star this property answer text <p>This Government recognises the value of co-operatives and other mutually owned businesses. The Government’s policy is to maintain a level playing field between co-operatives and other legal forms.</p><p> </p><p>In 2014, the coalition government introduced a number of measures to support the co-operative sector, including consolidating all the existing laws, to make it easier for societies to understand and apply the legislative framework and the rules governing them. The coalition government also simplified the electronic registration process to help new societies start up.</p><p> </p><p>In February 2018 the Government brought forward a measure to bring audit requirements for small co-operatives into line with those for small companies. This measure came into force on 6 April, and will save growing societies thousands of pounds in auditors’ fees that companies of the same size do not have to pay.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

The government launched a call for evidence into the regulation of the pre-paid funeral plan market in June 2018, having concluded that the current framework of self-regulation is not sufficient to ensure the fair treatment of consumers. We are currently reviewing the submissions and a response will be published in due course.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government takes all fraud extremely seriously and recognises the harm that authorised push payment scams can cause. The Government has created the Joint Fraud Taskforce, which brings together government, the banks and law enforcement to develop a collective response to fraud. The objectives of the Taskforce are to protect the public and businesses from fraud, reduce the impact of fraud on victims, and increase the disruption and prosecution of fraudsters.</p><p> </p><p>Furthermore, the government has established the Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) with a statutory objective to ensure that the UK’s payment systems work in the interests of their users. The PSR has convened an Authorised Push Payment (APP) Scams Steering Group, made up of an equal number of both industry and consumer group representatives. On 28 September 2018 this steering group published a draft voluntary code which sets out the circumstances in which payment services providers (e.g. banks) would be responsible for reimbursing APP fraud victims who have acted appropriately. This draft voluntary code is an important step forwards towards better and more consistent protection for consumers and standards for industry.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK follows standards as set by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). Data sets are an intangible asset and would therefore be covered by IAS 38 Intangible Assets. The UK government follows IAS 38 as adapted for the public sector. The Government Financial Reporting Manual 2018-19 sets out these interpretations and adaptations. The latest available publication of Whole of Government Accounts 2016-17 reports government’s intangible assets as totalling £34.5 billion at 31 March 2017. HM Treasury does not collect information on the value of data sets within this total or where they are held. The accounting policy used by the Whole of Government Accounts in recognising intangible assets is as follows (per page 82 of the 2016-17 accounts): “Intangible assets are recognised if it is probable that they will result in future economic benefits to the government and if their cost can be measured reliably. Intangible assets are initially recognised at cost and subsequently valued based on current value in existing use. Where no active market exists, intangible assets are revalued using indices or another suitable model.”</p>
