star this property answer text <p>I have interpreted this question as relating to the pre-paid funeral plan market. 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>On 23 August, HMRC published Technical Notices on Customs, Excise and VAT procedures that would apply under no deal arrangements and the implications for businesses. HMRC has also written to 145,000 traders over the VAT threshold who currently only trade with the EU to explain the changes and to encourage them to look at the existing rest of world guidance on GOV.UK. We have also published our letter to EU only traders on GOV.UK.</p><p>We know that there would be some additional smaller businesses impacted who are not currently registered for VAT. We have engaged with trade and business representative bodies who have greater knowledge and access to these businesses. We plan to communicate through these groups, so that these smaller businesses are told about any implications. We will shortly publish a partnership pack that these representative bodies can use in their own communications.</p><p>To support the customs intermediaries sector to expand ahead of March 2019 HM Treasury and HMRC have also designed a package of measures which includes a one-off investment of £8 million to support broker training and increased automation.</p><p>HMRC’s communications plans have a phased approach and later in the year they will provide more information on what people can do should they wish to make preparations.</p>
