Many professionals will be familiar with partnerships and how they work but few will truly understand the nuances and complexities of a farming partnership. In the past this may not have mattered but with high values of land and an increasingly elderly farming population, the risk levels for advising in this area of the law have increased significantly.

Recognising the key problems that many farming families face, the need for commerciality and succession planning, this book explores the practical legal issues through a number of topics centred around the different aspects of a farming partnership. All farming partnerships are tailor-made to meet the specific circumstances of the client. The purpose of this book is to give an overview, with practical examples, of the main issues that you may come across. Whilst it does not have the scope to consider all the case law in relation to partnerships in detail, it does provide the main points, guidelines and strategies to help and support all those involved in advising on farming partnerships.
