Remuneration and related undertaking

Until 19 June 2017 I was a sole trader providing Sales Consultancy based in my home in Edinburgh. I worked three days per week in this role. I anticipate receiving remuneration of between £5,001 and £10,000 for work carried out prior to becoming an MSP.

I am a partner in J Halcro-Johnston and Sons (a farming concern of Gyre Farm, Orphir, Orkney KW17 2RD). I work one day per month. I receive a benefit in kind of accommodation in a property owned by the partnership, as well as payment of some utility bills, to a value of between £3,001 and £5,000 annually. If the partnership returns a profit, I anticipate receiving remuneration of between £1,001 and £2,000 annually. Any remuneration received by me will be reinvested in the business.

Heritable property

I own 150 acres of land in Orkney with a market value in the £0 - £50,000 band. I receive gross income from this land in the £0-£5,000 band per year.

I own a croft which produces a gross annual income of up to £5,000.

I own a flat in Edinburgh with a market value of between £250,001 and £300,000, which I use as accommodation when I attend the Parliament. I receive gross income from this flat from a lodger of between £5,001 and £10,000 per annum.

Interest in shares

I am a Director and own 50% of the issued share capital in Campaignhouse Ltd. (a consultancy company of 2nd Floor, 11 Rutland Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2DQ).
