Cut in stamp duty has only really benefited London, says Zoopla

Property website says sales jumped by 27% in first two weeks of stamp duty holiday

The government’s stamp duty cut to reboot Britain’s virus-stricken property market has benefited London most and had little impact elsewhere so far, according to Zoopla.

In a reflection of the disproportionate benefit for wealthier buyers, the property website said that agreed house sales in the capital jumped by 27% in the first two weeks of the stamp duty holiday.

Taxing matter of solving the social care crisis | Letters

Readers respond to the news that the over-40s would start contributing towards the cost of care in later life under plans being considered by ministers

Here’s a mad idea: why not have a well-staffed department devoted to ensuring the super-wealthy pay their taxes in full (Over-40s in UK to pay more tax under plans to fix social care crisis, 26 July)? Maybe legislation could be brought in to close tax loopholes and ensure they face penalties from, say, substantial fines to prison sentences if they don’t? Even crazier – why not bring in progressive tax rates that would rise in a stepped way? Another ludicrous idea: instead of Jeremy Corbyn’s radical goal of less than 30% tax on them, why not the completely sensible levels of Thatcher’s era of 35%-plus?

Imagine a world in which the very wealthy actually paid their fair share instead of systematically extracting wealth from the nation and squirrelling it away. In one year, this country would resolve the debts of most public services. But then I guess that would make it obvious to everyone that the rightwing talking points of the postwar era around taxes and financial responsibility have always been a sham.

Redundancy during coronavirus: what are my rights and what should I do with my money?

Further job losses seem likely when the UK furlough scheme ends – but advice is available

Every day the coronavirus-related job loss announcements mount up. British Airways is looking at axing possibly 12,000 posts; Boots is to cut 4,000, Pret a Manger 1,000, the owners of Upper Crust and Ritazza another 5,000. Airbus is talking of 1,700, Royal Mail 2,000 and Swissport, which handles airline baggage, about 4,500. When the furlough scheme ends, economists fear another huge wave of redundancies. We look at your rights and what you can expect financially.

Payouts are based on your pay, age and length of time in the job

But it’s not just the job you lose. We were so close at work; it was like a family

Video witnessing of wills to be made legal in England and Wales during pandemic

Change in law forced by Covid-19 backdated to 31 January to ensure last wishes are fulfilled

Video witnessing of wills is to be made legal in England and Wales to make it easier for people to record their final wishes during the coronavirus pandemic.

Existing law requires a will to be made “in the presence of” at least two witnesses but stipulations on isolating and shielding during lockdown have led some people to turn to video platforms such as Zoom and FaceTime instead.

One in 10 born in 80s to inherit more than half average lifetime earnings

Report shows wealth passed down in the UK now determines how well-off people will become

As many as one in 10 of UK adults born in the 1980s will inherit more than half as much money from their parents as the average person earns in a lifetime, according to a new report by one of the nation’s leading economics thinktanks.

The Institute for Fiscal Studies said wealth passed down from one generation to the next was fast-becoming the most important determinant of how well-off people will become.

Is a bill for council tax empty homes premium correct?

Grandparents are being charged for time the house was uninhabited – but they didn’t own it then

Q I am writing to you in the hope you can help clarify and maybe help us with a dispute with West Lancashire borough council regarding the empty homes premium. My grandparents (for whom I hold power of attorney) have recently moved to west Lancashire to be close to me and my wife.

Upon completion of the purchase of their new home they were issued with a council tax bill that includes a surcharge for the empty homes premium. It turns out the property had been empty for more than two years as the previous owner had been moved to a nursing home and my grandparents are being charged for the time it was uninhabited even though they did not own the property at the time.
