The traditional roles of accountancy and audit form a major part of the professional work undertaken by our firm.

Why do farmers need an accountant?

Our expertise means we’re perfectly placed to provide you with a sound understanding of the issues that surround your business. Our agricultural connections are second-to-none and where appropriate we can team our efforts with the best bank managers and solicitors in both Lincoln and Retford to keep your business on track. The benefits of having an accountant include: time-savings created by letting us process the financials leaving you to concentrate on running your business; removing stresses caused by uncertainty of tax treatments and their consequences; providing you with reliable knowledge and expertise whenever needed to support the growth of your business; money-saving benefits include taking on the roles of bookkeeper and/or management accountant at a more cost effective level and with lower risk and responsibility than directly employing staff for these roles within your business. 

We work with our farmers and landowners on a variety of issues including: 

  • Taxation 
  • Keeping timely accounts 
  • Providing business advice and support 

The Saul Fairholm team completely understands that working in agriculture brings with it its own unique set of challenges. From difficult operating conditions to capital financing to adjusting to changes in subsidies and other farming-related legislation such as the Lump Sum Exit Scheme introduced in 2022. We work with our agricultural clients to manage their financial landscape, improving their ability to concentrate on the day-to-day running of their farm businesses. 

Our services include: 

  • Property issues 
  • Diversification 
  • Business restructuring 
  • Succession planning 
  • Tax planning 
  • Renewables
