Wills & Estates Conference: Farm business succession

Managing the complexities of farm business succession

Family farming businesses are the backbone of Australian agriculture and their success and succession is vital to the sector. However, their unique blend of business and family, and the increasing value of the assets required to operate a viable farming business results in a unique succession dilemma.

This session will cover what makes farm succession different, including the impact of tax and stamp duty, farms in superannuation funds, and family provision.
