Forecasts for growth in Germany and France were cut from two per cent to 1.1 per cent and 1.5 per cent to 0.7 per cent respectively. By contrast, its forecast for the UK was raised to 2.7 per cent, from 2.5 per cent in May.Growth in the wider European Union doesn’t look much better: the EC said it expects GDP in the 28-country bloc to rise 1.3 per cent this year, down from 1.6 per cent expected in May, rising to 1.5 per cent in 2015, down from two per cent.Its forecast for inflation in the eurozone was similarly anaemic: the EC said it expects inflation in the region to peak at 0.5 per cent this year, rising slightly to 0.8 per cent next year and 1.5 per cent the year after.Pierre Moscovici, the EC’s commissioner for economic and financial affairs, taxation and customs, warned recovery will be a long, slow process.There is no single, simple answer to the challenges facing the European economy. We need to act across three fronts: for credible fiscal policies, ambitious structural reforms and much-needed investment, both public and private. We must all assume our responsibilities, in Brussels, in national capitals and in our regions, to generate higher growth and deliver a real boost to employment for our citizens.

Pets at Home’s groom rooms help retailer’s profits jump to £40m

first_imgThursday 4 December 2014 8:52 pm Kasmira Jefford Pets at Home’s groom rooms help retailer’s profits jump to £40m whatsapp  Doting pet lovers spoiling their pooches and cats helped Pets at Home deliver a 10.2 per cent jump in sales to  £381.5m in the six months to October. The retailer, which provides pet food, accessories and veterinary services from around 400 outlets, has doubled its profits to £40.5m from £21.3m in the first half of last year thanks to owners spending more on their pets.  The pet care market has grown by almost £1bn in the past five years and is now worth an eye-watering £6bn, according to a recent study conducted by the firm, with grooming and insurance making up half of the market.  “Pet-lovers are treating their pets as they would themselves, whether that’s through an improved diet or treating them to a visit to a groomer,” chief executive Nick Wood said.  During the period, Pets at Home op­ened 23 Groom Rooms – salons where pets can receive treatments such as a bath and a blow dry – bringing the total portfolio to 152. Another 600,000 members signed up to its VIP club, a loyalty scheme for pampered pets, taking its members to 2.6m.  These services, together with its growing vet practices and its Advan­ced Nutrition pet food helped to boost like-for-like sales by 4.2 per cent in the period, the company said.  “We end the first half in a strong financial position, the business remains very cash generative and we are pleased to announce our first dividend payment,” Wood said. It announced a dividend of 1.8p per share, its first since floating on the London Stock Exchange earlier this year. Shares yesterday edged down last night to 201p. HOW THE PETS RETAILER IS BARKING UP THE RIGHT TREE BY CATERING TO PAMPERED POOCHES Pets at Home’s 152 groom rooms are a blur of bright green, pink and blue equipped with raised tables, hair dryers, nail clippers, soap buckers and sponges.  Tucked away at the back of the stores, these grooming parlours offer VIP treatments for dogs, from a traditional bath and dry to a £15 pawdicure – a pedicure for dogs that includes a “fragrant spray and a paw pad wax to keep them strutting happy”. A full groom, which includes a warm bath, hair styling and ear cleaning, can keep pet groomers busy for a good two and a half hours and costs between £20 to £80, depending on the size of the dog. Pay £8 extra and pets are treated to luxury shampoo, a teeth clean and a “natural breath freshening foam”.  Even cats can come to the parlours and get a lion trim and shave for £67.

