Scottish devolution: Holyrood to get control of tax rates and benefits

first_imgWednesday 26 November 2014 4:15 pm Scottish devolution: Holyrood to get control of tax rates and benefits Scotland is to be able to set different tax rates to the rest of the UK after Labour dropped its opposition to the changes.The changes came with the reluctant blessing of Eds Miliband and Balls, although the latter is understood to have insisted that Westminster retain control of the personal allowance, the threshold below which earners pay no tax. The secret talks continued into Wednesday evening as the parties strove to seal a deal due to be announced on Thursday.As well as getting increased control of the taxation system, the changes will allow Scottish ministers greater control over the welfare system, including housing benefit and winter fuel payments.The new powers are expected to come into effect sooner rather than later, with the changes fast-tracked through Westminster next year.Labour’s hand was forced by its Scottish support flocking to the SNP. Without the Scottish seats it can usually rely on Labour’s job of winning the general election next May becomes more difficult.  Billy Ehrenberg Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe Wrap’Crazy Rich Asians’ Director Wishes He Made South Asian Roles ‘More Human’The WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Boris Johnson isn’t going to Cannes property bash Mipim this year

first_img whatsapp Tuesday 3 March 2015 8:01 am Boris Johnson isn’t going to Cannes property bash Mipim this year Share whatsapp Emma Haslett Boris Johnson won’t attend property knees-up Mipim this year, for the first time during his tenure as mayor of London.Boris has traditionally been a vocal proponent of London’s many development opportunities at the conference, for which 20,000 developers, investors, agents and civil servants descend on Cannes for a week of deal-making and revelry each year. But in the run-up to the General Election, it looks like campaigning will prevent him from putting in an appearance.A spokesman for the Greater London Authority (GLA) said his absence was “literally down to his massive diary pressures”.However, the GLA will send a delegation including deputy mayor for policy and planning Sir Edward Lister, and Richard Blakeway, deputy mayor for housing, land and property.Johnson has garnered criticism for his attendance at the property fair, at which property developers hold parties on yachts to woo investors.In October, Mipim’s London-based cousin, Mipim UK, was blockaded by protesters who accused him of “selling out” London to foreign investors.But at the conference in March last year, Johnson told developers to make a new deal to sell London homes “to Londoners first”.

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) warned that it could launch a 24-week in-depth probe unless Poundland “offers acceptable undertakings to address the CMA’s competition concerns in a clear-cut manner”.The watchdog identified 80 areas where it believes there is “a realistic prospect of less competition” – and an additional 12 where they will be competitors in the future.If the deal goes through, it will leave the new group with just one main competitor, Poundworld, alongside other discount retailers such as B&M, Home Bargains, Wilko and Poundstretcher.Sheldon Mills, senior director of mergers at the CMA and decision-maker in this case, said: “After the transaction, Poundland will no longer face competition from its closest rival, and following our initial investigation, it is unclear whether the constraint posed by remaining retailers is sufficiently strong to mitigate our concerns over how the transaction might affect choice, value and service for shoppers.” center_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Express KCS Poundland faces competition probe over 99p Stores tie-up Read This Next’The View’: Meghan McCain Calls VP Kamala Harris a ‘Moron’ for BorderThe WrapBill Maher Pokes Fun at Joe Manchin: He’s a ‘Democrat Except on Matters ofThe WrapRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapRick Leventhal to Exit Fox News Just as His Wife Kelly Leaves ‘RealThe WrapNewsmax Rejected Matt Gaetz When Congressman ‘Reached Out’ for a JobThe WrapDoes ‘In the Heights’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?The WrapAzealia Banks Blasts Candace Owens’ Juneteenth Diss With Callback toThe WrapJason Whitlock, Former ESPN and Fox Sports Reporter, Resurfaces at BlazeThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe Wraplast_img read more

Fifties ex-council flat goes on sale in South Kensington for £1.15m

first_img Emma Haslett Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULL Fifties ex-council flat goes on sale in South Kensington for £1.15m We all know good things come in small packages, but this is ridiculous: a two-bedroom flat in South Kensington has become the first ex-local authority home in London to go on the market for more than £1m. Yep, for £1.15m, this 700 sq ft home can be yours.The apartment is “exquisitely refurbished”, estate agent Maskells said. The previous most expensive former local authority home went for a hair below £1m – £999,950.  It may be in a fifties block, but the apartment’s location is not to be sniffed at. Set on the third floor of a block above Stella McCartney’s shop on the Fulham Road, it overlooks Pelham Crescent, where the average house price is £7.4m, according to Zoopla.It’s also been completely refurbished by high-end interiors firm Ivar, with “handmade” wooden floors and “bespoke features”.Close to Harrods and the King’s road, the the local area is a “highly sought-after location which hosts an array of local amenities”, said Maskells.

