Tory’s flagship housing policy will not get Britain building again, say MPs

first_imgThe government’s recently-launched flagship housing policy to get ‘Britain building’ has been heavily criticised by senior MPs today, including members of May’s own party, and also that the Stamp Duty changes for first time buyers will “distort” the property market.The Treasury Select Committee believes both the abolition of Stamp Duty for properties bought by first-time buyers worth up to £300,000, and the easing of the local council borrowing cap to build homes, do not go far enough and will  not achieve the 300,00-a-year new homes a year the government thinks it will.The Committee also says the Stamp Duty will create a ‘cliff edge’ at the £500,000 price point because the new rules enable the duty to be avoided by first time buyers on properties up to that value, although only on the first £300,000.“A house worth £500,000 will attract £5,000 less in SDLT than a house worth £500,001,” the Committee report says.Housing cliff edge“When the previous Government redesigned [Stamp Duty] to remove ‘cliff edges’ faced at certain property values, the then Chancellor said that he had reformed a ‘badly designed system that has distorted our housing market for decades’.“It is regrettable that the abolition of SDLT for first-time buyers reintroduces a cliff edge into the SDLT schedule.”The committee also endorsed a recent Office for Budget Responsibility statement that the Stamp Duty changes would only enable an extra 3,500 first time buyers to get on the property ladder.“In isolation, the reduction in stamp duty is likely to increase prices for first-time buyers by as much, if not more, than the amount they save as a reduction in stamp duty,” the OBR report said.Also, the reduced borrowing cap for local councils, to enable them to build more homes and introduced by Phillip Hammond during his November Budget speech, is also criticised by the committee.“The increase in the cap on borrowing for local authorities to build homes is a step in the right direction, but it doesn’t go far enough,” said Conservative MP and Treasury Committee chair Nicky Morgan (pictured, left). Nicky Morgan MP sdlt stamp duty Treasury Select Committee January 22, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Ministry of Cake ploughs through growth target

first_imgCake and desserts manufacturer Ministry of Cake has smashed its targets one year after becoming independent as it achieves 25% growth year-on-year. Managing director Chris Ormrod sold the Taunton-based business to convenience food producer Greencore in 2008 and last year bought it back, before opening a second site named Ministry of Pudding in Torquay in October.He told British Baker the business was in 25% growth year-on-year.“I think we will see similar growth this year,” he said. “We are looking at new contracts and have [recently] won a new contract.“I think we will be nearer £30m this year and mid-30s next year – we had expected to be closer to £25m this year. We thought that, over a four-year period, we’d get to £30m – we didn’t expect it to happen in one.”The business now employs around 285 people, which has risen from 220 a year ago.Market is recoveringOrmrod explained the company’s success: “We have good NPD, a good commercial team and strong customers. I think the market is coming back up and there are more people eating out. We are seeing some quite interesting growth in key customer areas, such as coffee shops. We took a big decision a year ago to invest heavily in NPD – probably more than the industry average – and that is showing now.”The business has also done more in Europe than before and is still considering the viability of exporting or investing in a base overseas. It regularly gets business enquiries from Europe, with customers coming from countries including Russia, Spain, France and the Netherlands.“The worry is that we might end up growing too fast and I want to make sure we grow at the speed we can manage.“We are actively looking at other businesses we might want to acquire going forward. There are lots of small bakery businesses that are at the stage where they are not going to grow any further, which we might be able to help them with.”Ministry of Cake and Ministry of Pudding have several major customers and covers most of the major chains in the UK.last_img read more

Selling with your ears: The art of social listening

first_img 51SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Sales people frequently opt for talking about their processes, tweeting about their products, and blogging about their expertise. While all of these messages offer good points, to really be successful at selling, we must close our mouths, perk up our ears, and hear what our audience is saying.Social listening is key to pinpointing our hot prospects and turning them into leads, then customers. Social listening is the act of identifying opportunities to gain the attention of buyers who are experiencing pain points that need to be addressed, unhappy with their current vendor, or ready to make a purchase. Successful social listening leads prospects away from your competitors by showing your what they seek, and the kind of experience they expect.Handily implement social selling into your overall strategy in these six easy steps.First, understand “who?” You won’t be able to listen successfully until you know who you are supposed to listen to. Properly pinpoint your target buyers on the front end, as well as your main competitors. Without doing this, you waste time on meaningless chatter from buyers and competitors irrelevant to you.Then, know “what?” should perk your ears up. Designate certain key actions that, if heard, spur your attention. A target prospect mentioning their pain points, customer service issues, or asking questions about a product can all be leveraged into a way to connect with them.You also need to pinpoint “when?” to take action. Specific messages, events, or language are keys to knowing when to act on the information you glean from your social listening efforts. continue reading »last_img read more

