star this property answer text <p>Under the Fraud Act 2006, it is a crime to dishonestly make a false representation to make a gain, to cause loss to another or expose another to risk of loss. The Government takes fraud extremely seriously and recognises the devastating impacts that fraud can have on individuals and businesses.</p><p> </p><p>Decisions concerning how lenders assess mortgage applications, including how information from Credit Reference Agencies (CRAs) is used, are commercial decisions for banks and building societies.</p><p> </p><p>It is worth being aware that CRAs do not hold blacklists and do not tell a lender whether it should offer credit. Instead lenders use information from CRAs to come to their own commercial judgement. This means that while one lender may be unwilling to provide a mortgage due to a borrower’s credit history, that is not necessarily the case for other lenders.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>This is a matter for the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), which is operationally independent from Government. The FCA Handbook outlines the rules on the capital requirements for UCITS management firms, which are derived from the EU UCITS Directive. These requirements can be found in Chapter 11 of the Interim Prudential Sourcebook for Investment Business. If there was to be any policy decision by the FCA to change these rules in the future, that would be subject to the FCA’s relevant governance process, including a public consultation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The reforms to how the off-payroll working rules are administered have already been in place in the public sector, including local authorities, since 2017. In the first 12 months, these reforms brought in an additional £550 million in Income Tax and NICs, which otherwise would have gone unpaid. Independent research into the public sector reforms found that most public bodies did not experience any change in their ability to fill vacancies, or the rates they pay following the reforms.</p><p> </p><p>Following consultation, the Government announced at Budget 2018 that it will extend this reform to all medium and large organisations. On 11 July 2019 HMRC published a Tax Information and Impact Note setting out the impact on individuals, households and families of the reform in the private sector.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK is a member of the Paris Club of official creditors, and any bilateral restructuring of UK loans to other sovereigns is conducted through this group. The UK forgave most of our loans to the least developed countries through the Paris Club framework under the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank Group (WBG) Heavily Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) initiative in the 1990s and 2000s.</p><p>The UK continues to play a leading role in discussions on debt sustainability and transparency in international fora, including on climate-resilient instruments. The UK has supported work through the Paris Club and G7 to develop “Hurricane Clauses” which can provide Caribbean sovereigns with cash-flow relief following natural disasters.</p><p>The UK also provides broader policy support to assist the least developed countries affected by climate change. The Prime Minister announced at the UN Climate Action Summit on 23rd September 2019 that the UK would be doubling its international climate finance commitment to £11.6bn over the next five years. This will include work to help vulnerable countries and communities become resilient to the damaging effects of climate change.</p>
