answer text <p>The Digital Services Tax will only apply to businesses with in-scope revenues of more than £500 million globally and £25 million in the UK, and businesses will not have to pay the tax on their first £25 million of relevant UK revenues. This means small businesses will not be in scope of the tax.</p><p> </p><p>The tax also includes a ‘safe-harbour’ which means those with very low profit margins will be able to elect to pay a lower rate of tax, which will ensure the DST is proportionate.</p> more like this

answer text <p>In 2017/18, HMRC levied 810 penalties, amounting to over £14 million, against employers who failed to pay workers the National Minimum and Living Wage (NMW). In the same period, there was one prosecution for obstructing an NMW investigation resulting in a fine of £2,977.</p><p> </p><p>Breaches of NMW legislation are normally a civil matter, where the consequences for not complying with NMW rules can include fines of 200% of the arrears and public naming. Criminal prosecution is reserved for the most serious non-compliance.</p><p> </p><p>The government is determined to ensure that everyone who is entitled to the NMW receives it. Anyone who feels they have not been paid the NMW should contact Acas helpline on 0300 123 1100 or via the online complaints form at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/pay-and-work-rights-complaints" target="_blank">gov.uk</a>.

answer text <p>The EU Mortgage Credit Directive (MCD), which came into force in March 2016, prevents lenders waiving the affordability requirements when a borrower moves to a new lender. As a result some borrowers may find it harder to switch to a new lender to access lower rates.</p><p> </p><p>While we must comply with the MCD, the Financial Conduct Authority have put in place exemptions which allow lenders to waive affordability requirements for customers that are remortgaging with their existing lender but not increasing the size of their debt. In addition in July 2018, UK Finance, the Building Socieities Association, and the Intermediary Mortgage Lenders Association, announced a cross industry voluntary agreement. Under this agreement lenders undertook to write by the end of 2018 to any borrowers on the reversion rate who are up to date with payments, and have a minimum of 2 years and £10,000 left on their mortgage, to let them know they can access lower mortgage rates with their existing lender. Officials in the Treasury continue to work closely with the FCA and industry to explore what more can be done<strong>. </strong></p>
