star this property answer text <p>Parliament has legislated the charge on Disguised Remuneration (DR) loans following the normal Parliamentary process.</p><p>DR schemes are contrived arrangements that pay loans in place of ordinary remuneration, with the sole purpose of avoiding income tax and National Insurance contributions. The loans are provided on terms that mean they are not repaid in practice, so they are no different to normal income and are, and always have been, taxable.</p><p>The charge on DR loans, legislated in Finance Act 2017, is a charge on DR loan balances outstanding at 5 April 2019. Its announcement at Budget 2016 provided scheme users with a three-year period to repay their DR loans, or to agree a settlement with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) before the charge takes effect.</p><p>HMRC’s role is to tackle avoidance and evasion, making sure people pay their fair share of tax and securing funding for our vital public services. Parliament has given HMRC the powers it needs to challenge businesses and individuals who do not pay their fair share, and it uses them responsibly and subject to appropriate checks and balances.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Business rates raise £25 billion in England annually, and are an important source of funding for key local services.</p><p> </p><p>The Government concluded a fundamental review of business rates in 2016. Some respondents suggested alternative taxes, but there was no consensus and respondents were clear that these alternatives were not without their own issues.</p><p> </p><p>Respondents agreed that property based taxes were easy to collect, difficult to avoid, stable and clearly linked with local authority spending. Following stakeholder responses, the Government decided to keep business rates as a property tax.</p><p> </p><p>To support the high street, at Budget 2018 the Government announced Our Plan for the High Street – a package of support worth £1.6 billion.</p> more like this
