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. 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> </p><p>The Government estimates that around 50,000 individuals could be affected by the 2019 loan charge. Further information on who the charge affects can be found at page 17 of HM Treasury’s report on time limits and the charge on disguised remuneration loans:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/789160/DR_loan_charge_review_web.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/789160/DR_loan_charge_review_web.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p>This shows, for example, that 65% of the DR user population worked in business services, and only 3% worked in medical or education services.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is clear that all employers are responsible for paying their staff correctly. Anyone entitled to the Minimum Wage should receive it. We have more than doubled the budget for minimum wage compliance and enforcement since 2015; it is now at a record high of £27.4 million.</p><p> </p><p>Last year was a record year for NMW enforcement. Across the 2018/19 financial year HMRC identified a record £24.4 million in minimum wage arrears, for over 220,000 workers. HMRC completed almost 3,000 investigations; issuing £17 million in financial penalties to over 1,000 non-compliant employers.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2007, 14 employers have been successfully prosecuted for underpaying the Minimum Wage. HMRC issued 7 Labour Market Enforcement Undertakings in the 2018/19 financial year.</p><p> </p><p>This information will be covered in more detail in BEIS’ Minimum Wage Enforcement and Compliance report, which we will publish in due course.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We require a high level of accountability and transparency of academy trusts. Academy trusts’ status as companies, charities and public sector bodies, means they have a more rigorous tri-partite framework and are held up to greater scrutiny. The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) has worked closely with the Trusts and investigations are ongoing.</p><p>The results of the investigations are sensitive and cannot be shared at this time. Investigations are by nature complex and can take time to achieve the desired outcome. The ESFA is pursuing several avenues to ensure that matters are resolved in the public interest.</p><p>In addition, the department is working with the sector to continue building capacity and expertise in financial management, supporting effective school resource management with specialist advisers, three-year financial forecasting and developing buying hubs, and recommended deals for all schools.</p><p>All of this is reflected in the compliance of the sector, with fewer than 2% of academy trusts subject to an active financial notice to improve and 98% of academy trust accounts receiving unqualified opinions in both 2015/16 and 2016/17.</p>