Cold snaps cost the economy £2.5bn, says Cebr research on UK weather’s impact

first_img Show Comments ▼ Freezing temperatures are not just bad for your bones, but cost the UK billions of pounds in lost productivity and output having the most severe impact on the economy than any other type of weather.Just a single degree drop in the minimum average temperature costs the UK economy £2.5bn, and has a worse effect than even snow, flooding or heat waves. Periods of extreme cold weather have lowered quarterly GDP growth by 0.6 percentage points since 2005, according to research by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) which looked at economic growth and weather over the last decade.Cold weather causes GDP to take a hit from lower output across more industries than other adverse weather conditions, as well as from lost productivity through poor conditions affecting transport and the number of people making it into work.A single degree rise in the minimum average temperature no only makes people feel a bit cosier, it nets the economy an extra £66m, as does each day of extra sunshine to the tune of £12m.For each day of additional frost, the economy loses £103m, while, conversely, low levels of frost can add £51m to the economy.Each additional day of 10mm of rainfall reduces quarterly GDP by £86m, according to the Cebr research commissioned by cloud company 8×8 Solutions, but 10mm less rainfall than average benefits the economy by £22m.Every cold cloud has a silver lining, however.IT and communications suffered the least from the effects of cold weather and, in fact, experienced positive growth during poor weather, the only sector to benefit from the conditions. This is largely due to the high use of cloud computing in the industry which allows employees to continue working at home, according to the Cebr.Nearly two-thirds of IT and communications businesses use some form of cloud technology, compared to between 15 and 30 per cent of other businesses.Professional services are also mitigating the effects of a cold snap through remote working, while smaller businesses are more at risk from poor weather and hit harder than larger companies due to their lack of connectivity.“Many small offices are unprepared for such events as they often lack remote access to their work due to security concerns and a lack of infrastructure.” said the Cebr’s head of UK macroeconomics Scott Corfe.“This is compounded in many cases by inadequate internet connections or computing power at staff homes. In addition SMEs tend to suffer more than their larger counterparts who can spread the setup and maintenance costs of remote working infrastructure across many more staff.” Cold snaps cost the economy £2.5bn, says Cebr research on UK weather’s impact whatsapp Lynsey Barber center_img Wednesday 4 March 2015 4:52 am Share whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Still only paid by a small number of people, rapidly rising house prices have seen ever growing numbers of people dragged into the inheritance tax net. In the wake of George Osborne’s final Budget of the Parliament, a YouGov poll found that inheritance tax, dubbed by the Tories as the “death tax”, was the most unpopular tax among voters of all parties.Close to 60 per cent of voters think the tax is unfair compared with just 22 per cent who think it’s fair. The only taxes that came close to being as unpopular as inheritance tax were fuel duty and the BBC licence fee.It’s been widely reported that the Tories plan to put raising the inheritance tax threshold to £1m at the heart of their General Election tax pledges. Inheritance tax holds close to a talismanic status among Conservative politicians and strategists.George Osborne’s pledge to cut this death tax at the party’s 2007 conference was widely credited with giving the Conservatives a bounce in the polls and scaring Gordon Brown out of calling an election he was likely to win.  last_img read more

