The Estate Owner's Starter for 10

What every next generation landowner should know

Everyone taking over the reins of the family estate wants to be a good steward of the assets in their care. Current uncertainties about the UK’s future policy and political landscape are conspiring to make that even more of a challenge. This joint Roythornes/Saffery Champness seminar, held in the impressive surroundings of Stoke Rochford Hall, aims to provide a technical grounding to help next generation estate owners manage assets with confidence.

Seminar sessions

Being a trustee
Our case study “I’m a Trustee – get me out of here!” highlights good practice and some of the dilemmas trustees of a family estate face when dealing with difficulties. What makes a good trustee? What happens when there are fall-outs?

Getting the business structures right
Land-based businesses can be run through a range of structures, from sole trader to limited companies. This sessions looks at why one model may be better suited than another to a particular venture and explores the rights and roles of directors, shareholders and partners.

Planning for development, diversification and restructuring
In this session we consider some of the tax considerations to be managed as farming estates look to develop land, diversify activities and restructure in order to survive and thrive. Capital tax reliefs still have a crucial part to play and ‘Balfour’ still matters!

Question time
There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion during the sessions, the midmorning break and over lunch.
