Rural Tax & Accounting with Old Mill

The Rural Tax & Accounting Podcast: Effective Planning for Farming Diversification

The Rural Tax & Accounting Podcast: Effective Planning for Farming Diversification.

Hosted by Nick Day of JGA Recruitment with Old Mill Accountants and Financial Planners.

Brought to you by Nick Day of JGA Recruitment, host of The Payroll Podcast, comes this one-off Rural Tax & Accounting Podcast Special.  Featuring Catherine Vickery (CTA) – Rural Services, Tax and  Mark Seager (FCCA) – Rural Services from Old Mill Accountants and Financial Planners, we discuss effective rural tax and accounting planning in relation to farming diversification projects.

With many farmers having to think laterally to survive and with farm diversification becoming increasingly commonplace I am excited to find out more about some of the challenges they face.  In fact, more than half of England’s 57,000 farms have diversified in some form or another according to new figures released by Defra.

Of course, diversification can also bring with it opportunities – particularly through additional revenues but these can come with various tax consequences and so it is important that landowners and farmers are made aware of the possible tax implications that may arise.

Farming often brings unique tax reliefs and the tax rules within the sector are complex and constantly changing, and diversification makes that no easier.

However, in this special podcast, Catherine and Mark help us to navigate through the diversification traps by highlighting the considerations rural businesses need to be aware of before they embark on a new diversification project.

Whether you are considering the conversion of buildings into a bed & breakfast, opening a farm shop, hosting a fishing event or develop solar or wind power, this Podcast will help you to discover where the invaluable tax reliefs exist.

Wellness and Working Well by becoming “Super-Human” – with Hari Kalymnios. #04

Working Well Hari Kalymnios ThumbnailHari Kalymnios is a wellness expert and author of three thought-jarring books – “The Thought Gym”, “The Super Journal” and more recently, “Working Well“.

With Health Awareness month upon us, I felt that this would be a great time to release this podcast as I get to witness first-hand just how stressed payroll and HR professionals are right now and I appreciate the pressures you are facing. In fact, the reality is that across all professions of the industry many employees are working under increased levels of stress.

We are in the grip of a stress epidemic.

However, there is hope! In this episode of the Payroll Podcast, Hari offers efficient and practical steps for changing habitual patterns that may be affecting our state of wellbeing. You will hear about several strategies you can implement right not to improve your wellness.

As our lives get busier and busier, boundaries between work and leisure blur and we spend less time thinking about what we’re putting our bodies through. If you work in payroll or HR, you are probably reading this and thinking “that’s me”!

The reality is that this fast-living is resulting in a pandemic of ‘ill-being’: from general weariness and ‘feeling under the weather’ to prolonged bouts of sickness, lethargy and sharp increases in stress, depression and mental health issues. Cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes and chronic lung diseases are now the four main causes of non-communicable disease death, making up around 70% of all deaths (around 17 million) across the world each year. By the year 2030, the figure will top 24 million.

The way we’re working isn’t working.

Hari teaches listeners on the Payroll Podcast how they can “unlock your inner superhuman” and be “on point” – mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually so you can be the best payroller, HR leader, entrepreneur, employee, colleague, parent, friend or human that you can be. To do this Hari shows you how first, you can need become the master of yourself.

Changing your thinking is the first step towards any change – especially if you want to achieve high performance.

Hari has trained corporates and entrepreneurs across the world to help them achieve improved focus, productivity, resilience, relationships, happiness, health, vitality and energy.
Here is what Phil James (https://twitter.com/philjms), CEO of the Institute of Leadership & Management had to say about Hari’s most recent book, “Working Well“:

“It’s time we took ourselves, that is our mind and bodies more seriously. Working Well asks us to do just that. Read this book, crease its pages, wear it out, share it and most of all act. Do something different and start working well today.”

Hari puts it like this – “train the mind…and the rest will follow”.
