Under the proposals, from 2013 around 1.2m families in receipt of child benefit will lose their entitlement to it, a move ministers believe will save the Treasury £1bn a year. The measures would only affect those earning over £44,000.However, an average family of four will find itself £1752.40 worse off each year under the proposals if one parent earns over the £44,000 limit. KPMG says that a family where both parents are working, with one earning a salary of £47,000 and the other £25,000 – giving a combined income of £72,000 – would lose 3.29 per cent of its household income. The picture is worse for single income families with an income of £44,000 as this family would again lose £1752.40 in child benefit. But this would be the equivalent to 5.43 per cent as a proportion of household income, KPMG says.Meanwhile and somewhat perversely, a typical family of four where both parents earn just under the threshold of £44,000 will still receive child benefit. So a family of four with a combined income of £79,000, would be entitled to claim child benefit despite earning almost twice as much as a single income family. whatsapp KCS-content center_img Monday 4 October 2010 9:08 pm Share More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.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.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Winton boss Harding gives £20m to green energy lab

first_img KCS-content whatsapp whatsapp HEDGE FUND star David Harding has donated £20m to Cambridge University to create a green energy research centre. Harding, reported to be the City’s highest earner, plans to give the money to his old university’s Cavendish Laboratory to fund investigation into energy-saving materials and energy storage. The university said yesterday the donation is the largest ever received in its 136-year history. The Winton Programme for the Physics of Sustainability will be launched next year. Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, vice chancellor at Cambridge, said: “The University is most grateful to David for this donation, which is truly exceptional both in its generosity and in its vision of translating fundamental discoveries in physics, to meet one of the most pressing needs of our generation.”Harding made his fortune as the co- founder of AHL and Winton Capital Management, and received a dividend payment of £54m last year. The Cavendish has produced a number of Nobel prizewinners, including physicist Ernest Rutherford and Francis Crick and James Watson, who discovered the DNA double helix.

They also warned that such a system would be subject to leaksSummarising Britain’s position on the proposed body, they said: “The UK authorities strongly oppose any issuance of credit ratings by a public European credit rating agency, central banks, or public-private partnerships.”“The use of such ratings would potentially heighten scope for moral hazard and harm the independence of these institutions… A public agency would also risk crowding out private sector ratings and inevitably stifle competition in the industry.”Ratings have long been controversial, with only three agencies – Moody’s, S&P and Fitch – dominating the industry and having massive power to increase or decrease the borrowing costs of companies and states.The British statement backed the attempt to move away from such a heavy dependence on so few agencies but said that the Commission’s suggested measures were not appropriate.The EC is due to come up with a final draft of the regulations later this year, but they will have to be ratified by the EU parliament.

Scrap stamp duty, says OECD

first_img STAMP duty should be scrapped to encourage labour mobility, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) said yesterday.And massive house price hikes in recent decades were partly driven by restrictions on the supply of new housing, its report said.The Paris-based group suggested replacing stamp duty with an ongoing land tax based on market values, which could also offset cuts in taxes on income. A revenue neutral shift in the tax system would encourage growth and stability, it argued.And the UK could free up the supply of housing “by reassessing land-use policies, to make better use of vacant land with little environmental value,” including in the green belt, OECD economists said.House prices increased by more than 90 per cent between 1980 and 2008, the report said. Financial liberalisation increased the availability of home ownership to young professionals and people on low incomes, and added around 30 per cent to house prices, the OECD estimated.While deregulation amplified price volatility, the report also blamed “policies favouring homeownership over rental markets” which reduced labour mobility. Policies in the US exacerbated the number of houses falling into negative equity, the OECD economists said.The report criticised the level of regulation over the social housing sector, and proposed housing allowances as an alternative to the construction of more social housing.Social housing “can concentrate low-income households into neighbourhoods with negative consequences for access to education and labour market outcomes,” it said. whatsapp More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org Share Show Comments ▼ Scrap stamp duty, says OECD center_img whatsapp Thursday 20 January 2011 7:45 pm KCS-content by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comAlphaCute30 Rules That All “Hells Angels” Have To FollowAlphaCuteDefinitionDesi Arnaz Kept This Hidden Throughout The Filming of ‘I Love Lucy’Definition Tags: NULLlast_img read more
