star this property answer text VAT is a broad-based tax on consumption and the standard rate of twenty percent applies to most goods and services, including the supply of sign language interpreters and palantypists by VAT-registered suppliers. Exceptions to the standard rate are strictly limited under domestic and international law. However, VAT-registered employers are able to deduct VAT incurred on such services to the extent that they relate to VAT-able supplies. more like this

star this property answer text There are currently 623 businesses in the UK who hold a valid Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) authorisation. HMRC does not capture data on the role of the authorisation holder in the supply chain so cannot provide the number of AEO status traders who are freight forwarding companies. The AEO programme is currently only available to businesses involved in the international supply chain; these businesses may also be involved in EU trade. HMRC offers substantial guidance on AEO on the Gov.uk website, additional guidance and learning modules are available on the EU web pages. HMRC also offers a helpdesk via email and telephone. more like this

star this property answer text The key assumptions behind the forecast for expected revenue from the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) higher rates for additional properties are as set out in the Spending Review and Autumn Statement 2015 and Budget 2016 policy costings. The tax base was estimated by combining price and volumes data from the Council of Mortgage Lenders, Census 2011 and administrative data from SDLT and Council Tax. The tax base was projected to grow over the forecast period in line with the OBR Autumn Statement 2015 forecasts for residential SDLT, residential transactions and average house prices. The costing also accounted for a behavioural response. At Budget 2016 the size of the tax base was re-estimated by the OBR using HM Revenue and Customs administrative data from SDLT returns. more like this

star this property answer text The government has made significant progress to date in reducing borrowing – the deficit has more than halved as a share of GDP since 2009-10 and as the latest Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) forecast shows, the national debt as a share of GDP is forecast to be falling this year for the first time in over a decade. October public sector finance figures show government borrowing is falling, down £6.6 billion so far this year compared to last year. However, the job is not yet done. The government is committed to eliminating the deficit and returning the public finances to a more sustainable path. To achieve this, the Spending Review and Autumn Statement 2015 sets out the action required to return the country to surplus over the course of this Parliament. <br /> On the basis of these plans, the latest OBR forecast estimates that borrowing in 2015-16 will be on a like-for-like basis £73.5bn, £0.6bn lower relative to Summer Budget. The forecast also shows the government is on track to meet its fiscal targets, with a budget surplus of £10.1bn by 2019-20 and debt falling as a percentage of GDP in 2015-16 and for each year in this Parliament.
