Farming – a comprehensive review with David Missen and Bob Trunchion

Date: 5 November 2015 09:00 - 16:30

Type: Audit Assurance and Financial Reporting, Course, Legal and Regulatory, Tax

Farming is an area in which many accountants have clients. Despite this, it is difficult to get sector specific CPD locally.

The object of the day is to give a comprehensive review of what is current in agriculture from agri–economics, to the reforms to EU subsidies, how FRS 102 will affect your clients and, of course, the effects of the rush of tax changes and a review of green energy!

Content will include:

• The state of UK Agriculture in 2015 – an overview

• Inheritance tax and capital gains tax refresher

• Structures, successions, trusts, Pensions, incorporation

• Nitty gritty problems with HMRC etc.

• Life time Capital Tax planning – the dos and don’ts

EU Subsidies – the switch from SPS to BPS and the new stewardship schemes – the practical taxation and accounting implications

• Business & Agricultural Property – 100% relief, are you sure?

• Turbines, panels, biomass… where are we on green energy – economically and tax aspects

• FRS 102 and its impacts upon farm accounts

• Budget 2015 – No’s 1 and 2 and the consequences for farmers
