The challenges of keeping a farm in the family will be discussed at a free event being held in Oswestry later this month.

Experts from the world of finance, law and planning will be on hand to answer questions and talk through the current issues facing farmers.

The event is being organised by Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors, along with Halls Chartered Surveyors, Baldwins Accountants and Handelsbanken.

It will be held at The Wynnstay Hotel, Oswestry, on March 23 from 6pm to 8pm, with a light buffet being served following the discussions.

Ed Burrell, a solicitor in the corporate team at Lanyon Bowdler who specialises in agricultural matters, said the evening was sure to be useful for everyone.

“It promises to be a really good event with some very knowledgeable people able to give farmers plenty of advice about the future of their farm,” he said.

“We will focus on a fictional family farm and discuss what the future may hold now that their eldest son is home from agricultural college, full of fresh ideas for how the farm business could move forward.

“We will discuss diversification and its implications, such as raising funds, applying for licences and forming new companies, as well as traditional issues such as inheritance tax and succession planning.”

Places are free but booking is advisable as they are on a first-come-first-served basis.

To book a place, email or call Lanyon Bowdler on 01743 280282.
