Succession & Business Restructuring

Our agents can assist with the tax, trust and estate planning to secure the future of your business, through succession, diversification, sale and transfer.

Regularly providing valuation and planning advice, and assistance with budgeting for the future is one of our key areas of work throughout Dorset, Somerset, Devon, Wiltshire and Hampshire.

  • Property acquisition or disposal
  • Agricultural and business property relief
