star this property answer text <p>To date, the Romanian Presidency has held one official level discussion on the European Commission’s legislative proposal on VAT Rates. As drafted, this proposal would give the UK the flexibility to apply a zero rate of VAT to women’s sanitary products.</p><p> </p><p>During this discussion, the UK delegation made clear that the Government strongly supports the flexibility that the draft legislation would offer. Member States and the Commission are well aware of the Government’s firm commitment to zero rate women’s sanitary products as soon as it is legal to do so.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Most owners wishing to downsize are likely to have equity in their current property, and are already exempt from Capital Gains Tax on any gain made on their main residence. For most of those looking to downsize, the SDLT due on the move-in property will be small, and in most cases, it will be lower than estate agent’s fees.</p><p> </p><p>The Government therefore has no current plans for a further relief for those looking to downsize. The Government’s priority is to support first time buyers, which is why the Autumn Budget 2017 announced the introduction of First-Time Buyers’ Relief. Since its introduction, 288,300 households have benefitted from First-Time Buyers’ Relief, saving around £2,360 on average.</p> more like this

star this property answer text The Government is committed to public service pensions which are fair to workers and fair to other taxpayers. The tapered annual allowance is focussed on the highest earning pension savers, to ensure that the benefit they receive is not disproportionate. The Government is aware of specific concerns raised by some high-earners impacted by annual allowance tax charges. All public sector pay and pensions policies are kept under constant review and discussed with relevant departments. more like this

star this property answer text <p>Delivering a deal negotiated with the EU remains the Government’s top priority. However, if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the same customs rules will broadly apply to transporting instruments and equipment to the EU as apply to trade between the UK and non-EU countries. This will include the use of temporary admission and applications for Returned Goods Relief.</p><p> </p><p>Alternatively, ATA carnets are available for commercial goods, professional equipment or goods going to trade fair or exhibition in participating countries, which are moved on a temporary basis to a new customs territory (i.e. they will not be sold and will return to the country of origin). This includes musical instruments.</p><p> </p><p>In a no deal scenario, the process of using an ATA Carnet (or a temporary admission declaration) will become an acceptable option for moving goods temporarily between the UK and EU, as the UK will become a single customs territory. The process for obtaining and using a Carnet will remain as it is now.</p>
