answer text <p>Where the corporation tax liability of a club or an unincorporated organisation does not exceed £100, and where that club or organisation is run exclusively for the benefit of its members, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will not generally require that club or organisation to complete corporation tax returns. HMRC review such treatment every 5 years. This treatment does not apply to companies which are wholly owned by, or subsidiaries of, charities.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>HMRC recognises that asking a charity to formally claim tax relief every year would be administratively burdensome and therefore they do not require every charity to file a tax return every year.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>However, they do require every charity to file a tax return once every few years so that they can check that the charity is claiming any tax exemptions and reliefs in accordance with the law.

answer text <p>The distribution of passengers between Euston and Old Oak Common is forecast using the PLANET framework model. This model takes into account the time taken to access stations from passengers’ start locations, the possible route options from starting stations to destination stations, the time to get to final destinations and the level of crowding on trains. Based on this information, the model predicts passengers’ choices on the best starting locations for their journeys. In turn this drives the distribution of passengers between any station options in any area, in this case Euston and Old Oak Common. Full details of the PLANET framework model and how it works can be found on our website at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/planet-framework-model-pfm-v43-model-description" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/planet-framework-model-pfm-v43-model-description</a>.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The number of passengers forecast to be travelling on HS2 per day in 2026/27 once Phase One is open is 112,731. The number of passengers forecast to be travelling on HS2 after the opening of Phase Two in 2036 is 302,350. Based on modelling for the economic case for HS2 (October 2013) the forecast number of passengers using Euston to board and leave HS2 services in Phase One is 71,445, and Old Oak Common is 38,040. The forecast number of passengers from the economic case modelling using Euston to board and leave HS2 service in 2036 (3 years after Phase Two has opened) is 158,258. The equivalent number for Old Oak Common is 84,428. Forecasts for other years are not available as the forecasting tools only provide information for two years, the opening year of Phase One (2026) and the year in which the demand cap is reached (2036).</p> more like this

answer text <p>The distribution of existing rail demand across the Greater London area has two steps. The first step spreads the demand across London into 7 high level zones in the PLANET framework model on the basis of National Rail Travel Survey (NRTS) data and ticket sales data. The second step to disaggregate the demand from these high level zones into 1211 smaller zones uses demand distributions from Transport for London’s detailed RAILPLAN model.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
