star this property answer text <p>The Government has introduced a robust and proportionate regulatory regime for peer-to-peer (P2P) lending, balancing the need for consumer protection with allowing the sector to grow, innovate and provide competition in the lending market.</p><p> </p><p>The British Business Bank’s Small Business Finance Markets 2018/19 report sets out that P2P business lending increased to nearly £2.3bn in 2018, and assesses the P2P business lending markets in the UK, the USA and China. The report notes that the increased regulation in the P2P market in the UK has been mostly seen as positive, in contrast to China where regulators were slow to address the sector, leading to opportunities for fraudulent activity.</p><p> </p><p>The UK has been independently ranked by EY and Deloitte as the world’s leading hub for Fintech – the best place in the world to start and grow a Fintech firm. The Government is committed to ensuring that it remains the best place in the world for Fintech, and has set out how it intends to do that in the ambitious Fintech Sector Strategy, launched in March 2018.</p>

star this property answer text <p>As of 28 February 2019, there are 33,579 Scottish Limited Partnerships (SLPs) registered with Companies House. All registered SLPs are eligible under the terms of the Scottish Partnerships (Register of People with Significant Control) Regulations 2017.</p><p> </p><p>The above regulations also require a Scottish qualifying partnership (SQP) to register with Companies House and deliver information concerning its People with Significant Control (PSC). An SQP is a general partnership constituted under the law of Scotland that is a qualifying partnership under the Partnership (Accounts) Regulations 2008. On 28 February 2019, 369 bodies had declared as being eligible as SQPs and delivered PSC information to Companies House.</p><p> </p><p>The Government published, on 10 December 2018, the response to its consultation on the reform of limited partnership law. The reforms, which include tighter registration requirements, seek to tackle the misuse of limited partnerships, especially Scottish limited partnerships, while modernising the law governing them. The Government intends to legislate when parliamentary time allows.</p>

star this property answer text <p>This information is not available as the charge on outstanding disguised remuneration (DR) loan balances does not come into force until 5 April 2019. DR schemes are contrived arrangements that pay loans in place of ordinary remuneration, with the sole purpose of avoiding income tax and National Insurance contributions. The loans are provided on terms that mean they are not repaid in practice, so they are no different to normal income and are, and always have been, taxable.</p><p> </p><p>The Government estimates that around 75% of tax resulting from the loan charge will be paid by employers rather than individuals. Since the DR loan charge was announced, HMRC has agreed around 6,000 settlements of DR scheme use with employers and individuals, worth over £1 billion. So far, around 85% of tax secured has come from employers, and less than 15% from individuals.</p> more like this
