Financial issues in the agricultural sector
As a business owner, you want to shape your own course. In order to make the right decisions, it is important that you have the right information available. We will organise your financial administration efficiently, so that you have 24/7 access to information about your current business operations. Do you have enough scope to realise your plans? What is the liquidity and profitability of your agricultural business? Pro gives you the information you need to formulate a well-informed plan for your business operations.
The agricultural sector group knows your sector
The agricultural sector has various subsectors, which face many different challenges. With twelve branches in the southwest of the Netherlands, Moore DRV has specialist knowledge of the various areas. With its roots in Zeeland, Moore DRV has many clients in the fishing and mussel sector, as well as in arable farming and fruit growing, while our accountants in Westland specialise in greenhouse horticulture. Moore DRV has combined all of this specialist knowledge of the agricultural sector into one agricultural sector group.
VAT and tax benefits for agricultural business owners
You do not want to miss out on fiscal benefit opportunities. However, it is also important to remain aware of the rules that apply. Which VAT rate can you apply to agricultural products? And what about exporting agricultural products? Our advisors keep you up to date with the latest laws and regulations and identify opportunities for you on both a domestic and international level. Since we are affiliated with the international Moore network, we can fully support business owners with cross-border activities.
There are also a number of specific tax and subsidy schemes that can save you money. If you have asbestos roofs that you want to replace or you want to make energy-saving investments, for example you may be eligible for an appealing scheme. Our subsidy advisors will explore the opportunities for you and whether you meet the conditions.
Acquisitions within the agricultural sector
The transfer of an agricultural business is often difficult due to the high market value of the business. Therefore, in order to make the business fundable, a different value is often used that still enables a barely profitable exploitation. Consider the lease value, which is considerably lower and gives direction in this respect. However, if the acquisition occurs within the family, this poses a problem for the other beneficiaries. Mutual relationships come under pressure and it can become difficult to maintain the business. Moore DRV has corporate finance advisors who are specialised in supervising acquisition processes. They can also provide support in finding the right acquisition party if no successor can be found within the family.
