first_imgSunday 9 November 2014 11:40 pm whatsapp Joseph Millis whatsapp Tags: HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) Share A record amount of unpaid tax has been recovered from avoidance schemes, evasion and fraud by HMRC’s top team of specialist investigators – up by almost a quarter in the past year, says Pin­sent Masons, the international law firm.According to Pinsent Masons, the compliance yield from HMRC’s specialist investigations team hit £3.65bn in 2013/14, up from £2.97bn in 2012/13, making it the division’s most successful year to date.Pinsent Masons points out that this sum alone is equivalent to10 per cent of the estimated £34bn UK tax gap.Paul Noble, tax director at Pinsent Masons, said: “These figures should be a massive jolt to anyone with undisclosed or outstanding tax liabilities that have given them significant savings. HMRC has been recruiting and training heavily in order to increase the activity of its specialist investigations team.“HMRC is not only better equipped than ever before to chase down those it suspects of unfairly avoiding their fair share of tax, it’s also far more uncompromising in how it conducts its investigations and far more hard-nosed when it comes to settling cases.“This increased investigatory capacity comes with a raft of other headline-hitting new HMRC powers, such as more criminal sanctions for offshore bank account holders and new accelerated payment measures.” Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Florida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org HMRC recovers record £3.65bn in unpaid taxes from avoidance schemes, evasion and fraud last_img read more

first_img whatsapp Tags: Waitrose Show Comments ▼ What does a Waitrose shopper look like, and how would you tell them apart from a Sainsbury’s regular?  There’s actually not much to choose between them, according to YouGov, which has just released the best visualisation tool we’ve seen for a while. What YouGov says is particular (as opposed to generally true) about Sainsbury’s and Waitrose core customers is that they tend to be “ABC1” (ie. wealthier) women aged 60-and-over, with £1,000 or more discretionary spend, who live in London and the South. Their jobs vary – the group we’re calling Waitrose Wendys are more likely to work in business, consulting or the media, while Sainsbury’s Sallys are in healthcare and medicine, civil society and charity work, with business third most popular.   Their politics are also different – Waitrose women are more likely to swing further to the right than the neutral Sainsbury’s shopper.  Wendy’s list of favourite food is what you might expect from someone shopping at the upper end of the scale – her top three foods are saltimbocca alla Romana (that’s veal to you and me), braised endive and oysters. Sally loves hummus the most, followed by gambas al ajillo (garlic prawns) and then she too would plump for the saltimbocca.   How do the rest of the supermarkets compare?  Tesco’s shopper – let’s call her Tracey – is more likely to be younger (40-59), poorer (£125-£499) but in the same social bracket. A lover of steak, cake and risotto, she is more likely to live in Northern Scotland but appears not to have been swayed by the Yes or No campaigns.      Aldi and Lidl shoppers have a lot in common.  Both are men aged 60-plus – we’re calling them Albert and Leonard – who work in the home and garden. They hail from the North West and have less than £125 a month to spend. Asda Amy is from the same neck of the woods and has the same spending power, but is more likely to work in consumer goods.   Albert thinks things like “this country is going to the dogs”, a view shared by Amy, while Leonard is a conspiracy theorist – he thinks “the world is controlled by a secretive elite”.   Wendy and Sally meanwhile are more preoccupied with thoughts of organic produce, locally grown naturally, and high quality goods that they don’t mind paying for.  If you were Asda you might be concerned (or, in reality, not that surprised) to find your shopper is not particularly loyal. In fact, while she loves George for clothes and Asda for petrol, she shops at Aldi, Morrisons and Lidl as well.   Here is a link to YouGov’s notes about its methology, showing that these profiles are not the average or typical customer, but rather how their behaviours and so on compare to others in that group.  Catherine Neilan Are you a Waitrose Wendy or a Tesco Tracey: How do the UK’s supermarket shoppers look?

