star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to improving standards in the debt management industry to deliver a better deal for consumers and greater transparency for creditors. The Debt Management Plan Protocol played a crucial role in meeting this objective, working in complement with the OFT regulatory framework, and paved the way for more robust regulation of the sector by the FCA.</p><p> </p><p>From 1 April, responsibility for regulating debt management firms, along with all other consumer credit firms, transferred from the Office of Fair Trading to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).</p><p> </p><p>Consumers will be better protected under the new regime - the FCA will:</p><p>· police the gateway to the market more thoroughly;</p><p>· proactively identify risks to consumers;</p><p>· focus its supervisory resources on areas most likely to cause consumer harm;</p><p>· approve individuals in influential roles in firms;</p><p>· operate a flexible and responsive regime;</p><p>· use its wide enforcement toolkit;</p><p>· and ensure consumers have access to redress.</p><p> </p><p>The FCA will thoroughly assess every debt management firm's fitness to trade as part of the authorisation process – debt management firms will be amongst the first to require authorisation.</p><p> </p><p>The FCA has also introduced new requirements for debt management firms, including:</p><p>· Prudential requirements: Debt management firms often hold consumers' money - the FCA is requiring large debt management firms to hold capital to ensure that consumers don't risk losing their money if things go wrong.</p><p>· Guidance added that debt management firms should not allocate more than half the money received from customers in debt management plans to meeting their fees and charges.</p><p> </p><p>With the new FCA regulatory regime in place which will greatly improve consumer protection in the debt management market, the Government decided following discussions with a range of stakeholders that it was the right time to step away from an active role in the Protocol.</p><p> </p><p>The Government hopes that the stakeholders involved in the Protocol will continue to work together to help the FCA monitor the market and drive best practice in the sector.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>At Budget 2015, the Chancellor announced that from April 6<sup>th</sup> 2016, a new savings allowance will remove 95% of people from savings income tax. As a result the industry is expected to switch off the Tax Deduction Scheme for Interest (TDSI), and NS&amp;I plan to start paying interest gross on all taxable products, including the 65+ “Pensioner” Bond.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Bonds are not included in TDSI as NS&amp;I as a whole does not operate TDSI. Instead NS&amp;I decide on a product-by-product basis as to whether taxable products should be paid net or gross of basic rate tax. At the time 65+ bonds were being developed, the majority of pensioners were basic rate tax payers, and therefore liable to be taxed at the basic rate on the interest on their savings. Paying interest net of the basic rate on 65+ bonds meant that the majority of customers would be taxed correctly without the need to intervene.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>When TDSI was implemented in 1991, it was decided that it was not appropriate or cost-effective for NS&amp;I. The option to join was kept under review, but as 72% of NS&amp;I’s total stock is invested in tax-free products, and a large proportion of NS&amp;I customers are not liable to pay tax on the remaining taxable products, it is considered to be prohibitively expensive to the taxpayer for NS&amp;I to join the scheme.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>On 17 December 2014 the Chancellor authorised the sale of a third part of the government’s shareholding in Lloyds Banking Group via a trading plan. The plan is ongoing and will end no later than 30 June 2015. Morgan Stanley act as broker on behalf of HM Treasury to execute the trading plan.</p><p> </p><p>Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) rules require HMG as seller to inform the market each time its shareholding has crossed through a one percentage point threshold, which is typically released via RNS by the company. Lloyds have therefore released two such statements since the launch of the trading plan, on 23 February and 9 March 2015. These contain details of the government’s remaining shareholding in Lloyds. On both occasions, the government released a statement confirming these announcements.</p><p> </p><p>On 9 March 2015 the government confirmed that the total amount of money raised through the trading plan was over £1bn and that the government’s shareholding in Lloyds had fallen below 23%.</p><p> </p><p>As I informed the House in my written statement on 18 December, a statement will be laid before Parliament with further details at the end of the plan. In order to get the best deal for the taxpayer, I will not provide a running commentary on the price of shares and the precise number sold while the trading plan is ongoing. However, the Chancellor has made clear that no shares will be sold below the average price the previous government paid for them (i.e. 73.6p).</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
