Given its strategic importance, it is unsurprising that the sector has a specialised and diverse set of tax regimes, all of which are brought ...together in the Tax Guide to Farming, Forestry and Fishing. In addition to covering these special regimes, this book also covers some of the more general tax principles that are likely to affect farming, forestry and fishing.
