Accountancy services for farmers

Improve your financial yield

At Philip Barnes & Co. we know that farming is not just a business, it is a way of life – and often, for the farmer or farm manager, the essentials of keeping your accounts up to date, tax planning, bookkeeping systems and cash flow projections can feel like obstacles to overcome, rather than part and parcel of running a successful farm.

With over 50 years experience of providing accountancy support and advice for farmers we are well-versed in the issues that you face and we can make life a whole lot easier for you. We manage the complexity, keep on top of the ever-changing rules and work closely with you to ensure you are compliant, up-to date and taking advantage of every opportunity. We understand the unique challenges and the day to day pressures you face when managing your farm finances and our farming accountancy service can help you in the following areas:

  • Livestock
  • Crop management
  • Property management
  • Stock pricing and valuation
  • Getting the best out of Sum-It
  • Farm secretary
  • Farm diversification
  • Succession planning
  • IHT planning

To find out more about how we can help your manage your farm accounts, or arrange a free, no-obligation meeting please contact us on 01827 60033 or email

"We have been a farming client of Philip Barnes since 1970 and we have always found them approachable, friendly and supportive. Jo Warburton has always ‘gone the extra mile’ for us. Our diversification projects and our contracting companies have grown over the years with the professional support of Philip Barnes. I would certainly recommend them to small or large businesses."

Helen Trivett, Partner, R.W. & H.E.R. Trivett & Sons

"Some years ago we moved to Philip Barnes & Co. and have always enjoyed a professional and happy relationship. Problems and queries are soon solved, as the staff are always quick to pick up the phone. Partnership and tax planning are key areas that have been addressed for us, in a very efficient manner. We hope to carry on working together for many years."
