Written by John Swire

Farmers face potentially significant changes to Inheritance Tax (IHT) after proposals released earlier this month from the Office of Tax Simplification (OTS), according to rural accountant Old Mill.

The OTS review could result in a number of revisions to IHT, with both positive and negative impacts for farms, says head of rural services Andrew Vickery. “There are two proposals in particular which could have quite an impact upon farms and rural businesses, should the Treasury decide to implement them.”

The first proposal would be fairly positive as it involves possibly aligning the IHT treatment of furnished holiday lets with that of Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax...

Featuring TFF's very own @martian !

Soil is pretty remarkable stuff. It provides us with 95% of our food, helps regulate the earth’s atmosphere, and It's a bigger carbon sink than all the world's forests combined. In fact, it enables all life on this planet to exist. So why do we treat it like dirt? Guardian journalist Josh Toussaint-Strauss finds out how we’re destroying the earth's soil, but also discovers some of the progress we've made in the race to protect it.
