Farming Succession Takes Centre Stage At Dundee And Castle Douglas Seminars

The challenges facing farming families planning for the future are to take centre stage at two seminars to be held in Dundee and Castle Douglas this week.

Set in a typical farmhouse kitchen, a play will be performed by a cast of key farming advisers from CKD Galbraith, Johnston Carmichael and Ledingham Chalmers on Wednesday (20 February) at The Landmark Hotel, Dundee, from 6.00pm until 8.00pm.

The following evening (Thursday 21 February), a cast will take to the stage to perform the play at the Douglas Arms Hotel, Castle Douglas, again from 6.00pm until 8.00pm.

Both free evening events will offer legal, tax and business advice for family farms on how to manage succession, partnership structures and inheritance tax planning for retirement.

Amongst those putting their acting skills to the test from CKD Galbraith will be Duncan Barrie in Dundee and Simon Brown and Robert Taylor in Castle Douglas.

Simon Brown said: "The event will cover the many issues which farming families need to consider when planning for their future. We hope the more relaxed setting of a play will bring to life the impact these issues could have and how our cast of specialists, all of whom are recognised as experts in their fields, can help.

"Careful planning is fundamental to the successful transition of a family business and by pooling our expertise we are able to highlight a broader range of issues."
