As part of the Farm Family Key Skills (FFKS) initiative being managed by CAFRE, a number of Business Planning seminars are to be held across Northern Ireland, to address the needs of farmers, farm family members and farm employees to increase their levels of knowledge and awareness in business planning and risk management.
The seminars will focus on areas impacting on farm businesses with key topics covered such as an overview and awareness of taxation including the main areas under which there may be liabilities, reliefs and allowances that may apply to farm businesses and recent tax changes that will impact on the farm business including land mobility.
These seminars will also provide farmers with important information on succession planning and business resilience and risk management including financial budgeting, forecasting and the impact of market volatility on farm profitability.
Twenty seminars will be delivered in local venues across Northern Ireland from November 2017 to March 2018. Confirmed dates are listed below and further event dates will be released in the New Year. For the events listed below, doors open at 7.30pm and event will start at 8pm.*
