UK raids Swiss bank accounts

first_img Share whatsapp Tags: NULL The British government is also pressing the Swiss to impose a withholding tax on interest earned in the past, although this more controversial measure has not yet been agreed. George Osborne made the agreement with Switzerland’s finance minister Hans-Rudolf Merz after a day of negotiations yesterday. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ UK raids Swiss bank accounts THE UK and Switzerland have struck a historic deal, which will see over 15,000 Britons with Swiss bank accounts pay billions extra in tax. Under the landmark agreement, which was thrashed out yesterday afternoon, the Swiss government will impose a so-called withholding tax on the interest earned by all British depositors. It will hand over the revenue, which is expected to total billions of pounds, to the British exchequer. Because the Swiss authorities will collect the tax, rather than the British, the identity of account-holders will remain anonymous. Sources close to the negotiations stressed that a tax rate had not yet been set, but suggested it would likely be between 40 per cent and 50 per cent.

It is not yet clear how much revenue the measure will raise, although tax experts said it would likely be several billions of pounds. There is said to be around £125bn of British assets held in Swiss bank accounts. George Bull, head of tax at Baker Tilly, estimates there are “upwards of 15,000” Britons with Swiss bank accounts, although he cautioned it was very difficult to judge due to the country’s secrecy laws. A similar agreement with Lichtenstein, which has far fewer British bank account holders, is expected to net the Treasury £1bn. John Whiting, head of the Office of Tax Simplification, said the agreement was “unlikely to close the whole deficit” but said it was welcome because it could boost future revenues. He added: “What this is saying is you can’t squirrel away revenue from the taxman. It will undoubtedly be a powerful deterrent to people thinking of trying to do so in the future.” Meanwhile, Switzerland has also agreed to work more closely with the British authorities in identifying people practising tax evasion. If the UK government approaches it with the name of a suspect, it will now confirm whether or not they hold an account. Monday 25 October 2010 8:39 pmlast_img read more

Adidas sets out ambitious target to overtake Nike

first_imgMonday 8 November 2010 8:36 pm Tags: NULL German sporting goods company Adidas aims to grow sales to €17bn (£14.6bn) by 2015 as it strives to overtake market leader Nike. “Our aspirations are to outperform total market growth… to outgrow our major competitor and have the bottom line grow faster than the top line,” chief executive Herbert Hainer said yesterday in a presentation to analysts at the company’s headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany.Last week, Adidas reported strong third-quarter results, lifted by US and eastern European growth, and said it expected 2010 sales to grow by 8 eight per cent at constant currency rates from €10.4bn in 2009. Nike recorded sales of $19bn in its year to May 2010.Adidas, the world number two, said its key growth markets would be North America, Greater China, Russia/CIS, Latin America, Japan, Britain and India.Under the new strategic plan, named “Route 2015”, Adidas is targeting a compound annual earnings growth rate of 15 per cent, faster than sales growth, and an operating margin of 11 per cent by 2015 at the latest.Hainer said its Adidas and Reebok brands would account for more than 90 per cent of the planned 45-50 per cent increase in sales. whatsapp whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity Timesmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

It has now reached the highest level since the survey began almost two decades ago.Signs of a consumer recovery were supported by a 45 per cent surge in confidence in the retailing sector, while figures for manufacturing and construction were also up.Germany’s consumer revival is reflected in the survey, which recorded negative retailing figures until a sharp boost in confidence since July.On Tuesday the German economy received a boost from a similar measure of economic activity, the Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) which rose sharply in November.German GDP growth for the third quarter of the year had earlier been confirmed at 0.7 per cent.The positive figures for November offer some relief for German manufacturers, after the EU revealed that new manufacturing orders from the Eurozone fell by 3.8 per cent in September.However, the Eurozone’s woes are not all bad news for Germany, according to Jennifer McKeown of Capital Economics.The drop in the Euro has actually helped manufacturing in “export-reliant Germany”, she said. alison.lock Show Comments ▼ Share last_img read more

Tight credit conditions continue to hold back recovery in the housing market, analysts say.Yet banks are ahead of schedule in repaying the loans given to improve their liquidity, according to the Bank’s quarterly report, released today.The report revealed that £75bn of the £185bn loaned to banks was repaid by the end of November. In September £57bn had been repaid.The Special Liquidity Scheme (SLS) was launched in April 2008 and expires in January 2012, with the Bank insisting that it will not be extended or replaced.After three years of support “each institution should be in a position to fund itself through normal market mechanisms,” said the Bank’s Paul Fisher, who also sits on the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC).Banks are expected to reduce their use of the loans in “a smooth fashion,” to avoid a funding crisis in the final months of the loan this time next year.Yet lending, particularly to small business and individuals, “has remained subdued even as economic activity has begun to recover,” today’s report states.And low rates of lending are more due to tight credit conditions than a reluctance from businesses and households to borrow, it says. “Weak lending is more likely to dampen the recovery than weak demand,” it says.Confidence in the availability of credit has taken a hammering, according to survey conducted for the Bank in September. Compared to last year, an extra five per cent of people were concerned about the situation. More than one in five people were worried about being denied credit, the survey said.The “persistent tightening in credit supply” is one of the main policy issues facing the UK, the report says.“The Bank will continue to monitor developments in bank lending and the banking sector closely.” Tight credit holding back UK recovery whatsappcenter_img Share KCS-content Sunday 12 December 2010 10:50 pm Tags: NULL last_img read more

Aslef says drivers are busier than they used to be and says the deal should be renegotiated.The two sides have not come face to face in a month, with London Underground accusing the union of holding London to ransom.Union boss Bob Crow fanned the flames, saying his only loyalty is to his members and he “couldn’t care less if we had a million strikes”.To add to the travel misery, train drivers on London Midland trains will strike on 23 December in a row over pay and conditions. They are angry that drivers are earning different wages for the same jobs after the firm was formed in a merger.
