Christmas spending expected to fall. https://www.visa.co.uk/newsroom/christmas-spending-expected-to-fall-for-first-time-in-half-a-decade-2285032
UK consumer spending this Christmas season is
expected to be 0.1% lower in real terms when
compared with the 2016 festive period, figures
released by payment provider Visa have revealed.
This would represent the first fall in Christmas
spending in five years and is mainly attributed
to the impact of economic uncertainty and falling
wages. High street spending is set to fall by
2.1% in November/December 2017 when compared
to the same period in 2016. However, online
spending is expected to grow by 3.6%, with £2
of every £5 spent set to be spent online.

than Brexit', Morgan Stanley claims. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/jeremy-corbyn-morgan-stanley-worse-threat-brexit-british-business-labour-prime-minister-policies-a8079981.html
Compared to the threat posed by the banks
based on their actual performance, Mr Corbyn's
hypothetical 'threat' pales into absolute insignificance.
Of course, had Mr Corbyn levelled the same suggestion
at Morgan Stanley, he would no doubt, have been
accused of 'anti-Semitism.' Given the sustained
campaign of hatred Mr Corbyn has had to endure,
isn't it about time we had an 'anti-Corbynism'
law as well? Apart from alleviating compound

bill to tackle exploitation of gig workers.
The Work and Pensions and Business, Energy and
Industrial Strategy Committees have published
a draft bill to tackle the perceived exploitation
of gig workers. The bill outlines measures to
address false self-employment, which occurs
when an employer classes its workers as self-employed
in order to avoid paying income tax, National
Insurance contributions and employee benefits.
If passed into law, the bill will introduce
a new presumption of 'worker by default'. This
would require employers to provide workers with
a basic standard of rights and benefits, such
as sick and holiday pay, unless they can prove
a worker is genuinely self-employed. (EnterpriseQuest)
to highlight scale of UK small businesses.
Just 2% of people are aware that small businesses
with fewer than 50 employees make up 99% of
all businesses in the UK, according to a survey
commissioned by the British Business Bank. Only
21% of survey respondents were able to correctly
identify that small businesses account for £1.3
trillion or 33% of private sector turnover,
while the remaining 79% of respondents said
they contribute less. In response to the findings,
the British Business Bank has launched the 'Small
Wonders' campaign to encourage consumers to
support and recognise the value of small businesses.

PAC, Meg Hillier MP, said: "Failure to

income of £13,500 per year when combined
with the state pension. PPI's 'Restless Worklife'
study, commissioned by insurance provider Zurich,
also revealed a growing gap in workplace benefits
between gig workers and the rest of the workforce,
with 53% of gig workers receiving no benefits
from their employer. Gig workers are freelancers

The Office of Tax Simplification (OTS) has published

for the Government to make the VAT system simpler,
fairer and more flexible. Recommendations include
reforming the current approach to the level
and design of the VAT registration threshold,
reducing the impact of penalties on a business
that voluntarily discloses VAT inaccuracies,
and exploring how VAT record-keeping could be

HMRC reviewing Making Tax Digital. https://www.accountancylive.com/hmrc-reviewing-priorities-making-tax-digital-programme
HMRC has confirmed that it is likely to delay
work on some of the 250 projects that make up
its digital transformation programme, due to
the additional workload and uncertainty caused
by Brexit. HMRC is currently in talks with the
Government to agree which elements of the programme
should be delayed or deferred, which could mean
changes to the introduction of Making Tax Digital.
The chief executive of HMRC, Jon Thompson, said:
"It's not credible to continue with the
transformation programme as it is and deliver
all 250 projects at one time, not with the additional
workload of 40% to 50% because of Brexit and
responding to fiscal changes in the Budget."

Credit will discourage self-employment.
The Low Incomes Tax Reform Group ( ) has warned
that Universal Credit will discourage people
from becoming or continuing to be self-employed.
The current Universal Credit system assumes
self-employed claimants earn a regular income
equal to at least the National Minimum Wage.
In addition, no provisions are made for claimants
with income and expenditure that fluctuates
from month to month. As a result, the LITRG
has called for the Government to allow self-employed
claimants to average their income over a year,
and for the 'minimum income floor' not to apply
for the first two years after a self-employed
person starts trading. (EnterpriseQuest)
Abolition of Class 2 NICs delayed by 12 months.
HM Treasury has announced that the abolition
of Class 2 National Insurance contributions
(NICs) will take effect in April 2019 rather
than April 2018. The delay is to enable HM Treasury
to consult on the impact that abolishing Class
2 NICs will have on the low-earning self-employed.
Once Class 2 NICs have been abolished, self-employed
people with annual profits below the small profits
threshold will have to pay Class 3 NICs in order
to build up an entitlement to state benefits.
Class 3 NICs are five times the amount of Class
2 NICs for 2017/18 (£14.25 per week compared
to £2.85 per week). (EnterpriseQuest)

in 'rules of business' for small retailers and
A survey of 222 small and medium-sized retailers
and wholesalers by Menzies LLP has identified
the trading risks they expect to face in 2018.
The top four risks identified were cash-flow
difficulties, supply problems, a lack of resources
and the effect of uncertainty on trading activity.
The research also found that many small and
medium-sized retailers and wholesalers indicated
that they lack support and feel isolated, and
that they may require better signposting to
business support services. (EnterpriseQuest)
