Farming quotas: compensation for temporary suspension of quotas

Any compensation received for the temporary suspension of all or part of a farmer’s quotas is effectively compensation for loss of profits. The sums received are treated as trading receipts of the farming business for as long as the farmer continues to trade, or assessed as miscellaneous income if the farmer ceases to trade.
