This live broadcast session will consider tax planning around farm development land in terms of inheritance tax and capital gains tax for farmers with links to VAT, income tax and corporation tax. The session will cover tax planning around small and large farm developments post the loss of BPS and moves to farming for the environment. For many farmers small developments can give a much-needed contribution to profits but the rise in building costs must be considered. The sale of farm cottages that are difficult to let and replace with new builds etc mindful of too many investments under Balfour.

The session will also consider rollover and business asset disposal relief (BADR) with the drop to £1 million limit and the emergence of the “rollover buyer”. There will be links with the need to incorporate farm development (large and small) tax planning into full farm succession planning.

Find out how to move forward with tax protection and planning with a farming client with potential development land for housing against a background of massive changes to farming.
