The best thing is to give money to farmers! Farmers are well known for heavily investing in their businesses. When grants and other schemes are announced there is always a good uptake. In the short term, the simplification of capital gains tax and possibly the abolition of it altogether would help those seeking to invest. This could be brought in alongside increased capital allowances and a simplification of national insurance. This would increase investment and reduce bureaucracy in business. Overall a simplification of the tax system should be the long-term gain as this allows farmers and rural business to make investment decisions based on sound investment principles rather than being tax driven.
