Change of view on Land Remediation Relief (LRR)

HMRC has announced revised guidance on Land Remediation Relief (Brief 62/2008 -

The new guidance states:

             “A substance means any natural or artificial substance, whether in solid or liquid form or in the form of a gas or vapour. Previously, we have taken the view that the term “substance” could not include a life-form. We now accept that a plant can be a substance for the purposes of Land Remediation Relief.”

A specific section will be included on Japanese Knotweed.
