Experts in farm trusts and family partnerships

‘Protect your hard-earned wealth through family partnership’

You may want to transfer control of your farm or estate over to another family member. A family partnership lets you share or transfer control slowly, so the new owner has time to learn the ropes. It can offer Inheritance Tax relief for both generations too.

Protect your hard-earned wealth

You’ve worked hard to ensure your business is a success, so you want to be sure that it stays in safe hands. At Royds Withy King, we have a long history of helping clients in the agricultural sector, and can help you consider all the issues involved in setting up a family partnership or farm trust.

  • The choice of trustees
    It’s vital that you choose the right trustees for your farm, whether the trust comes into force on your death or during your lifetime. We can take you through the options so you can select suitable professionals or family members who can guide and control the family business in the future.
  • A flexible solution
    Perhaps your family hasn’t yet decided who will inherit the farm. Or the heir may not be ready to take over control just yet. Either way, setting up a family partnership gives you greater flexibility for the future.
