As a result of successive increases to the personal allowance, 1.2m individuals will be taken out of income tax altogether by 2018-19 (compared to 2015-16), and a typical basic rate taxpayer will pay £1,075 less income tax in 2018-19 than in 2010-11.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>To tackle the problems associated with families overestimating falls in income, since 2007, when claimants report a fall in income during the year, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) adjusts their tax credit payments for the rest of the year to reflect their new income level, but will not include a one-off payment for the earlier part of the year. At the end of the year, their award is finalised when their actual income is known. If they have been underpaid, a further payment will then be made. However, provisions are in place to make arrears payments to claimants suffering financial hardship.</p><p> </p><p>The purpose of withholding the payment is to reduce the number and size of any overpayments and prevent customers incurring debt.</p><p> </p><p>HMRC has provisions in place to support those customers who are suffering financial hardship and in those circumstances any withheld payments can be released and paid to the customer without having to wait for the claim to be finalised.

The Government is aware that RBS and NatWest have written to businesses stating that a negative base rate may lead them to introduce negative interest rates, but they have not actually done so as yet. The base rate is set by the Bank of England’s independent Monetary Policy Committee, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer welcomed the decision of the Committee to use monetary policy to support the economy through this period of adjustment. As recent figures on jobs and growth have shown, we enter this period of adjustment from a position of economic strength.</p> more like this
