The Government will continue to assess potential additional measures aimed at stemming illicit financial flows from South Sudan in order to support the peace process. The Government’s Money Laundering Regulations 2017 require financial institutions to apply enhanced due diligence measures commensurate with money laundering risks with regard to new or ongoing business. This includes, where appropriate, consideration of relevant factors such as jurisdictional risk and the involvement of politically exposed persons.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Treasury Ministers and officials have meetings with many organisations in the public and private sectors on a variety of issues.</p><p> </p><p>Though I can understand the disappointment felt in a community when a bank branch closes, the decision to maintain a presence on the high street is a commercial one for the management team of a bank and Government does not intervene in those decisions.</p><p> </p><p>The retail financial landscape is changing, as more consumers and businesses opt for the convenience, security, and speed of digital payments and digital banking. Banking service providers need to balance customer interests, market competition, and other commercial factors when considering their strategy.</p><p> </p><p>However, the Government also firmly believes that the impact of branch closures should be understood, considered, and mitigated where possible so that all customers, wherever they live, continue to have access to over-the-counter banking services if they wish to use them. That’s why the Government supports the industry’s Access to Banking Standard which helps customers to understand the options they have locally to continue to access banking services, including specialist assistance for customers who need more help. Alternative options include the Post Office, which allows 95% of business and 99% of personal banking customers to carry out their everyday banking at 11,500 Post Office branches across the UK.</p><p> </p><p>I also recently visited a trial Business Banking Hub being run by NatWest, Lloyds Bank and Barclays in Birmingham and I will continue to encourage banks to think creatively about how they can ensure that consumers can access a wide range of banking services on a sustainable basis.</p>

In addition, government has supported the deployment of renewable electricity projects, with annual consumer support now reaching over £10bn.</p><p> </p><p>HMT has accepted the Committee on Climate Change’s (CCC) recommendation to conduct a review into the costs and benefits of transitioning to a net zero economy. The Review will consider how to achieve this transition in a way that works for households, businesses and public finances.</p><p> </p><p>Carbon pricing has helped to drive down UK emissions, in particular from the power sector, and will continue to play an important role to help meet the UK’s legally binding carbon reduction commitments, which are unaffected by leaving the EU.</p><p> </p><p>The government is considering long-term options for carbon pricing including the possibility of linking a UK greenhouse gas emissions trading system with the EU ETS.

star this property answer text <p>The off-payroll working rules (sometimes known as IR35) have been in place since 2000. They are designed to ensure that individuals working like employees pay broadly the same amount of tax and NICs, regardless of the structure they work through. They do not affect the self-employed.</p><p> </p><p>In 2017 the Government reformed the way the rules operate in the public sector in order to address widespread non-compliance. Evidence shows that compliance is improving without reducing the flexibility of the labour market.</p><p> </p><p>Budget 2018 announced that the reform would be extended to all sectors, but not until April 2020, giving businesses more time to prepare. The Government has consulted extensively on the reform and HMRC are rolling out guidance as well as an education and support programme.</p><p> </p><p>On 11 July 2019, HMRC published a Tax Information and Impact Note setting out the costs to business and individuals of the reform.
