Accounting for Agriculture

Farming is more than a business, it is a way of life. Having a main office in York, we specialise in agriculture and the broader rural economy generally.

How well do we understand farming? Well, we have ex-farmers and farmers’ wives amongst our staff, and even an ex-professional agronomist, who will be sure to have a view on your soil type! And of course we have connections with the Agri banking sector, and agricultural consultants, who like us are committed to building strong, proactive and long term relationships with our clients.

Our core services include:

  • Reliable, professional farm accounts
  • VAT returns
  • Bookkeeping services
  • Tax minimising

In addition we offer specialised help with:

  • Capital and Agricultural Allowances against tax
  • Financing and Banking relationships
  • Cash Flow projections, business plans and forecasting
  • Feasibility studies
  • Diversification planning
  • Succession Planning and Inheritance Tax

[us_testimonial style=”2″ author=”Michael Dorman” company=”Stanghow Hall Farm, Lingdale, Saltburn”]I inherited a very extensively run farm, in a state of serious dilapidation some years ago. I asked John Minford if he could help prioritise necessary projects in order to breathe some life back into the business.
He arrived on site to assess the problems, and we have worked together since.
Minfords take pride in their knowledge of the farming industry,and now their Agricultural Specialist, Victoria Grant is always helpful in all aspects of the business including forward planning, Capital Allowances and Exchange Rates.
Minfords are a fine team. As a particularly grumpy farmer I do sometimes wish that they were not so bloody happy all the time! The good news is that a smile does not appear to cost anything.[/us_testimonial]
