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.
