Inheritance

Transferring the family farm is so much more than just a simple business transaction; there are a number of complex issues to be addressed including:

  • The family home is normally inseparable from the business.
  • A number of family members/ siblings/ children to be catered for fairly
  • If the transfer is during the owner’s lifetime, the owner will require an income, as well as possibly the recipient depending on the circumstances.
  • Creating an arrangement that can provide a solution for the different opinions of the family members involved the discussion
