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>

From April this year, the Soft Drinks Industry Levy will take effect, which is forecast to raise nearly £1.5billion over the next five years. This levy directly targets the producers and importers of sugary soft drinks to encourage them to remove added sugar, promote diet drinks, and reduce portion sizes for high sugar drinks.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Productivity growth has slowed globally since the financial crisis. The Government is closely monitoring the effects of this on the UK economy to guide policy. Since 2010 we have invested over half a trillion pounds in capital investment, cut taxes to support business investment and reformed technical education. The Autumn Budget sets out the next steps the government is taking to improve productivity. We are extending the National Productivity Investment Fund, increasing support for R&amp;D to its highest level in 30 years by 2021/22, transforming lifelong learning and responding to the Patient Capital Review that we commissioned.</p><p> </p> more like this
