Question asked:


Farmer client with additional trade & vat registered purchased a plot of standing timber for the first time recently & has now agreed to sell on to a sawmill. He had nothing to do with the planting or management of the plantation.The sawmill have advised him to charge vat @ 23 %. I understand the sawmill will arrange the actual tree felling ( would it make any difference if my client arranged same ? ).
He hopes to complete similar deals in the future.
Can the profit from this deal qualify as tax exempt ?.
Could Revenue argue that it is a CGT event ?.
Kind Regards,
Frank Hanley.