23 pictures that sum up 2014

first_img whatsapp 23 pictures that sum up 2014 Share The year is drawing to an end so it’s time to take a look back at 2014 in pictures. In January, workers at the French Goodyear factory went on strike and then took two executives hostage after it was announced that the company was going to close the plant, with the loss of more than 1,000 jobs.  (Source: Getty) That same month it emerged that French President Francois Hollande had been having an affair with actress Julie Gayet. The story turned into a debate about privacy issues – but not before it made headline news around the world.  (Source: Getty) In February Janet Yellen became the first female chair of the US Federal Reserve. Viewed by many as naturally dovish, analyst consensus was that she was unlikely to raise interest rates until wider economic circumstances dictated it. Later in 2014 she was ranked by Forbes as the second most powerful woman in the world after German Chancellor Angela Merkel.  (Source: Getty) Also in February, General Motors recalls 800,000 cars over faulty ignition switches, but by the summer this had risen to recalls for 28 million cars. The fault had been known to GM for a decade previously, and costs are expected to reach £1.2bn.  Chief executive Mary Barra offered “sincere apologies” to the families affected. (Source: Getty) In March, comedian and presenter Ellen Degeneres posted on Twitter what has since become the most retweeted picture ever. Simply known as the Oscar Selfie, it featured 12 of the biggest Hollywood celebrities. https://twitter.com/TheEllenShow/status/440322224407314432 The same month also saw the first disaster to strike Malaysian Airlines when flight MH370 disappeared during its journey from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Despite a widespread search, involving several nations, exactly what happened remains a mystery.   (Source: Getty) The Ukrainian crisis that began in November 2013 took a turn for the worse after the annexation of Crimea in March, which led to out-and-out war between the two factions.  (Source: Getty) May saw the world’s largest democratic election take place, with populist Hindu nationalist Narendra Modi taking the reins, despite being criticised for failing to prevent the 2002 Gujarat riots, as well as his track record on certain areas such as healthcare and education. But Modi’s pro-business stance has subsequently won him many fans.  (Source: Getty) In June, HRH Queen Elizabeth II came face to face with a very different type of throne to her usual seat when she visited the Game of Thrones set in Belfast. Sadly for the internet, she declined to sit on the Irone Throne, but it still yielded a good photo opportunity. (Source: Getty) Football madness descended across the globe when the World Cup began in Brazil. There were more than a few upsets though – England failed to make it through the group stages, the home nation lost 7-1 to Germany in the semis and Luis Suarez bit another person. So not all unexpected…  (Source: Getty) In July, a second disaster struck Malaysia as its Flight MH17 crashed over Ukraine, killing 298 people. The final investigation is yet to report but it is widely believed that pro-Russian separatists shot the plane down using a surface-to-air missile. Both the recovery operation and investigation were hindered by the ongoing crisis. (Source: Getty) Much of the world was captivated by not one, not two but three Supermoons.  The first appeared in July, followed by one in August, and then again in September. Northern Scotland was the best place to see it, but there were some pretty awesome views in London too.  (Source: Getty) The current Ebola epidemic is now thought to have started in December 2013, but it was in August that the world really started paying attention, after the World Health Organisation declared a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC) after the death toll rose above 1,000. There have been many moving pictures to come out of the areas affected by the epidemic but this one, showing a worker decontaminating a corpse in a Liberian classroom, is particularly shocking.  (Source: Getty) Meanwhile in Ferguson, Missouri, protests and demonstrations turned into riots and civil disobediance after a policeman shot and killed unarmed citizen Michael Brown. The unrest continued for several weeks, and resurfaced again after a grand jury decided not to indict the police officer involved. Later in 2014, there was more condemnation of the US police force after Eric Garner died in choke hold, with his dying words “I can’t breathe” forming a major protest movement. (Source: Getty) Islamic State grabbed headlines throughout the year, but the possiblity that the extremist group could enter Nato member Turkey was the point at which airstrikes were introduced. The key town of Kobani – a Kurdish town on the Syria/Turkey border – was the setting for this battle.  Allied airstrikes in Iraq began in August, followed by Syria in September. The UK government approved airstrikes in Iraq late September.  (Source: Getty) The so-called Umbrella Revolution began in September, shutting down much of the business district in Hong Kong as protesters called for electoral reform. The use of tear gas, and an image of a protester protecting themselves using an umbrella, is what gave the movement its name.  (Source: Getty) No one thought it would happen. Then suddenly business leaders and (most) politicians worried it might. Scottish independence got much closer than ever expected, but ultimately the electorate voted “No – thanks” to breaking up the union.  (Source: Getty) Jack Ma became the richest man in Asia after his company registered the biggest IPO in corporate history. This picture captures the moment Alibaba debuted on the New York Stock Exchange.  (Source: Getty) Richard Branson’s ambitions to create a commercial space organisation suffered yet another set back after one of Virgin Galactic’s rockets crashed in October. Co-pilot Michael Alsbury was killed, but pilot Peter Siebold survived.  (Source: Getty) One month later, there was better news from the world of space exploration. A decade after leaving Earth, the Philae rocket landed on a comet – the first time this had ever happened. Sadly contact was lost just a couple of days after landing, but that didn’t stop the scientific world hailing it as an incredible success.  (Source: Getty) In November, the country’s thoughts turned to the centenary of the First World War, as the Tower of London’s moving installation reached its peak. Holding more than 800,000 poppies, one to commemorate each Brit who died during the war, the temporary artwork was so popular, the organisers had to extend it by two weeks.   Sentimental we may be, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like a good bargain when we see one. Or that we’re not willing to break a few bones to get our paws on the last dirt-cheap telly. As this Vine shows, chaos ensued on Black Friday this year.   The UK could hardly go through the year without at least one reference to the weather. The Met Office warned us of a new phenomenon in December – the weather bomb. It ravaged much of the country, but by the time it got to London was something of a damp squib.  (Source: Getty) Tags: Review of the year 2014center_img Monday 15 December 2014 12:20 pm Show Comments ▼ Catherine Neilan whatsapplast_img read more

first_img whatsapp whatsapp The head of Britain’s domestic security service yesterday warned that terrorists are planning a Paris-style terrorist atrocity against Britain.And in a stark warning, MI5 chief Andrew Parker said: “Although we and our partners try our utmost, we know we cannot hope to stop everything.”He said that the threat of a “mass casualty attack” was growing and that intelligence pointed to the existence of specific plots.Parker, who was appointed in March 2013, told an audience at MI5’s head­quart­ers in London that although three terrorist plots had been foiled in recent months, it was unfortunately possible that one could succeed.MI5 officers have increased surveillance of fanatics who had travelled to Syria whom they fear may launch copycat attacks, after 12 people were slaughtered on Wednes­day by gunmen, thought to be part of an al-Qaeda group, at the satirical Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris.Parker warned the UK was facing “more complex and ambitious plots” by extremists. The Paris outrage was “a terrible reminder of the intentions of those who wish us harm,” he said.He said if MI5 hadn’t foiled the terrorist plots, “deaths would certainly have resulted”.He said the number of “crude but potentially deadly plots” MI5 was facing had also increased, especially those by “lone wolf” terrorists.“Such attacks are inherently harder for intelligence agencies to detect,” Parker said.“They are often the work of volatile individuals, motivated by terrorist propaganda rather than working as part of sophisticated networks. “They often act spontaneously or after very short periods of prior planning.” Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe Wrap’Drake & Josh’ Star Drake Bell Arrested in Ohio on Attempted ChildThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Sturgeon was immediately attacked by Tory leader Ruth Davidson and Lib Dem Willie Rennie, who claimed Scotland would be left with a £7.6bn black hole. The figure comes from the independent Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS). Sturgeon refused to back down and said the IFS figure was only a snapshot and accused her rivals of believing Scotland was reliant on subsidies from the rest of the UK. She said the new powers would give Scotland the ability grow and she rejected the narrative of austerity.”Do we take proper control or leave ourselves at the mercy of Westminster cuts?,” asked Sturgeon. The SNP leader failed to specify exactly how the funding gap would be filled. Sturgeon stuck with criticising the figures and relying on oil and growth.However, Labour’s Jim Murphy challenged Sturgeon to explain what policy the SNP would pursue to achieve a growth rate that would be sufficient to make the numbers add up. Murphy accused Sturgeon of “making it up as she goes along.” The Scottish Labour leader said the SNP would be more in line with the Tories in wanting to limit the sharing of resources between all the regions of the UK.Murphy said Scotland would need to grow at twice the rate of other major developed economies to plug the gap in the public finances. Labour have attacked the SNP’s economic plans, with Ed Balls warning full fiscal autonomy for Scotland would lead to “full fiscal austerity.”The heated debate descended into farce with the leaders frequently raising their voices to speak over each other. Murphy hoped to dent the SNP’s appeal to Labour voters saying his party wouldn’t need to make any further cuts in Scotland.”The IFS are pretty clear that we don’t have to make further cuts to achieve our spending rules,” Murphy said. whatsapp Sunday 12 April 2015 1:17 pmlast_img read more
