Farming & Diversification - Tax Planning Roundup
Farming is going through the biggest changes in decades with the Agriculture Act 2020 and the change of subsidies to Environmental Land Management Scheme (ELMS).
With changes to the Town and Country Planning Act proving serious potential for development gains and the need to ‘bridge the gap’ with the loss of subsidies and increase farm losses there is a need to understand all areas of tax planning impacting on the farming industry.
This virtual classroom session will consider the key areas for farming and diversification.
