    I tried to argue that we should be exempt because we don’t build anything. I believe pure arb work, and surveys etc. like Gary mentioned are indeed exempt. The thing is though, you won’t be on site doing tippy clippy reductions. You will generally be killing trees to allow access or building work, and you can’t really argue that this isn’t part of the construction process.

    Reducing a tree is potentially deadly as well. Usually for the tree if I’m involved.

    Standard these days mate, CIS. They’ll nab 20% of what you invoice, which you then offset against your tax return. Registration is pretty straightforward, but you need the right one. There’s a thread on here somewhere which someone more intelligent than me will be able to link.
