Having worked with estate owners since Douglas Home & Co began in the 1980’s, our team have extensive knowledge about the challenges they face. In order to thrive, estate owners need to be innovative, forward-thinking and open to diversification. Ever changing environmental pressures, maintenance of historic buildings and agricultural challenges are a few points that require proactive accounting and financial planning so you can make the most of your assets.
Led by company directors, Victoria Ivinson and Sheryl Macaulay, who are both members of different Scottish Land & Estate (SLE) committees. Victoria is part of the SLE taxation group who can feedback on potential future government tax changes and lobby to parliament about issues facing the industry. Sheryl is part of the South East committee, where they discuss challenges and share knowledge about various rural sectors. With this additional knowledge, you will be sure to receive tailored advice about the most current issues.
In addition to Victoria and Sheryl, managing director Darren Thomson is also a leading succession specialist within the industry. He has provided many different clients with proactive advice which has helped business owners immensely when they are planning for the future.
They are all supported by the additional company directors and DH&Co team who all have knowledge and training in this sector.
