Succession is always complicated, especially the non-rural versus the rural however Wayne Turner was able to process this and bring valuable options to the table. I am the only off-farm sibling which bought its own level of complexities with both siblings working and living on the rural properties before a plan for succession had been actualised, so we had to navigate that. Wayne was able to help and show us the way; it was not easy working through the decisions and options but we got there and everyone was happy. Wayne kept us on track by discussing options broadly and then following up to guide us through the finer details. It was a lengthy process but we needed that time to consider all aspects properly and wholly.
Carrick Aland’s knowledge to minimise tax for everyone and do it in the best possible way was excellent. I have every confidence in Wayne who was like a part of the family at our meetings and has a great understanding of the family business. I think he enjoyed the challenge and put in a lot of effort to make us feel comfortable.
