Planning the Future of the Family Farm

Take a look back at our webinar from 19th November 

When taking action to include the next generation in the family farm, on some occasions it is motivated by a tax saving or an urgent need because of illness or injury.

It may not be openly discussed. It is a topic which can be stressful for both farmers, parents and their family. Investing time and energy into getting it right by getting the best advice and support is key to huge a milestone in a farmer’s life.

On Thursday, November 19 Macra hosted a webinar for parents, landowners, young farmers and other family members asking the hard questions to facilitate better succession planning for change and growth.

The session was facilitated by Macra’s national president Thomas Duffy. Sian Bushell is the main speaker for the event. Sian is a qualified farm succession facilitator with vast experience in the area.

We also hear from Austin Finn of The Land Mobility Service and Declan McEvoy of IFAC Accountants. Both give an insight to options and various structures alongside good financial planning.