Small businesses get subsidies, loan relief

first_imgThe government will subsidize and ease loan interest payments for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), the backbone of the Indonesian economy, as they struggle to stay afloat amid the COVID-19 pandemic.The subsidies will cover loan interest ranging from 2 to 6 percent for up to six months for millions of borrowers in the MSME category. The government will also roll out working capital credit for MSMEs, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo announced on Wednesday.“The emergency working capital assistance will need to be carefully designed so MSMEs can really access this emergency capital assistance scheme,” Jokowi told an online briefing after a Cabinet meeting. Around 41 million MSMEs have access to credit from financial institutions while 23 million are not bankable. Indonesia’s more than 60 million MSMEs, which account for 60 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP) of Southeast Asia’s largest economy, are struggling to stay afloat with travel and social restrictions to contain the coronavirus severely affecting their income. Their operations are either closed or limited and many workers have been laid off or furloughed.Read also: ‘Jamu’ to protective gear: Producers of most-wanted products facing business disruptionFinance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said the government would cover 6 percent of the interest and suspend loan repayments, for six months, for ultra-micro businesses under the government’s UMi and Mekaar programs, as well as state pawnshop Pegadaian customers.Micro businesses and government microloan program (KUR) borrowers with loans between Rp 10 million and Rp 500 million will also get interest subsidies covering 6 percent for the first three months and 3 percent for the next three months. SMEs with loans between Rp 500 million and Rp 10 billion will get interest subsidies covering 3 percent for the first three months and 2 percent for the next three months. Both categories will also be able to delay their loan repayments for six months.Government subsidies for MSMEs. (JP/Hengky Wijaya).Usage: 0 (JP/Hengky Wijaya)“This program is part of the government’s efforts to defend MSMEs’ financial capabilities,” Sri Mulyani said after the Cabinet meeting. “If this can work, then the COVID-19 economic impact on society can be minimized.”The government will help micro businesses to pay their loan interest for businesses borrowing up to Rp 500 million from rural banks and for those borrowing Rp 500 million to RP 10 billion from conventional banks. It will also relieve interest payments for MSMEs that borrowed from the KUR program, Sri Mulyani said.The government has allocated Rp 150 trillion for business recovery programs within its Rp 405.1 trillion extra spending for COVID-19 efforts, focusing on health and social spending as well as economic stimulus packages. The earlier stimulus packages covered tax waivers and deferrals for almost all business sectors and individual taxpayers.“The government will push for transparency, accountability and professionalism to avoid moral hazard,” Coordinating Economic Minister Airlangga Hartarto told reporters during the same press briefing. “This stimulus is prioritized for those affected by the coronavirus pandemic.”There are several prerequisites for MSMEs to be eligible for the new stimulus package, including a good track record on loan repayments and tax payments. They must be verified by banks and not included in the Financial Services Authority’s (OJK) black list.Read also: Medicine prices could soar 60% on raw material disruptionThe Association of Young Indonesian Businesspeople (Hipmi) head for micro, small and medium businesses Rano Wiharta said that the government must oversee the regulation tightly, calling for banks to be “more serious” in helping MSMEs.“We appreciate the government’s stimulus measures but the most important thing is that the implementation process needs to be in line with this policy,” Rano told The Jakarta Post, adding that MSMEs often found difficulties in restructuring their loans.“We are bleeding right now especially entering the Ramadan month,” Rano said, referring to the Islamic fasting period between April 24 and May 22. “We are hoping that this policy will be followed by better implementation, especially in banks.”Rano said that many MSMEs could not get new loans from banks during the virus crisis, adding that the government must examine the issue to help save local companies.The Indonesian Travel Agents Association (Astindo) secretary-general Pauline Suharno voiced a similar view, saying that previous government’s credit incentives were not effective because of botched implementation, calling for the government to ensure that businesses could receive the incentives.“We think that this could be good, but only if the government and private lenders can implement it,” Pauline, who works in the badly hit tourist sector, told the Post.Contacted separately, Perbanas Institute economist Piter Abdullah welcomed the government’s decision to roll out such incentives for MSMEs but said that “it would not be enough” to help businesses’ cashflow.“This will help them to survive, but the government still needs to formulate stronger incentives to really boost their negative cashflow.”Topics :last_img read more

Penberthy is a shooting specialist who comes from New Orleans and has experience working with Davis, Rajon Rondo and DeMarcus Cousins from their time with the Pelicans. Crawford worked for Vogel in Orlando before going to Charlotte last season. The only returner, Simon has notably developed a strong relationship with Kyle Kuzma over the past two seasons.Related Articles Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs The two-and-half month process to outfit the rest of the Lakers’ new coaching staff is complete.The team officially announced the six coaches who will round out the bench for Frank Vogel, who is embarking on his first season with the Lakers this fall. It will include former head coaches Jason Kidd and Lionel Hollins; longtime Cleveland assistant and recent Raptors assistant Phil Handy; former Lakers guard and shooting coach Mike Penberthy; a previous Vogel disciple Quinton Crawford; and returning assistant Miles Simon.While many of the names have been previously reported – Kidd and Hollins have been known since May – the announcement brings a full picture of the minds Vogel will be working with as the Lakers attempt to get back into the playoffs after a six-year absence. The expectations are rising for a team that made a splash with the trade for Anthony Davis, then constructed a veteran-laden roster around the All-Star big man and returning star LeBron James.The coaching room will boast a considerable amount of experience: Notably, Kidd (Nets and Bucks) and Hollins (Grizzlies and Nets) have been head coaches before.

The 46-year-old spent the last year studying other teams and styles while preparing for his next coaching job – and the Lakers hope the variety of experience on his staff helps diversify and strengthen a group with championship-level ambitions.The Lakers have also officially announced the additions of Greg St. Jean (player development/advance scout), Dru Anthrop (video coordinator/player development) and Jon Pastorek (assistant video coordinator).
