Contract Farming & Joint Venture Agreements
Contract Farming and Joint Venture Agreements can be an effective way for landowners to reduce their day to day involvement on the farm and in the right circumstances can lead to increased profitability.
These agreements are often considered as an alternative to Farm Business Tenancies and can be an effective and tax efficient vehicle in the appropriate situation.
Our in depth knowledge of the wider issues relating to land ownership, such as taxation, single farm payment, environmental stewardship, sporting and other interests enables us to advise landowners as to the most appropriate options for their circumstances.
GSC Grays offer a range of contract farming and joint venture agreements that can be tailored to each individual circumstance. We work with both parties to create an annual budget and farming policy; this is then rigorously monitored through monthly, quarterly or annual reporting as required.
Agriculture has undergone a period of substantial change and will continue to do so in the future. Widely fluctuating crop and livestock prices, the ever increasing burden of legislation and rapidly changing and complex subsidy schemes, means that farms have to be proactively managed to maximise returns.
To discuss your individual circumstance please do not hesitate to contact Matt Trewartha.
