star this property answer text <p>HMRC’s Import VAT on Parcels online service was launched in February 2019 to allow businesses to prepare for a potential no deal EU exit, and remains open for registrations. HMRC are working with key partners to communicate the potential changes to overseas businesses. While HMRC expect registrations would increase if a no deal exit were confirmed, registration numbers for the online service are not a reliable indicator of overall readiness because there are other ways to pay import VAT on parcels via third parties.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government keeps public sector pay and pensions policy under constant review in the context of the wider public finances.</p><p> </p><p>Pensions tax relief is one of the most expensive reliefs in the personal tax system. In 2017/18 income tax and employer National Insurance Contributions relief cost over £50 billion, with around two-thirds going to higher and additional rate taxpayers.</p><p> </p><p>The tapered annual allowance is therefore focused on the highest-earning savers, to ensure that the benefit they receive is not disproportionate to that of other pension savers. Less than one per cent of pension savers will have to reduce their saving or face an annual allowance charge as a result of the tapered annual allowance.</p><p> </p><p>The Government recognises that some senior clinicians face tax charges owing to the increase in the value of their pension accrual. The tax rules must apply identically to everyone in the same situation, regardless of their employer.</p><p> </p><p>However, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care has announced plans to consult on proposals for a new flexibility for senior clinicians in the NHS pension scheme via the introduction of a 50:50 option. This option will give senior clinicians in England and Wales more choice in respect of their pension accrual, and therefore better control in relation to any pensions tax charges.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p>
