Despite the outward appearance, running a landed estate is not easy. But the best ones deliver strong total returns and give a lot of pleasure to their owners.
If you are an owner of the second generation or later, you may need to create the environment and financial structure to progress your businesses and take suitable risks.
And whatever your issues around capital tax and succession, you deserve bespoke planning.
BKL will help to define the objectives of your family and trustees, and develop plans to minimise overall tax take and maximise cash flow. We will also help you organise and manage your assets to make real progress year on year.
We focus on efficient reporting to the families and trustees, encouraging regular meetings and family AGMs with other advisers. We pride ourselves on our trusted relationships with them.
Across BKL’s team, we draw on a wide range of examples and experiences, plus the tax expertise to implement the family plan. This expertise includes the tricky VAT issues often found with estates, including diversification activities and sporting & shooting matters.
