Q: I run a family farm in Louth, and my 16-year-old nephew helps me for about 10 hours a week during school time with some administration and light help on the farm. He has been a great help, and during school holidays I would like to employ him full-time while he is off school. I want to register him for tax so that he is set up properly. Will this be allowed by Revenue, as he is family?

A: It is common practice in many family farms and businesses to engage children, spouses or other close relatives as employees.
