Was talking to a few Plasterers and Ames Taping professionals in Scotland and they say they have never seen the Level 5 skim coating used in the UK, never mind having worked with it. They also considered Level 5 finish to be a sprayed on final coat, but I've applied the compound by hand as a full skim coat. They only ever tape to Level 4 for finishing in new build properties, where the Contractor is wanting a quicker finish and it's a lower budget. What's everyone's experience in Scotland and elsewhere?
