Rural Business

Rix & Kay is based in the heart of the beautiful South East – and for decades have been advising farmers and a wide range of other rural business owners. Rix & Kay provides access to knowledge and experience, as well as a detailed understanding of rural economic, legal and agricultural issues.

Many rural businesses stay within a family for generations and rural communities have different priorities and interests to city dwellers. Rix & Kay can act on behalf of an individual farmer or a community group, maybe in the interests of preserving a way of life.

Rix & Kay can provide these services:

We can advise on all legal aspects of estate management diversification through conversions, leisure and exploitation and on opportunities for land development centered on commercial and residential schemes.

Rix & Kay will help clients look at the most effective means by which the business can be enhanced and eventually passed on to your chosen successors – whether that is by sale, gifting, establishing trusts, or by the use of your will, optimising the inheritance and capital gains tax planning opportunities that successive governments have provided in the business and agricultural sectors.
