It provides an answer for 85 percent of uses, and HMRC will stand by the result given unless a compliance check finds the information provided isn’t accurate.</p><p> </p><p>Feedback from customers shows the CEST service is helping to ensure that, for most situations, decisions on whether a worker is in scope of the intermediaries legislation (known as IR35) are simple and quick. HMRC will continue to work with customers to enhance the service, and holds tax guidance on employment status under review.</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>
