Taking place at Trelissick House and Gardens at Feock near Truro on March 17, the free business essentials seminar is organised by law firm Stephens Scown LLP, Francis Clark LLP and Smiths Gore.

As well as a review of agri-politics, the seminar will cover key business topics that matter to rural businesses including the Cornwall Local Plan, tax planning and pension reform and BPS (Basic Payment Scheme). Attendees will also have an opportunity to take part in a tour of National Trust property Trelissick House.

Phil Reed, partner head of rural services at Stephens Scown LLP, said: “Election year is always an uncertain time for farmers and rural businesses as we wait to understand what the impact on agricultural policies will be. We hope our seminar will shed some light on this as well as a number of other crucial issues facing farmers today.”