Bargain Booze and Wine Rack owner Conviviality Retail suspends trading after takeover talks with Matthew Clarke confirmed

first_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Thursday 9 July 2015 4:07 am Trading in Aim-listed group Conviviality Retail has been suspended this morning, after confirming it is in takeover talks with Matthew Clark Holdings.  Shares have been suspended because if the sale goes through it would constitute a reverse takeover under Aim rules, meaning privately-owned wholesaler Matthew Clark could become a public company without going through the IPO process.  Conviviality Retail, whose share price climbed 2.3 per cent yesterday, said shares would remain suspended “until either these discussions have ceased or an Aim admission document has been published”.  “The company will update shareholders with further information as appropriate.”  The group, which owns Bargain Booze – whose recent ad campaign played Aldi and Lidl at their own game – and Wine Rack, and has a market cap of £103m, appointed Investec Bank as joint corporate broker last month, working alongside Nomad Zeus Capital.  Its preliminary results are due out next Monday (13 July).  Matthew Clark’s most recent accounts, for the year to 28 February, show pre-tax profits of £17m on a turnover ot £811.1m. The company is jointly owned by Hertford Cellars, a subsidiary of Accolade Wines, and Punch Taverns.  Catherine Neilan whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeInvestment GuruRemember Cote De Pablo?

Rationale of bank surcharge under fire as IFS think tank blasts George Osborne’s 2015 July Budget

The IFS also criticised many other parts of the Budget. “This was not the Budget of a tax reforming chancellor,” said IFS director Paul Johnson, who wanted to see big improvements in what he called a creaking tax system. He added that it was a “tax raising budget, not quite consistent with the boast that it was aimed at a lower tax country,” and that it was “difficult to discern any clear sense of direction in tax policy.” The hiking of minimum wage to £9 an hour for over-25s by 2020 was described by Johnson as a “gamble” that could dent economic growth. The only sure way of achieving pay rises is to raise productivity, he said. The minimum wage hike would also fail to offset cuts in tax credits and other welfare. Changes to tax credits mean 3m families will lose an average of just over £1,000 a year.  The poorest working families will be hit hardest by the planned tax credit cuts, the IFS said. But a large proportion of minimum wage earners are not in the lowest income households.  Instead they tend to be second earners in a household with a higher earner. Yet even if a single parent with two young children was bumped up to the new higher minimum wage from the current level, it would barely make up for the loss in tax credits.   Thursday 9 July 2015 9:20 pm whatsapp Express KCS Show Comments ▼ Rationale of bank surcharge under fire as IFS think tank blasts George Osborne’s 2015 July Budget Tags: Bank levy Challenger banks employment and wages George Osborne July Budget 2015 People UK jobslast_img read more

Nigella Lawson is coming to Canary Wharf this month

first_img Those who want a sneaky selfie with the star – or possibly a phone number – are advised to arrive early and sharpen their elbows for the Waterstones event, as access to Ms Lawson is strictly on a first-come, first-served basis.The book’s recipes are described as: “uncomplicated, relaxed and yet always satisfying”, which sounds like the polar opposite of a typical day in the financial district.On the other hand, Nigella may rub some wharfers up the wrong way with her disdain for the “clean eating” culture that has recently become so popular.Speaking to Good Housekeeping magazine ahead of her book launch, Lawson dismissed the current trend for “clean eating” (endorsed by a hefty proportion of the financial district’s food stalls and cafes) as a fad, and said following a balanced diet should not involve “being smug”.Lawson told reporters: “I wouldn’t want a life where I lived on chia seed pudding.” Better steer clear of Protein Haus then. We can already imagine the sheer glee on the faces of Canary Wharf’s male population when they find out that TV Domestic Goddess Nigella Lawson is coming to the Docklands for a book signing later this month.Lawson will be beating the brokers off with a stick on October 20, when the stylish chef will be signing copies of her new book Simply Nigella: Feel Good Food in Jubilee Place Mall.
