star this property answer text <p>There has been a long term reduction in annual tobacco duty receipts, driven by above-RPI increases in duty and changing attitudes to smoking. As shown in the published Tobacco Bulletin July 2018.</p><p> </p><p>In their November 2016 Economic and fiscal outlook the Office of Budget Responsibility revised their estimates of the underlying downward trend in clearances of tobacco. This was to account for various factors including weakness in tobacco receipts and the expected effects of the Tobacco Products Directive. Paragraph 4.75 noted that the effect on receipts from the introduction of standardised tobacco packaging is assumed to be captured by this downward trend in clearances across the forecast period.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government remains confident of agreeing a mutually advantageous deal with the EU. However, we understand that if in the unlikely event that the UK leaves without a deal, customs declarations will become a new obligation for UK-EU trade which could affect many small and medium sized businesses.</p><p> </p><p>HMRC continues to engage with businesses and their representative trade bodies and undertakes further specific engagement to understand how they will be affected by these new obligations. HMRC has written to 145,000 traders over the VAT threshold who currently only trade with the EU to help them plan for a no deal scenario. Alongside this, HMT and HMRC are supporting the intermediaries sector to expand ahead of March 19, so that they can provide services to SMEs.</p> more like this
