CONCISE RURAL TAXATION originated as a series of notes for second year students on the BSc Honours Degree in Rural Enterprise and Land Management at Harper Adams University College, to accompany their lectures and tutorials.  Over the years the original series of notes has grown and developed, and more and more former students and others have asked to be able to buy an up-to-date copy as they have prepared for the professional examinations of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers.  This year’s change of title reflects the broader interest in this annual rural tax update.  The following taxes are covered:

• Income Tax, including Business Profits, Annual Investment Allowance, new treatment of cars based on exhaust emissions, the herd basis and valuations for income tax purposes, profit averaging for farmers, loss relief and next year’s further changes to Capital Allowances with an extended section on Short Life Asset treatment.
• Capital Gains Tax – including Entrepreneurs’ Relief and the two sets of changes in 2010
• Inheritance Tax
• Trusts and Settlements – including Mainstream Trusts under the Finance Act 2006
• Value Added Tax, farming and the rural estate, partial exemption, the de minimis rules and the introduction of alternative de minimis tests in 2010
• A chapter deals with a number of specific tax issues for rural land managers, including valuations, land compensation and taxation, the principal residence exemption from CGT, Single Payment Scheme, Pre-Owned Asset Tax, lease premiums, SDLT and the tax implications of letting land.   New for this year: the latest treatment of Furnished Holiday Lettings.
• An introductory chapter also deals with the administration of national taxation in the United Kingdom and the final chapter highlights reliable sources of tax information on the internet.
