Lincolnshire farmers to challenge industry experts on Brexit

This story is over

A special event will answer Lincolnshire farmers’ questions about the implications of triggering Article 50 in the county.

Organised by chartered accountants Duncan & Toplis with Roythornes Solicitors, Brown & Co and Lloyds Bank, the seminar will look at the burning issues of Brexit for the industry.

Chaired by NFU Vice President Guy Smith, the ‘Brexit & You’ event will take on Wednesday, March 15 at the Newark Showground.

Speakers include Julie Robinson, Partner, Roythornes Solicitors, who will speak on potential changes in the sector, Mark Chatterton, Director at Duncan & Toplis, will provide information on tax planning in a volatile market and James Black, Senior Associate at Brown & Co will inform farmers how they can be fit for the future.

Micheal Summers, Area Director for Agriculture at Lloyds Bank will also give his thoughts on financial risk management.

Head of Agriculture at Duncan & Toplis Mark Chatterton said: “Brexit & You will be a fantastic opportunity to hear from a team of experts, not just about how Brexit could impact the sector but also about what steps you can take now to stay ahead of the game.

“Farms and estates could be more significantly affected than some other sectors as a new British agricultural policy takes shape. There will also be a Q&A following the speakers, meaning further lively discussion is likely.”

Brown & Co’s James Black said: “Uncertainty facing the agricultural sector over the coming years has been enhanced by the UK voting to leave the E.U.

“This brings as many opportunities as threats to farming businesses and this seminar provides an early opportunity to hear the views of the professionals from across the sector on how these may impact your business.”
