Farmers Averaging Election Success

02 December 2015

We are delighted that lobbying on the proposed extension of Farmers’ Averaging Elections from 2 years to 5 years has paid dividends. It was announced in the budget that farmers will have the option of either 2 year or 5 year averaging.

We were very worried that the initial proposal to only allow 5 year averaging would have made the system almost unworkable and rarely useful.

The system of 2 years Averaging Elections saves our Farming clients around £100,000 in tax every year so this would have been a big loss particularly in these difficult times.
