Did you mean: tax credit?

Upcoming Business – Lords: Main Chamber (6 November 2014)

Additional cost to the Exchequer in tax credits in the light of the falling value of the National Minimum Wage. Oral Questions

The Chairman of Ways and Means took the Chair as Deputy Speaker (Standing Order No. 3) — European Union (Referendum) Bill (17 October 2014)

John Hemming: ...would have thought that we would be encouraging people to come here to sell The Big Issue, yet by selling that paper or running a nonsensical or otherwise unprofitable scrap metal deal, people qualify for tax credits and get a lot more money from them than they do from The Big Issue or whatever it may be. People migrate here to be officially poor. Nobody would ever have thought that was...

Social Justice Strategy — Motion to Take Note (16 October 2014)

Lord Kirkwood of Kirkhope: ...of which I speak. If that is what we really believe, we really need to respond to that. That needs political leadership. It is a very hard thing to do: leading a country to a poorer place and expecting to get the credit at the ballot box is not a trick that has been successfully managed by anybody in political history, as far as I am aware. So there are real challenges of leadership that...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014) See 5 other results from this clause

Mike Purvis: Is it worth spending one minute on why we are using a quarterly check? Some people have said, “Why not do it like tax credits?” I am told that Members’ postbags are full of complaints about tax credits and so on.

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witness (16 October 2014) See 1 other result from this clause

Dr Stewart: Yes. Some evidence that we have seen, certainly for the UK, suggests that as you see the working tax credit become more generous, you see the fees going up. I have not seen any robust evidence, because it is difficult to do because you have no counterfactual about what would have happened to the child care fees. There are more studies in Australia, but they certainly...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014) See 7 other results from this clause

Vidhya Alakeson: We acknowledge that there are some improvements in the Bill through the creation of tax-free child care compared with the current employer-supported voucher, the fact that it is not related to what your employer chooses to do but is available to all parents, and the fact that is available to the self-employed. We have three areas of concern. One is a very broad concern and...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (16 October 2014) See 5 other results from this clause

...anecdotally from experts that it is a minefield—an extremely complex area. We know that if an employee puts in an eligibility claim, and it is accepted, that will automatically stop the universal credit or working tax credit that they might have—we know that because the legislation and regulations tell us that. But an employee might not know that, and they might not fully...

Wales Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (15 October 2014) See 9 other results from this debate

Lord Newby: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Rowlands, for raising these questions, which are central to how these two devolved taxes are administered. As he said, stamp duty land tax is a somewhat volatile tax and is not as steady as some others. However, there is a borrowing power to deal with any volatility. As with any other body, it will be available to the Assembly to build up cash...

Opposition Day — [6th Allotted Day]: National Minimum Wage (15 October 2014) See 17 other results from this debate

Rachel Reeves: ...my hon. Friends mentioned in this debate, and it cannot come soon enough either for my constituent, Alice. She works three shifts a day as a cleaner to support her family, but ended up trying to survive on rolled over payday loans and had to come to me to ask for food vouchers because she had to wait months for the tax credits she was entitled to. Our welfare state was built to protect...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 October 2014)

Edward Miliband: We can see the record: higher VAT; cuts to tax credits; hitting working families; and the bedroom tax. That is the record of this Prime Minister. He cannot be straight about his tax plans, so perhaps he can be straight about his plans for tax credits. Can he confirm that as a result of his plans a one-earner family with two children on 25,000 a year will lose almost 500 a year?

Bill Presented: Devolution (Scotland Referendum) (14 October 2014)

Robert Syms: ...in Scotland, which is why we ended up with a referendum. Although I am opposed to devolution, I think that if Scotland is to stay in the United Kingdom, we must consider more fiscal independence and more tax-raising powers, because then its people will be taking more responsibility, and indeed more blame, for what goes on in Edinburgh. That is the only way to avoid a long running sore of a...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses - Sam Royston and Alison Garnham gave evidence. (14 October 2014) See 16 other results from this clause

Sam Royston: Sure. The first thing to say is that we welcome any additional support with child care costs to help families ensure that work pays. We have three principal concerns about tax-free child care. The first is the balance of support with child care costs and additional money found for helping families with child care costs. We are slightly concerned, as an organisation that works...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 October 2014) See 14 other results from this clause

...concern is about the interaction, and I know that you have just heard about that. We are very concerned about it. Any change in income or circumstances will change whether someone is better off on tax credits, tax-free child care or universal credit. Lack of parity between the various systems further complicates that. In particular, the caps are different, so whether you are able to...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 October 2014) See 5 other results from this clause

...is additional help. Where an amount of money has to be spread very thinly, I am sorry that it is not absolutely focused on the poorest families; it is a shame that we have gone above basic rate taxpayers on this. I am very anxious about the loss of the employer link, which I would be happy to talk about later. Although Anne said that it is simple, I think it is simple if you qualify, but...

Bill Presented: Carers Bedroom Entitlement (Social Housing Sector) (14 October 2014)

Barbara Keeley: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to provide that people in receipt of Universal Credit and Housing Benefit and accommodated in the social housing sector be entitled to an additional bedroom related to caring responsibilities or overnight care; and for connected purposes. The Bill would exempt households with one additional room from the bedroom tax if a member of the...

Public Bill Committee: Childcare Payments Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 October 2014) See 4 other results from this clause

...available across the country, but as I said, it depends very much on location. The fundamental issue is that we are trying to tackle child care issues in so many different ways. We have child care tax credits, employer-supported vouchers, pre-nursery education funding—we have so many things. The long-term view from a policy perspective should be to make that a lot easier and more...

Scotland within the United Kingdom — Statement (13 October 2014)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...to every household. I am not sure that I can make such commitments on the hoof, but I take his point. It is an important point because I sometimes think that we have never been given the full credit for what Parliament passed in the Scotland Act 2012. Indeed, someone who was campaigning on the yes side said to me, “Why did you guys and girls never make more of the powers that have...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Tax Incentives:  TV and Film Industry (13 October 2014)

Arlene Foster: Following the successful implementation of new tax incentives under the creative industry tax reliefs, the local film and TV industry can benefit from a group of corporation tax reliefs. These include the film tax relief, introduced in 2007; the high-end television tax relief; the animation tax relief, introduced in April 2013; and the video games tax relief, introduced from 1 April...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Jobs:  FDI (13 October 2014)

Arlene Foster: ...support companies. We can look at skills and training in conjunction with the Department for Employment and Learning. We will look at how we can support people with research, development, innovation and tax credits, depending on the sector that we are talking about. So there are other ways in which we can help, but, if corporation tax were devolved to Northern Ireland, we...

Written Ministerial Statements — Work and Pensions: Welfare Reform (13 October 2014)

Iain Duncan Smith: Today I can confirm plans for the next stage of implementing universal credit to all remaining jobcentres and local authorities as we progress national expansion through 2015-16 and secure delivery of universal credit across Great Britain. Universal credit is a major reform which is restoring work incentives and transforming the welfare state in Britain for the better. Once fully implemented,...
