Exceptions to the standard rate are strictly limited under domestic and international law. However, VAT-registered employers are able to deduct VAT incurred on such services to the extent that they relate to VAT-able supplies. more like this

star this property answer text There are currently 623 businesses in the UK who hold a valid Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) authorisation. HMRC does not capture data on the role of the authorisation holder in the supply chain so cannot provide the number of AEO status traders who are freight forwarding companies. The AEO programme is currently only available to businesses involved in the international supply chain; these businesses may also be involved in EU trade. HMRC offers substantial guidance on AEO on the Gov.uk website, additional guidance and learning modules are available on the EU web pages. HMRC also offers a helpdesk via email and telephone. more like this

star this property answer text The key assumptions behind the forecast for expected revenue from the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) higher rates for additional properties are as set out in the Spending Review and Autumn Statement 2015 and Budget 2016 policy costings. The tax base was estimated by combining price and volumes data from the Council of Mortgage Lenders, Census 2011 and administrative data from SDLT and Council Tax. The tax base was projected to grow over the forecast period in line with the OBR Autumn Statement 2015 forecasts for residential SDLT, residential transactions and average house prices. The costing also accounted for a behavioural response. At Budget 2016 the size of the tax base was re-estimated by the OBR using HM Revenue and Customs administrative data from SDLT returns. more like this

star this property answer text The government is taking a proactive approach to support those in problem debt. First, the government has increased funding for publicly-funded debt advice to over £56 million in this financial year, enough to provide support to over 530,000 people. This advice helps vulnerable consumers to seek expert help with their debts and get their finances back on track.<p> </p><p>Second, the government is also implementing its manifesto commitment to introduce a breathing space and statutory debt repayment plan. The polices aim to give people in problem debt the opportunity to take control of their finances and put them on a sustainable footing.</p> more like this

star this property answer text The government is committed to delivering a well-functioning and sustainable consumer credit market which is able to meet the needs of all consumers.<p> </p>In March, the government hosted the first meeting of the Financial Inclusion Policy Forum, a new key initiative bringing together government, regulators, industry and the third sector to coordinate action and provide leadership in tackling these challenges. The Forum’s mission is to ensure that individuals, regardless of their background or income, have access to useful and affordable financial products and services, including affordable credit.<p> </p><p>The government also supports credit unions, which provide an affordable alternative to high-cost credit. In the Autumn Budget 2017, the government announced its intention to help the sector expand by increasing the number of potential members of credit unions from two million to three million. In addition, from this year a greater proportion of funds recovered from illegal money lenders will be allocated to incentivise vulnerable people to join, save, and borrow with a credit union instead of turning to loan sharks.</p>

star this property answer text The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has stewardship of the local government sector in England. Together with the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA), they maintain the statutory guidance on local authority borrowing and investment. In light of changes in local authority borrowing and investment patterns, CIPFA and MHCLG updated the prudential code and statutory guidance in 2018. In addition, local authorities must make appropriate arrangements for the appointment of an external auditor to give an opinion on their financial statements as well as arrangements for securing economy, efficiency and effectiveness in its use of resources. The Public Works Loans Board has no role in monitoring local authority activities. more like this
