I would like to concrete a yard that has been road scalping for years. Could this be classed as repairs?

No really by the letter of tax law, if you are putting concrete down where it was just hardcore before thats an improvement and counts as a capital item. Now I'm sure there would be lots of people who would be prepared to swear blind to their accountant that there was some ratty old concrete there that was 'replaced' :whistle: :whistle:
 
Surely there was a very thin layer of concrete on top of said scalping that you have now re laid to a deapth more suitable for modern heavy equipment. 👍.
Isn’t repairs supposed to be like for like, so technically if a thin layer of concrete before, should be same again .
Of course anyone with any sense would puit down thicker next time, if it’s broke up it obviously wasn’t up to the job and machinery is only getting bigger.

Dad allways used to say 4inches was more than enough..............he was wrong ☹️ Worse still it was under forty quid a cube back then ☹️

Our silo floor needs replaced. Its wore thin to around 2 inches deep. I take it silage effluent eats the concrete as it woulda started out deeper than that

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
