Specialist Services (including Farming & Charity)


With many decades of involvement in the local farming scene, we know the problems faced by farmers and those in related industries.  We can do far more than simply preparing accounts and tax returns. Other services include:

  • business plans and farm appraisals
  • help with grant forms
  • advice on accounting systems, both computerised and manual
  • VAT and book-keeping services
  • payroll
  • financial and business advice


We have many clients in this sector, ranging from private trusts to fund-raising charities to larger trading entities.  We can, of course, prepare and audit accounts, but our services are much wider than that.  We can help with advice on setting up a charity and obtaining HMRC approval, advice on the type of structure required and advice to trustees on their responsibilities.  For charities trying to raise funds, we can help with grant and lottery applications.

Tax planning

Our senior partner, Robin Winter, is a Registered Trust and Estate Practitioner and specialises in capital tax planning.  Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax are still of great significance to many people and the earlier the planning starts the better.  Wills should always be kept up to date. If you are thinking of renewing your wills, it is worthwhile having a check done on the tax implications. Contact Robin at our Cupar office.


The running of golf clubs and courses has never been more difficult, with financial pressures compounded by regular changes in tax, PAYE and VAT rules.  We can provide a wide range of services to members clubs, commercial courses and related businesses.

Trust administration

Running a trust need not cost a fortune.  We can give a professional service for a very reasonable charge.

Company secretarial work

We can assist with the setting up of a limited company and all the regular work of a company secretary – annual return, issue or transfer of shares, appointment of directors, minutes, etc.
