What help can banks give farms?
There are several ways in which banks can help farms, depending on the needs of that farm business. This can cover personal finance, agricultural farm finance and agricultural mortgages and agricultural re-mortgages.
If you need finance for farm land and buildings, there are a number of agricultural mortgages that one can apply for. Agricultural mortgages are designed to help farmers buy farmland, farm buildings or improve existing farm properties. Our specialist independent farm consultants work with bank managers and estate managers in the UK with both property expertise and local knowledge. Therefore, you'll get bespoke financial help to find you find the most effective funding for your farming business.
Credible information for your bank manager
As the success of your farm is also our success we will ensure your financial records are managed well and kept up-to-date, so they are favourable to banks for your future requirements, should you need finance for land, farm buildings, livestock, feed or farm machinery to name but a few.
We understand the quality of business information needed by banks and how much this increases over time. Agricultural bank managers are well trained in assessing farm businesses but for them to assess all areas effectively they require quality information to be able to do so. The better the information a farm can provide a bank, the better they can help. Contact Douglas Green - Independent Farm Consultants to discuss what your farm needs.
