Hello, I am a small breeder and breed from my home. Last year made 7k (for 24/7 hard work with no holidays for years) previously I have always made a loss last year a huge loss, it is extremely expensive but I enjoy it, I would get more money working in Mc Donald's! Anyway, I am worried regarding having to change my property use to business use? Then pay business rates, to me this is a really scary prospect as I never intended for my hobby to go that far. What is the law on this, will I have to change from residential to business? Am I liable for business rates?
