Farming succession takes centre stage in CKD Galbraith’s Agricultural Update 2014

Leading Scottish property consultancy CKD Galbraith will host their 2014 Agricultural Update in Western House Hotel, Ayr on Wednesday 19 February. 

The update is entitled “Planning for your future” and takes the form of a play set around a traditional farmhouse kitchen table and performed by a cast of rural specialists from CKD Galbraith, accountants Johnston Carmichael and law firm Ledingham Chalmers. 

The play covers issues of relevance to family farms including succession planning, contract farming, inheritance tax, partnership structures and planning for retirement and afterwards there will be a chance to put your questions to the expert cast.

Robert Taylor (pictured above) – partner from CKD Galbraith’s Ayr office - is among those putting his acting talents on show and said: “It’s never too early to take advice on issues like succession planning. 

“We hope that by setting the play in the familiar surroundings of the farmhouse kitchen that we’ll be able to help explain these complex issues in a way which is relevant and recognisable to farmers and will make for an entertaining as well as an informative evening.”

The seminar is free to attend with doors opening at 6.00pm and the presentation beginning at 6.30pm. Tea and coffee will be served after the presentation. If you will be attending the seminar please RSVP to Joanna Graham at CKD Galbraith on 01292 292534 or or join the event on Facebook at
