To meet the increasing numbers of investors seeking to invest in Uruguayan farmland, Fischer & Schickendantz created a specialized unit dedicated to agriculture investment consulting. This multidisciplinary unit provides a personalized service to clients, which starts with detailed, technical knowledge-sharing on the agricultural sector in Uruguay.
Clients then indicate the size of farm/agricultural investments desired, the location preference –if any-, and the type of activity to be developed (agricultural, livestock, forestry or other), and we source the best available land in the market, which we analyze and prescreen. Clients are then led to visit the shortlist of preferred farms, in a guided, personalized visit to led by technical experts.
When a decision to purchase is made, we advise on the different ownership structures, handle the purchase and the due diligence on the land deed, and provide the ongoing tax and accounting support. Our staff also assist investors in setting up a smooth operation, introducing farm management companies to run the farms, or assisting in finding tenants, when the aim is to lease the land. In larger investments, we incorporate and set up the relevant corporate vehicles, as well as the shareholder arrangements that clients request.
