star this property answer text <p>As set out in the Autumn Budget 2017 and the Industrial Strategy White Paper, the Government will drive productivity in every region of the UK by investing in infrastructure, developing skills, and supporting business. To date, the Yorkshire and Humber region has received more than £1.3 billion from the Local Growth Fund. The Autumn Budget announced a number of further measures which will benefit the region: an £840 million Transforming Cities Fund, which cities such as Leeds and Bradford will be able to bid into for funding to invest in productivity improving transport projects; up to £35 million to trial cutting-edge technology across the rail network, including along the Trans-Pennine route between Manchester, Leeds and York; and two new Tech Nation Hubs in Leeds and Sheffield, linking local tech businesses into a UK-wide network of hubs.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>At the Autumn Budget, the government announced it would introduce a Transferable Tax History for oil &amp; gas companies. This will give investors in UK oil and gas fields certainty that they will be able to get tax relief for decommissioning assets. This should encourage new investment in older oil and gas fields, keeping them producing for longer and supporting employment.</p><p> </p><p>The main industry body, Oil and Gas UK, in response to the Budget announcement have said that a Transferable Tax History would be <em>‘a vital step that can bring in new investment to increase recovery from existing fields and fund fresh investment which is key to generating activity for our hard-pressed supply chain. It will also help extend the lives of many mature fields and postpone decommissioning.’</em></p><p> </p><p>This builds on the £2.3bn of fiscal support the government has already provided to the UK oil and gas industry, including a package of tax cuts across Budget 2015 and 2016, £40m of funding for seismic surveys to support exploration, and the introduction of a new Investment Allowance. As a result, the UK now has one of the most competitive tax regimes in the world for oil and gas, further supporting investment and jobs.</p>

star this property answer text <p>At the Autumn Budget, the government announced it would introduce a transferable tax history for UK exploration and production companies. This is not a tax cut: it is designed to level the playing field between companies established in the sector and new entrants. It will do this by giving those new entrants certainty that tax relief will be available on their decommissioning costs. This measure is consistent with the UK’s existing carbon reduction commitments.</p><p> </p><p>The government is committed to tackling climate change and is a world leader in reducing emissions, having done so faster than any other G7 nation. The latest Energy and Emissions Projections Report shows that the UK remains on track to meet its carbon reduction targets. The Report is available here:</p><p> </p><p>https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/671187/Updated_energy_and_emissions_projections_2017.pdf</p> more like this
