star this property answer text Check Employment Status for Tax (CEST) is an online guidance service, published on Gov.UK alongside HMRC’s more detailed guidance on employment status. HMRC developed CEST to help all engagers and individuals to determine employment status and decide whether the off-payroll rules apply.<p> </p>HMRC’s CEST service has been rigorously tested against known case law and settled cases, and HMRC stand by the result if it is used in accordance with their guidance.<p> </p>HMRC continue to enhance CEST in response to stakeholders’ concerns. Improvements will be made to language and presentation and include guidance to ensure questions are clearly understood. Changes are being tested with tax specialists and users of the service to ensure they meet individuals’ and businesses’ needs. more like this

star this property answer text <p>Where businesses dispose of assets, they may qualify for capital gains tax relief if the proceeds are reinvested in new business assets (known as Business Asset Rollover Relief). Land used for “short rotation coppice” (i.e. cutting back a tree at intervals of less than 10 years to harvest the stems) is defined by statute as land used for farming activities. Forestry businesses on woodland where trees are felled less frequently may still qualify for this relief, where they can demonstrate that the woodland is managed on a commercial basis and with a view to the realisation of profits.</p> more like this
