star this property answer text <p>The independent Migration Advisory Committee recommended retaining the existing £30,000 salary threshold for skilled workers.</p><p> </p><p>The Government agrees with the Migration Advisory Committee’s view that the salary thresholds should ensure that migrants are raising the level of productivity in the UK, making a positive contribution to public finances and are not putting downward pressure on earnings. This salary threshold is an important control to ensure migration is managed at sustainable levels. However, before confirming the level of a future salary threshold the Government will engage extensively with businesses and employers, consider wider evidence of the impact on the economy, and take into account current pay levels in the UK economy.</p><p> </p><p>The Government currently maintains a Shortage Occupation List which is used to give priority to individuals within the highly-skilled route cap, and to exempt migrants from minimum salary thresholds required for settlement if they are in a shortage occupation. The Home Secretary has asked the Migration Advisory Committee to review the current Shortage Occupation List.</p><p> </p><p>The Migration Advisory Committee will be commissioned to provide an annual report on key aspects of the UK’s immigration system, including to advise on whether detailed arrangements such as the levels of salary thresholds, and the Shortage Occupation List, need to be revised in light of economic and social circumstances, and any emerging or longer-term trends that may impact the labour market. The Government will also invite the Migration Advisory Committee to examine the case for a Wales specific Shortage Occupation List.</p>

These touch on the full spectrum of the UK’s White Paper position. Crucially, both sides intend to take decisions on granting equivalence at least 6 months before the end of the Implementation Period. The joint position also includes establishing processes to ensure close cooperation on regulatory and supervisory matters. This will help to preserve financial stability, market integration and investor protection.</p><p>We remain committed to preserving our competitive position in financial services after the UK has left the European Union. Our industry continues to innovate and to move with the times – we have world-leading positions in the markets of the future, including green and sustainable finance, FinTech, and renminbi and rupee products.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Disguised Remuneration (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.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>HMRC is working hard to help individuals get out of tax avoidance for good and is encouraging anyone who is concerned about their ability to pay to contact them as soon as possible to discuss their options. In November 2017, HMRC set up a dedicated helpline for those wanting to settle their avoidance scheme use, and discuss payment options. HMRC will work with all individuals to reach a manageable and sustainable payment plan wherever possible.</p><p> </p><p>HMRC has also introduced a simplified process for those who choose to settle their use of DR avoidance schemes before the loan charge arises. Those earning less than £50,000 a year and who are no longer engaging in tax avoidance can agree a payment plan of up to five years without the need for detailed supporting information.</p><p> </p><p>There is no maximum period within which an overall settlement can be agreed, and HMRC will deal with individual cases appropriately and sympathetically.</p>
