Chris has been looking after clients in the agricultural sector for many years. His clients range from small tenanted family farms to the larger estate. Many have diversified greatly over the years in order to maximise their use of resources. This can entail simply letting a property to a family member running a separate business.
As well as providing cost effective annual accounting and tax compliance services to his clients, Chris specialises in tax and succession planning for family businesses. The business structure is particularly important where diversifications take place. He is also very experienced in Capital Tax planning matters including inheritance tax and the use of family trusts.
He was born and bred in East Sussex on the family farm where one brother still farms today. His other brother farms near Chichester. Chris and his immediate family migrated further west and have lived near Alton for many years. In his spare time Chris enjoys getting out in the fresh air with his family and dog either on the land or water.
