New blog format

I had a problem with upgrading the blog to a new version of WordPress and various parts stopped working. So I have had to restore to a completely new version which all looks a little different at the moment but I will tweak it to my likes over the next day or two.

Some of the images from the previous blog haven’t managed to make it over via the automatic export/import and I will get around to fixing those over time.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

HMRC plans to remove ECA for FiTs and RHI systems

HMRC have just published a consultation document that expresses their plans to remove the Enhanced Capital Allowances (ECA) from any system that is eligible to receive income under either the Feed in Tariff (FiTs) or the soon to be introduced Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

The changes would be imposed from the start of the 2012-13 tax year, next April.

The consultation process runs until 31st August 2011.

Further details can be found on the HMRC website.

Graduation day

I attended the graduation ceremony for my MSc in Environmental Education at Trinity University College, Carmarthen today. Felt only a little silly in the cap and gown. Managed to get through all the formalities without committing any faux pas despite the ceremonial parts being all in welsh. Many thanks to my tutors, Dr Glenda Tinney and Dr Paul Webber, for their ministrations, advice and guidance.
