If a farming family transfers the business to a company with family members shareholders and directors how would the land be treated if owned by a family member. Would a rent have to be shown? Could it jeopardise IHT planning if the owner died and the land showed as investment?

Can create IHT issues, but depends on what type of land it is. Anything that might go for development or woodland likely to be a problem.

I do lots of business structure planning, feel free to PM me if anyone wants a chat about it.