Game Digital share price tumbles as profit falls and CFO steps down

first_img whatsapp Tuesday 24 March 2015 5:54 am Share Show Comments ▼ Game Digital share price tumbles as profit falls and CFO steps down Game Digital’s share price slumped more than seven per cent in early morning trading on Tuesday after announcing a hefty fall in profits in its maiden interim results.The company’s chief finance officer Benedict Smith, who helped oversee its listing on the London Stock Exchange last year, will step down later this year. The figuresAdjusted operating profit for the 26 weeks ended 24 January 2015 fell 18.5 per cent to £39.2m from £48.1m a year earlier. A similar drop was recorded in earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization came in at £43m – 16.2 per cent down from last year’s £51.3m. Overall revenue fell marginally to £582.1 as did gross profit which dropped 1.6 per cent to £135.2m. Despite all the bad news however, shareholders were treated to a special dividend of £25m – equivalent to 14.7 pence per share – which Game said was supported by strong cash generation. The group’s adjusted operational cash flow jumped 45.8 per cent to £66.9m. Investors were also told the full-year earnings and profit are still expected to fall within the range of current market expectations. Why it’s interestingMore bad news for Game Digital investors who saw the company drop out of the FTSE 250 last night and suffered a huge 50 per cent drop in its share price when a severe profit warning was announced in January. That warning was put down to disappointing holiday period sales, although overall sales for the half year were only slightly down. So Game is now restructuring as it attempts to get to the next level. After eSports company Multiplay was acquired earlier this month, the group will split into three separate divisions: GAME Retail, GAME eSports and Events, and GAME Digital Solutions. Game says it expects market activity to pick up over Easter thanks to some “key titles”, which include an exclusive release of Final Fantasy Type-O HD. Shareholders will be hoping the title is not fitting of the company’s prediction.What Game Digital saidThe video games market in the UK has started 2015 more slowly than we anticipated, however we continue to maintain our strong market shares and expect activity in the UK to pick up in the coming weeks, driven by promotional campaigns around Easter and the launch of a number of key titles.In shortGame Digital stock continues to take a battering as the company restructures and tackles a slow-moving market. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailForbesThese 10 Colleges Have Produced The Most Billionaire AlumniForbeszenherald.com20 Rules Genghis Khan’s Army Had To Live Byzenherald.comNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableyMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesFinancial 10See The Wife Of The World’s Richest BillionairesFinancial 10ComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedyDefinitionThe Most Famous Movie Filmed In Every U.S. StateDefinition whatsapp Joe Hall Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Anything earned abroad is taxed in that country, unless it is brought to the UK.Q That does not sound unreasonable. Why is it being changed?A The problem is that most British citizens living here do pay UK tax on their overseas income. There are some offsets to make sure they do not pay tax twice on the same income, but the effect of non-dom rules is that some foreigners pay less than Brits, living in the same place. Q What do the different parties want to do about it?A In 2008 Labour looked at scrapping the non-dom rules, but kept it for fear of driving rich foreigners away. Instead, a levy was introduced to charge non-doms resident in the UK for more than seven years £30,000 per year. The Tories looked at this and came to the same conclusion, hiking the rate of the levy.Q What has changed now?A In short, the election. Labour is fighting on grounds of living standards and fairness. Telling rich foreigners to pay more tax chimes with that. Instead of paying a levy, they will have to pay more tax. If the Conservatives oppose the change, it makes them look like they are on the side of the global rich.Q So what effect will these changes have?A Ed Miliband hopes it will raise hundreds of millions of pounds from a few thousand rich folk. However, they might just move to another country, which could reduce the government’s tax take.

Then Doctors Realized SomethingOpulent Express Share Clydesdale Bank has been slapped with the largest PPI-related fine in the FCA’s history – nearly £20.7m – for “serious failings” in the way it handled complaints.The bank implemented “inappropriate policies” and provided false information to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) between May 2011 and July 2013, the FCA said.  Because of the way complaints were handled, up to 42,200 out of a total of 126,600 may have been unfairly rejected, while a further 50,9000 upheld complaints may have resulted in “inadequate redress” for the customer.  The FOS had requested evidence of Clydesdale’s records on PPI sold to individual customers, but a team altered some of the printouts to make it look as though the bank had no relevant documents, and deleted all PPI information from a separate print out that listed the products sold to the customer.  The wrongdoing was carried out by “a team withint Clydesdale’s PPI complaint handling operation”  – senior management were not aware of the matter, the FCA said. Clydesdale settled at an early stage of the investigation, reducing the fine by 30 per cent from a £29.5m penalty. Georgina Philippou, acting director of enforcement and market oversight at the FCA said: “Clydesdale’s failings were unacceptable and fell well below the standard the FCA expects.   “The fact that Clydesdale misled the Financial Ombudsman by providing false information about the information it held is particularly serious and this is reflected in the size of the fine. “We have been very clear about how firms should treat customers who may have been mis-sold PPI.  In ignoring documents it held which were relevant to its customers’ complaints, Clydesdale failed to treat its customers fairly.” Clydesdale will review all PPI complaints handled prior to August 2014 and offering redress to any customers impacted by these failings. Clydesdale will be contacting all affected customers in due course. last_img read more
