Entrepreneurs among Budget big winners

first_img KCS-content Entrepreneurs among Budget big winners whatsapp Wednesday 23 March 2011 9:10 pm ENTREPRENEURS were among the biggest winners from the Budget, with a raft of measures aimed at encouraging people to invest in their own businesses.The changes, most of which will come into play on 6 April, will include:•A hike in the lifetime limit for entrepreneurs from £5m to £10m.•Relaxation of the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) rules, making it easier to take advantage of capital gains tax (CGT) and income tax relief.•An easing of the conditions necessary to benefit from Venture Capital Trusts (VCT).Osborne announced the lifetime limit for entrepreneur’s relief will double to £10m, greatly increasing the benefits for anyone disposing of shares in their own company.It allows business owners to pay just 10 per cent capital gains tax, instead of the higher threshold of 28 per cent, up to a lifetime limit of £10m, after which they will revert to the higher threshold.To qualify you need to own at least five per cent of the company and have worked there for at least a year. The Treasury estimates the move will cost around £310m over the course of the parliament. The limit was set at £1m just two years ago, rising to £2m in April 2010 and £5m in June 2010.Entrepreneurs will also benefit from a £500 increase in the annual exemption from CGT to £10,600.The Treasury announced the maximum investment to qualify under the EIS will double to £1m and tax relief on both EIS and VCT initiatives will increase from 20 per cent to 30 per cent. The maximum investment in a single company has also risen from £2m to £10m. The size of companies that qualify under both schemes will rise from 50 employees or less to 250 or less, with the gross assets allowed more than doubling from £7m to £15m.Osborne also pledged to consult on ways to make EIS rules simpler by removing more restrictions on which types of investors can apply and which shares qualify.Changes to EIS and VCT rules are designed to make it easier and more lucrative to invest in small businesses.

The architect also the owner of this property wanted a guesthouse in which the rooms can be experienced continuously, therefore it would require a linear corridor.Save this picture!© Mansyur HassanAt the beginning of the design process, the architect arranged the rooms in a line, based on the level of privacy of each room, from the public to private. Consequently, the design would create a thin and long building mass. This building consists of 4 floors, the first to third floors are residential for boarding tenants. While for the fourth floor is the owner area and common area.Save this picture!© Mansyur HassanSave this picture!First Level PlanSave this picture!© Mansyur HassanConsists of 14 rooms that can be rented, 1 cafe room, 1 maid room, 1 public kitchen, 1 public area, 2 bbq areas, 1 pavilion and 8 bathrooms making this building truly efficient every inch.

Reporters Without Borders urges the Commonwealth to expel Zimbabwe

first_img News RSF_en November 12, 2020 Find out more Organisation Follow the news on Zimbabwe ZimbabweAfrica Under a new law on access to information and protection of privacy passed on 31 January this year by the Zimbabwean parliament, all journalists now have to have official accreditation that must be renewed each year by a government commission. Those who do not comply risk up to two years in prison and a fine of 100,000 Zimbabwe dollars (about € 2,000). Foreign journalists will be allowed to work in the country only for a limited time and only after they have been approved by the Zimbabwean embassy in their own country. The Zimbabwean authorities are attacking both local and foreign journalists with impunity. Arrests and threats are continual and the independent press is having more and more difficulty informing the public. Zimbabwe no longer respects the ideals of democracy and the rule of law on which the Commonwealth was founded. The 1995 Millbrook Declaration provides for sanctions against member-states who persistently violate human rights. February 27, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders urges the Commonwealth to expel Zimbabwe September 1, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (Reporters Sans Frontières – RSF), an international organisation that defends press freedom, has addressed letters to the eight members of the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group (CMAG) to draw their attention to the situation in Zimbabwe on the eve of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Coolum, Australia, from 2 to 5 March 2002. The president and his ministers are multiplying explosive statements against the independent media. The Daily News, the country’s only privately-owned daily paper, is being repeatedly harassed by the authorities. Its editor-in-chief has been arrested several times in recent years. The government and the ruling ZANU-PF party have taken many legal proceedings against the paper and sought large sums in damages in an effort to financially cripple it. Early this month, the paper’s offices in Bulawayo were attacked. Help by sharing this information Reports News ZimbabweAfrica RSF asked the eight ministers of Foreign affairs of the CMAG (Australia, Bangladesh, Barbados, Botswana, Canada, Malaysia, Nigeria and United-Kingdom) to call for the expulsion of Zimbabwe at the forthcoming Heads of Government Meeting. The organisation noted that Zimbabwe is presently one of the countries in Africa with the harshest attitude to press freedom. About 30 journalists have been arrested since January last year, others have been threatened or attacked and several foreign journalists have been expelled from the country. Many foreign correspondents have not managed to get visas to cover the March 9-10 presidential election. President Robert Mugabe is on a world-wide list of 39 “predators of press freedom” that Reporters Without Borders has drawn up.

