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

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 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>
