answer text <p>The Government recognises the important work that recovery operators perform. The Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations (RVLR) 1989 permit the use of amber warning beacons capable of emitting a flashing or rotating beam of light to raise awareness of vehicles during recovery operations. Amber is a universally recognised signal colour.</p><p> </p><p>RVLR also permits the use of an illuminated warning sign which must show a steady light, and be red if showing to the rear of the vehicle, and white or in some circumstances yellow if showing to the front.</p><p> </p><p>There are no current plans to change the law.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>The temporary reduced rate of VAT was introduced on 15 July to support the cash flow and viability of about 150,000 businesses and to protect over 2.4 million jobs in the hospitality and tourism sectors. As announced at Budget, this relief will now run until 31 March 2022, with a staggered return to the standard rate. Applying this relief permanently would come at a significant cost to the Exchequer, and that cost would have to be balanced by increased taxes elsewhere, or reductions in Government spending.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text The UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement seeks to reduce the costs for traders of customs processes introduced following the end of the transition period with the EU. It supports efficient customs arrangements and ensures that goods originating in the EU or UK are not subject to tariffs. For goods that do not meet requirements of the rules of origin, tariffs still apply. Products sent between the EU to the UK may also be liable for other charges such as excise duty and import VAT. The extent to which any of these charges and impacts feed through to consumer prices is based on a range of factors including individual business decisions. more like this

answer text <p>It is fair that two people working as employees pay broadly the same tax and NICs, even if one of them works through their own company and the other is directly employed. There is no direct link between employment status for rights and employment status for tax; however, those who wish to challenge their employment status for rights can take their case to an employment tribunal, regardless of their tax status.</p> more like this
