reminded about rate relief for childcare.
The Department for Communities and Local Government
(DCLG) has written to local authorities in England
encouraging them to offer business rate relief
to childcare providers. The letter, which follows
a request from Childcare Minister Sam Gyimah,
urges finance officers to 'consider using their
powers to provide relief to childcare providers
where there is a clear community benefit' and
reminds them that central government will fund
50% of any discount granted. The average rateable
value of nurseries (around £30,000) means
most are excluded from England's Small Business
Rate Relief (SBRR) scheme. (EnterpriseQuest)

Further details of changes to National Insurance
contributions (NICs) for the self-employed have
been released by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC),
the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) has
reported. The changes, which were announced
in the 2014 Budget, will result in self-employed
taxpayers paying Class 2 NICs via self-assessment
from April 2016. HMRC will also make Budget
Payment Plans available to taxpayers who pay
NICs by direct debit and are up-to-date with
their payments, which will help spread the cost
of contributions. HMRC has also announced that,
from 6th April 2015, Class 2 NICs will only
be mandatory if the self-employed taxpayer has
profits above the Small Profits Threshold (SPT).
The SPT will replace the Small Earnings Exception
in five people confused by online self-assessment.
Two in five people who have completed their
self-assessment tax return online in the last

by Which? The survey revealed that 38% of respondents
found the jargon confusing, while 32% found
the tax form difficult to complete, and 39%
said they needed to use guidance from sources
other than HMRC to complete their return. A
free tax calculator has been launched by Which?

With growing conviction across the entire
political spectrum that the Paris attacks were
organised by either Mossad or CIA wigheads,
the average visitor to Paris isn't re-assured
by any extra police and troop presence whatsoever,
bearing in mind the French government's use
of riot police last year to contain marchers
peacefully protesting against Israeli terrorist
savagery in Palestine; more recently, allowing
'90,000' French gendarmes and troops to let
loose tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition
to indiscriminately kill a handful of suspected
'terrorists', supposed hostages and passers-by
alike; and culminating in the assassination
of a respected, senior police officer who refused
to go along with the whole charade. Instead,
visiting Europeans, especially those with long
memories, are reminded of the choreographed
rise of Fascism in the 1930s and will form their
own, non-hashtag conclusions. To the detriment
once again, of the French small business community.

Small online retailers expect sales
Over two thirds (70%) of small and medium-sized
online retailers are expecting sales to increase
in 2015, according to a study carried out by
Royal Mail. This is compared with 61% of retailers
in 2014. Despite the increased optimism, over
three quarters (76%) of retailers surveyed said
they felt competition was more intense now than
it was a year ago. Almost two thirds (63%) said
they planned to increase the number of channels
they used in order to grow sales in 2015, with
a quarter saying they planned to start using
online marketplaces. According to the study,
the majority of retailers (58%) were successful
in achieving an increase in sales in 2014, up
from 49% in 2013. (EnterpriseQuest)

Retailers are being urged to enter a competition

their communities and create jobs in the economy."
The closing date for applications is 30th January

Policy makers urged to support the self-employed.
The Institute for Public Policy Research
(IPPR) has published a report urging the Government
to adjust its policies to suit an increasingly
self-employed workforce. The report calls on
policymakers to assist the self-employed with
training and skills development. According to
the IPPR, self-employed people in the UK tend
to have lower levels of qualifications than
those in paid employment. The IPPR also found
that 40% of the overall increase in UK employment
since 2010 has been due to an increase in self-employment,
which is set to continue. Commenting on the
increase in self-employment levels, IPPR researcher
Izzy Hatfield said: "This could have big
implications for how these workers save for
their pensions, access training to boost their
productivity and ensure that their earnings
keep pace with inflation." (EnterpriseQuest)

A mere 300 troops, wandering aimlessly in
groups of ten around railway stations, aren't
going to do much against 5 million parasites

Taking customers' money but not allowing them
to collect their goods (like Russian warships)
has been the socio-fascist Government's latest
ruse for instilling foreign confidence in investing
and placing contracts in the country. Unfortunately,
it's always the wrong people who are officially
termed 'unemployed' in France as the business
community is forced instead, to support 5 million
uneducated, untrained, bone-idle, social inadequates
called fonctionnaires who do no work by default.

One of those home business reality checks
which never make it into the Government's or
its cronies' propaganda. I've got a friend who
owns an intensive pig farm and it disgusts him
so much, he won't even set foot in the place.

Somebody must have bought to his attention
his earlier stated commitment to 'Jewish values'
and supplying armaments to Israel's Nazi, paedo-terrorist,
land-thieving regime. Will this mean a change
in future Government policy? Will Cameron support
his own country, its economy, its traditions
and community, first? And will The Kippah Party
follow suit? Or does this just mean walking
around taking the Lord's name in vain and repeating
'Oh, my God' umpteen times a day?
