star this property answer text <p>HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) appointed De La Rue as the UK ID Issuer for the tobacco track and trace scheme following a comprehensive external commercial exercise.</p><p> </p><p>The audit requirements are set out in the Tobacco Products Directive (2014/40/EU) and implemented through the Tobacco Products (Traceability and Security Features) Regulations 2019. The regulations require De La Rue and their sub-contractors to provide HMRC with an annual declaration to ensure compliance with the independence criteria. The declaration must include a full list of services provided to the tobacco industry during the last calendar year, and a statement of the annual amount of worldwide turnover including how much of that turnover is generated from goods and services provided to the tobacco industry.</p><p> </p>HMRC recognises the importance of protecting tobacco public health polices from the commercial and vested interests of the tobacco industry, however it would be premature to reassess its contractual arrangements with De La Rue while the Serious Fraud Office investigation is ongoing.

star this property answer text <p>Due to the way Tax-Free Childcare is linked to 30 hours free childcare, a large number of Tax-Free Childcare accounts for 3 and 4 years olds are opened but not used to pay a childcare provider. This happens because a child who has a 30 hours account opened, will automatically have a Tax-Free Childcare account opened as well, if their parents are eligible. The reason for this feature of the service is to ensure a smooth customer journey for families signing up for 30 hours free childcare, so that they have a Tax-Free Childcare account ready for use when their child is no longer eligible for 30 hours free childcare.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally, when a Tax-Free Childcare account is opened for a child, of any age, accounts will be opened for their siblings if their details are also entered during the application.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government has done the necessary work to make sure that we continue to have a stable and functioning financial services regime at the point of leaving the EU in a no deal scenario.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has delivered a programme of legislation under the EU Withdrawal Act in order to provide continuity for UK citizens and businesses and to ensure the UK regulatory regime can function effectively outside of the EU.</p><p> </p><p>This legislation includes temporary permissions for EEA firms currently passporting into the EU, and temporary permissions to allow UK firms to continue using Central Counterparties (CCPs) and Central Securities Depositories (CSDs) in the EEA. It also includes a transitional power for regulators to phase in post-exit regulatory requirements for firms where they have changed as a result of the UK leaving the EU.</p><p> </p><p>Following the six-month Article 50 extension, new EU financial services legislation will become applicable between now and 31 October 2019 and will therefore form part of UK law on exit day. We are laying further Statutory Instruments under the EU Withdrawal Act to ensure this new legislation is workable in the UK at exit.</p><p> </p><p>However, it should be noted that the UK authorities are not able through unilateral action to fully address all the risks. For example, the risks to EEA customers of UK firms currently providing services into the EEA using the financial services passport also require action from the EU or individual member states.</p><p> </p><p>We therefore welcome the steps taken by the EU and some individual member states to mitigate some of the risks. This includes: the EU’s temporary equivalence and recognition for UK CCPs and CSDs; ESMA’s decision to approve Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) that include provisions to allow cross-border delegation of portfolio management between the UK and the EEA; and EIOPA recommendations which call on relevant member state regulators to put in place measures which aim to minimise detriment to insurance policyholders.</p><p> </p><p>As a result of all these actions, the Bank of England’s Financial Policy Committee said in its Financial Stability Report (July 2019): ‘Most risks to UK financial stability from disruption to cross-border financial services in a no-deal Brexit have been mitigated.’ But they also note that ‘in the absence of further action by EU authorities, some disruption to cross-border financial services is possible.’</p>
