The Addington Fund has been delighted to participate in seminars organised by the CLA SW team looking at a different angle of succession planning. Seminars in Gloucestershire and Devon have concentrated on farming businesses with no successors. Professionals from the world of land management, tax and law gave views on the various avenues available, recognising the sensitivity of all the issues around succession.
At a recent strategy meeting, the Trustees of the Addington Fund focused on supporting the next generation of farmers by continuing to provide housing to older tenant farmers wishing to retire and by doing so creating new opportunities and developing a portfolio of farmland through legacies to be able to offer farm tenancies. If you would like to discuss making a legacy to the Addington Fund please contact us.
