Currently, I have a small factory and a small freehold office. The factory is let full time, and the office on an ad hoc basis. I am now adding a cafe - so I suppose I must claim to be an 'investor'!
I understand that income from property is a business but not a 'trade'.
Does this distinction really matter? Is there a point (in terms of number of premises etc) at which point you can claim to have a trade?
These are all owned personally.
