star this property answer text <p>The sanctions have been designed to have the maximum impact on the actions of the Russian leadership while minimising the impact on the UK and EU. There will be a cost to the EU's economy, but there is a greater cost involved in not standing up to Russia's aggression. The Government has been clear that any pain as a result of economic sanctions should be shared equally across the EU.</p><p> </p><p>Due to the recent nature of the implementation of the sanctions Treasury officials are still in the process of analysing the initial data; it is a work in progress and not yet ready for public use.</p><p> </p> more like this

The Department for Work and Pensions also provides help for pensioners and those out of work to meet their mortgage payments through Support for Mortgage Interest.

star this property answer text The fiscal effect of raising the Stamp Duty Land Tax threshold is likely to be a reduction in SDLT receipts as fewer property transactions will be charged SDLT. A HMRC publication for Budget 2014 <em>(‘Direct Effects of Illustrative Tax Changes’, </em>19 March 2014) found that an increase in the £125,000 threshold by £5,000 would cost £35 million in its first year and £40 million subsequently.<p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Published research was undertaken by HMRC examining the impact of a first-time buyer’s relief that was in place between 2010 and 2012 (‘<em>Evaluating the Impact of Stamp Duty Land Tax First Time Buyers Relief</em>’, November 2011). It found that there was a substantial deadweight effect as many of the property transactions would have taken place anyway. The estimated increase in the number of transactions as a result of the introduction of the relief was between 0-1%.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p> more like this
