star this property answer text <p>Officials meet regularly with stakeholders to discuss a wide range of matters, including HM Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC’s) regional transformation plans. In addition, Ministers have discussed this issue with elected representatives.</p><p>The decision to move to regional centres is part of the wider Government strategy to develop Government hubs. For HMRC this includes consolidating 170 offices, many ageing and in poor condition, across the UK into thirteen new regional centres, four specialist sites and a base at 100 Parliament Street. This will help to maximise flexibility, collaboration and customer service while reducing costs to the taxpayer.</p><p>HMRC’s internal management information indicates that the vast majority of staff in West Lothian will be within reasonable travelling distance of the Regional Centre. HMRC will conduct one to one meetings with staff about a year in advance of the move to discuss their personal circumstances, whether or not they can move and what more can be done to support them. One to one meetings are held at this time to ensure that the most up to date information on the specific location of the Regional Centre is available to allow decisions to be made.</p><p>HMRC will support staff moving to the new Regional Centre by helping them with a contribution to additional travel costs, for three years for staff within reasonable daily travel and five years for those who live outside reasonable daily travel, after the move. For any staff who are unable to move, HMRC will look at redeployment options. This will include helping staff to find another role within the Department, or if necessary in other government departments. It is HMRC’s desire to retain as many existing staff as possible within the Department. Exit packages will only be considered when it is established that moving office or redeployment is not an option.</p><p>HMRC expects that travel support for staff moving to Edinburgh from Bathgate and Livingstone will cost approximately £2 million over a five year period. The estimated exit costs are expected to be approximately £1.45 million.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>There is no legislative framework for purchase receipts, which are simply an acknowledgment of payment. There is VAT legislation on when an invoice must be provided. This states that VAT-registered businesses are only obliged to provide invoices to other VAT-registered businesses. Expanding the information that must be provided on VAT invoices to cover other taxes and duties, or requiring invoices to be provided to private motorists as well as businesses, would increase administrative burdens for retailers. The Government therefore has no plans to implement this proposal.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government established an independent Financial Policy Committee (FPC) to identify, monitor and take action to remove or reduce systemic risks with a view to protecting and enhancing the resilience of the UK financial system. In March 2017 the FPC judged the appropriate Tier 1 capital requirement for the UK banking system, in aggregate and net of any countercyclical capital buffer, to be 13.5% of risk-weighted assets, as currently measured. The FPC’s judgement of the appropriate level of capital for the banking system was calibrated such that banks could absorb the cumulative losses in historical stress episodes and continue to provide essential services to the real economy.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is supporting lending to SMEs in a variety of ways, including: establishing the British Business Bank to make finance markets work better for small businesses; supporting challenger banks; introducing a bespoke regime for peer-to-peer lending; and structural interventions such as the bank referral scheme and the SME credit data sharing scheme.</p><p> </p>

The Government wants to move from a low wage, high tax, and high welfare society to a higher wage, lower tax, and lower welfare society.
