Landed Estates

At WR Partners we act for over 65 families with landed estates across England and Wales, including around 500 trusts across the firm.

Rural estates operate in a complex environment, often needing to balance managing a commercial estate with the stewardship and preservation of assets for future generations.

Landowners and farmers continue to face a challenging economic background and market volatility along with changes in farming and sustainability policy. At the same time there are exciting opportunities in the sector.

Why Us

We are experienced in advising individuals, trusts, companies and partnerships, in both the day to day compliance matters that affect them, as well as considering the larger picture and ensuring that clients’ affairs are structured in the most effective way for them. We offer a bespoke service with the family’s long term plans front and centre.

Our Landed Estates team works to form lasting relationships, seeking to understand your business, goals and priorities and proactively advising on opportunities. We provide tailored accounts, tax compliance and advisory services to help you achieve your goals, whilst liaising  with other advisors.

  • Business and personal tax compliance services, including self assessment returns, capital gains tax, VAT, annual tax on enveloped dwellings (ATED) and capital allowances
  • Accounts preparation and bookkeeping services, including advising on appropriate software
