Case Study

Tony Callaghan

Tony has worked with Fairhurst Financial Planning on several property developments. Part of his passion is to renovate and restore traditional public houses and bring them back into the heart of the community.

“Recently I identified The Last Orders in Standish as another project to add to recent developments, such as The Raven and Royal Oak. As with the purchase and renovation of The Raven, I turned again to Mark Hilton the pension specialist at Fairhurst Financial Planning Limited. With Mark’s specialist advice and knowledge I was able to utilise my pension to assist with the purchase of the Last Orders to save another pub from closure. The renovations will be complete by the end of 2017. The use of my pension fund and the actions of Fairhurst will help return a pub to its former glory rather than it being another empty high street property. The ability to use my pension fund has not only assisted with the purchase but it is also extremely tax efficient and makes sure that funding options, other than the traditional banking routes, are available to grow my business. This is a complex area but I am glad to have had Mark’s assistance in pursuing this option.”
