as it says on the tin!
Insist upon root and branch reform and then tell HMRC to leaf them alone.
I woodn't touch them. Although they're Poplar with accountants I deciduously avoid them fir the very same reason...
To actually answer the question -
tree surgeons are just landscape gardeners who specialise. No special requirements at all except there tends to be a lot more safety equipment bought.
Wood you all stop messing about as you're barking up the wrong tree!
It should be plane to yew that this is a knotty problem and yew pine for more information.
A head for heights?
As long as you are used to doing branch accounts you should be ok. Wouldn't suggest visits to his workplace though.
If you liked this thread...
take a look at the My Word! thread in the Time Out discussion group.
Who would have thought there were so many word-wranglers (or should that be manglers) within the accountancy profession?
C'mon you lot....behave!
And on a more serious note......
Where a tree feller employed by the Forestry Commission provides and uses a power saw for the purposes of his or her employment, you can allow a deduction for:
capital allowances on the saw andexpenses incurred in using and maintaining the saw.
Paddy and Mick see an advert in Keilder forest - "Tree fellers required"
That's no good says Mick, there's only two of us....
And before you ask, I am Irish.
Ha Ha Ha
Every time I hear that joke I laugh sooooo much....and by the way I'm Welsh; which probably explains it!
I always thought they were due top slicing relief?
Whilst on the subject ...
... i always thought a tree surgeon was an Irish brain surgeon!
Insurance costs for tree surgeons
I would have expected the insurance and training requirements for tree surgeons to be much more demanding and expensive than for persons who are only landscape gardeners. In particular,
The personal insurance for a person who works with chainsaws while supported by ropes and harnesses when up tall trees.Public indemnity and third party insurance, both while working on the trees and for the risk of (tree) limbs falling off after the surgery.Continuing education, especially in relation to the legal and technical requirements for using chainsaws.
My personal experience of such matters is now nearly fifty years out-of-date and did not involve chainsaws. It was acquired during a couple of summers working as a forester while I was a university student.
Kudos to Caber Feidh and TopCat
...for actually sticking to the original point!
How do you knock the tree out first?
Presumably a tree surgeon needs to be accompanied by a tree anaesthatist?
And they would need a really big table, too. Can;t see how that's going to work.