These exhibits will be on view through December 14, 2014.In Expanding on an expansive subject, John Burtle broadens the physical and perceptual boundaries of landscape painting, a genre with imagery that goes on forever in all directions, by creating a walk-in environment/ecosystem bound by the framework of the room in which it resides.Burtle’s The Room is a Frame and/or An Accumulated Anthrome is the thrid of the nine part painting series entitled Expanding on an expansive subject organized by Sinéad Finnerty-Pyne.Attunement pays tribute to artists who function on multiple frequencies. They flow through worlds, above boundaries, under surfaces, around obstacles and inhabit the spaces in-between. They communicate on multiple channels, and their work can be defined as exceptionally rich, layered, complex, and in some ways “off the charts.” In order to appreciate the messages fully, we must “tune in” to the ranges of expression that continue infinitesimally through space and time.Exhibiting artists include; Esther Belin, York Chang, Mercedes Dorame, Nery Gabriel Lemus, Gary Garay, Salomón Huerta, Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia, Khalid Hussein, Annapurna Kumar, Trang T. Le, Anthony Lepore, Dan Taulapapa McMullin, Fiamma Montezemolo, Amitis Motevalli, Ellie Parker, Gala Porras-Kim, Miko Revereza, Shizu Saldamando, Frohawk Two Feathers, Perry Vasquez, Samira Yamin, and Brenna Youngblood.Standing in one space looking into another are handmade painted sculptures inspired by Torbjörn Vejvi’s childhood reflections. The installation attempts to control and minimize the chaos of memory and emotion, sparse and scattered when interpreted from an adult perspective, through a balance of abstraction and realness.Vejvi represents fragmented narratives such as that of a grown man living in his parent’s attic, unable to interact with passersby below, to another of a cryptic castle turned museum where rooms were staged to show the former splendor of past inhabitants. These scenarios are portrayed through playful, mysterious depictions that are personal, social, and psychological in nature. It is through these recollections that Vejvi simulates the unstable yet fluid negotiations between past experience and memory.This installation is part of the continuing independent programming of Alice Könitz’s Los Angeles Museum of Art (LAMOA), currently occupying the Armory’s Caldwell Gallery as part of The Fifth Wall: Tom Friedman, Evan Holloway, Farrah Karapetian, Alice Könitz, Marco Rios, Corinna Schnitt, Artur Å»mijewski. The Fifth Wall and the rotating exhibits inside LAMOA is made possible by a grant from the Pasadena Art Alliance.The opening reception for these three exhibits will be held on Saturday, November 1 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Armory, 145 N.

Slow council payment putting pressure on contractors

first_imgPrint NewsSlow council payment putting pressure on contractorsBy Staff Reporter – December 29, 2013 594 WhatsApp Facebook Watch the streamed gig for Fergal Nash album launch Linkedin Previous articleWoman dramatically rescued from Limerick fireNext articleMovement on Adare bypass Staff Reporter by Alan JacquesSign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up [email protected] city council has been asked to speed up payments to local contractors who are being left out of pocket for weeks after completing jobs.Limerick Fianna Fail TD Willie O’Dea says he has been contacted by a number of local builders who have completed City Council grant-aided work for householders without receiving payment.He described the situation as “disgraceful” and insisted that the Council should be part of the Government push to create employment and assist small businesses with cash flow issues.“Contractors have been left with serious cash flow problems because the City Council are extremely slow about paying once the contract is completed. In some cases, the contractors have completed several contracts without payment and are asked to do even more jobs before they receive a penny,”he claimed.“All of these contractors have to pay wages and purchase materials with no credit from suppliers long before they get paid by the Council. As a result, these contractors are encountering serious cash flow issues.“One contractor suggested to me that his cash flow situation was so bad he would have to take out a credit union loan to get through Christmas. Unfortunately, it’s another example of paying only lip service to the needs of the small and medium enterprise sector,” he said.One local contractor who carried out work for the City Council onseveral occasions told the Limerick Post that this issue was an “on-going problem”.The contractor, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of losing further contracts with the Council, said the situation was putting unnecessary pressure and worry on his business.“I can’t understand why it’s taking seven to eight weeks to receive payment and why the Council don’t pay the contractor directly. The cheque is sent to the person in council housing that we carry out the work for and then the onus is on them to pay us. It’s a bizarre situation.“I first have to pay thousands of euro out of my own pocket on materials and wages. There have been emergency situations where I’ve have had to go to the Credit Union and take out money because of the delay in payment from City Council.“Up to a few days ago when a cheque finally arrived, it was looking like I would have to take it out of the Credit Union to get through Christmas. The Council should pay the contractor directly and sooner,” said one angry contractor.There was no comment from Limerick City Council at the time of going to press.

Notably, taking a progressive stance on the case, the court also interacted with the woman and her husband, and directed that steps may be taken at the earliest for dissolution of the marriage.”An adult woman cannot be forced to stay with her marital or parental family against her wishes,” the Court said.The brief facts of the case are that the petitioner is a lesbian woman who had been married against her wishes to a man and was threatened to be “cured” of her sexual orientation. She escaped from her marital home on Mar 7, 2021 and sought the assistance of ANHAD – an NGO in New Delhi. She was then provided temporary shelter at a safe house run by another NGO, but her family members reached the premises of the safe house and asked for the Petitioner to be handed over to them.In clear terms the court has directed that no NGO members should be harassed or harmed for helping the woman and said that the woman is at liberty to shift to a different location if she so pleases. The Delhi Police has been directed to take all necessary steps to provide protection to the woman at her new location.The woman was represented by Adv.Vrinda Grover and Delhi Police was represented by Standing Counsel Rahul Mehra.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
