The OTS’s interim report, which was published on 28 February 2017, highlights eight areas that it will be looking at in more detail, including the level of the VAT registration threshold. Its recommendations will be published in autumn 2017. To support the review, the OTS has issued a call for evidence, including asking for feedback from businesses and their representatives.</p><p> </p><p>The UK’s VAT registration threshold (above which persons making taxable supplies are required to register and account for VAT) is currently set at £83,000, although businesses below this threshold can opt to register voluntarily if it suits them to do so.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>By 2020-21, the Government will increase funding for the NHS by £10 billion a year in real terms compared to 2014-15 to support the transformation of services across the country. This investment is £2bn more than the NHS asked for, and will help deliver the Government’s objective in moving to a seven day NHS by 2020.</p><br /><p>The Government does not commit to achieving a specific level of funding to the NHS from National Insurance contributions (NICs). Instead, a fixed proportion of each class of NICs receipts (from employees, the self-employed and employers) is allocated directly to the NHS; this adds up to about 20% of NICs receipts. The rest of NHS funding comes from general taxation.</p> more like this

The economic impact of shale, both locally and nationally will depend on whether shale development is technically and commercially viable and on the level of production.

The Capacity Market secures the electricity capacity required to meet peak demand in a range of scenarios.

These targets are based on advice from National Grid and our Panel of Technical Experts, which uses the analysis in the Future Energy Scenarios.</p><p> </p><p>With regard to the distribution network companies, Ofgem’s regulation takes account of potential increases in demand. In addition, BEIS and Ofgem published the Smart Systems and Flexibility Plan in July 2017. This signalled the move to Distribution System Operators where network companies are more actively managing their networks to deal with increasing levels of distribution-connected generation and increasing demand from, for example, electric vehicles and heat pumps.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) and Transmission Owners have an overarching obligation to develop and maintain efficient, co-ordinated and economical systems. Ofgem has also placed specific licence obligations on them to ensure that losses are as low as reasonably practicable. Whilst Government and Ofgem are aware of potential approaches to minimising losses, including through the use of low resistance cables, network companies are not instructed exactly how to go about this. Instead, Ofgem sets incentives for network companies, including broader environmental incentives on losses and business carbon footprint. These incentives have encouraged the network companies to proactively manage losses on their networks to the extent to which this is possible. For example, it is now widespread practice across GB to replace ‘high-loss’ cables with newer ‘low-loss’ substitutes, where this is efficient. The DNOs are also undertaking a programme of replacing pre-1960s transformers with newer more efficient types.</p><p> </p><p>Neither Government nor Ofgem specifically records the effect of losses on Scottish consumers and businesses. However, as part of developing their business plans for future capital expenditure, Ofgem will require network companies (including the Scottish network companies) to take into account the lifetime costs including losses, when deciding between different equipment.</p>
