Suzy.Q.231

Apparently yes, you can switch suppliers with a Smart Meter but it can lose its functionality as they are the 1st Generation Of Smart Meters and when you switch suppliers your Meter reverts back to a ‘ Traditional ‘ Meter. This is on Ofgem’s website. Your choice, but legally you DON’T have to install a Smart Meter. There are a lot of reports of it affecting people’s health too. Just Google! 8)

OFGEM 2018 - I have a smart meter. Can I shop around and switch supplier? If you have a smart meter, you can shop around and switch supplier as you did with your previous traditional meter.

There is an app from https://know-yourcar.co.uk/ on Android (and probably iOS) - it's really good, I use that to check my MOT and TAX and INSURANCE. I added my Dad's car too and was able to remind them when their items were due. The best bit - I could see when my dad's car passed or failed MOT, with the failure, I could see WHY it failed.

Toptrumpet

Just an excuse to ‘bump’ this thread really, but yesterday I had an email from Land Registry with a 6 month Property Alert Activity Update, listing all the properties I’m monitoring and if any activity has been a recorded against them. Another good tool to remind owners to update their preferences etc.

Newbold

That's an odd argument. By the same premise it could be argued that you're to some extent responsible if you don't use the monitoring service! Both arguments are of little vailidity though.

Toptrumpet

I’ve had the alert on 2 of 5 properties I’m currently signed up to have monitored. Of course it is your responsibility to act on the notification and contact Land Registry or whoever has made the enquiry and triggered the notification to be sent, to ascertain the exact reason Land Registry has been contacted if the alert is unexpected. Not sure the word ‘liable’ is correct more ‘diligent’ as it’s up to you how you interpret the seriousness of the notification and action it

Jaybeam

What happens though if for whatever reason you don’t get the alert or you missed it ( social media swamps people with alerts of all kinds) your’re on holiday it’s Friday night... things do go wrong, surely, you are liable to some extent by electing to monitor the property.

Toptrumpet

It’s not just your home you can have alerts for, you can choose any property. For example, if an elderly neighbour went into a home and the house stood empty, then that would be a prime property to use in a fraud.

Claim for Damage to Your Vehicle from Potholes / Damaged Roads

Claim for Damage to Your Vehicle from Potholes / Damaged Roads
You may be able to claim compensation if your vehicle has been damaged by a road. The organisation you contact depends on where the road is and the type of road.
TheLondonCyclist

Just sitting here laughing to my self reading people using the term "road tax." Really? Electric cars don't even pay VED aka Road Tax (abolished many, many years ago), yet everyone goes on about bicycles paying VED. It's weird. Also, most serious cyclists do have insurance, as our bikes can cost more than a lot of cars on the roads (the things damaging the roads to begin with.) Roads are maintained by the Council Tax, not your VED. Sit there and play the fool, it will eventually die off, but you know and I know the council tax is what maintains roads and your VED is subject to your certain vehicle.

dougster79

Yep, sent photos of the pothole and trlyre damage to them. Pothole is on the crest of a hill at a speed chicane so extremely difficult to avoid as you don't see it until late. They're basically stating it was acceptable 2 months prior to the incident. That's garbage as everyone knows this area is a nightmare for potholes. Even taxi drivers try to avoid the area. Glasgows roads are particularly bad and the council obviously want to stop losing money and are playing hard ball now.

Kyballion

When did the incident occur? Do you have any photos of the road and damage? If not it will be hard for you to prove anything. If you do have photos of the road and it's condition at the time of the incident, they will be in a worst position as they have stated they inspected the road. Next time this happens, take a photo of the road condition. But don't give up, explain to them that due to the condition of the road, you are at loss. Common law jurisdiction protects humans from lose at another. The road condition was impossible to avoid without causing a potential hazard. Yes they are not expected to be able to repair every single issue at any given time, but if they inspected the road and did not see anything then either it wasn't there, or they did not notice it. I always end up winning against these things, Whether it's PCNs, speeding tickets or other fines. I never pay for these things, recently got a PCN for a suspended bay cancelled too.

dougster79

Thanks for some guidance on this. They came back to me as per below and stated they are not liable. Unbelievable! "As previously advised the City under the terms of the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984, the Council is required to establish and adhere to a reasonable system of inspection and maintenance. They are therefore obliged to carry out regular inspections and repair any potentially hazardous defects identified as a result of these inspections, or that may be subsequently brought to their attention by a member of the public. They cannot be, and are not, expected to keep all footways and carriageways in perfect condition at all times. Whilst we note your comments regarding the stretch of road concerned as advised in our letter of 09/05/18 prior to your accident on 25/01/2018 the road had been inspected on 01/12/2017 and no defect was noted at the area concerned. As Glasgow City Council has implemented and adhered to their reasonable system of inspection and maintenance, and as they cannot reasonably be expected to predict where or when a particular surface may deteriorate to the point where it poses a potential hazard to members of the public, we are still unable to conclude that they can be considered to have failed in their duty or be deemed negligent. As a result, we are unable to either accept liability or make an offer of settlement." I've taken your advice and requested all the relevant information they have of inspections and repairs to the road. This I've advised will be used in legal proceedings. So frustrated at them, im not trying to scam anyone but why should I have to keep forking out for new tyres/re-alignments because this particular roads has more craters than the moon. While i accept they cannot be aware of every pothole they should at least use something half durable when carrying out repairs and not something that vanishes within a month.

Tangy1985

Claiming against the council for Pothole related damage would, if you're successful, come from the same budget assigned to repair the roads. If there's less budget because of claims, there's less to repair the potholes and more claims as a result. A vicious circle surely? Furthermore, road tax goes to central government and is assigned to Highways England/Scotland to maintain motorways and trunk roads, it does not go towards maintaining local networks. Finally, all carriageways and footways are inspected on a routine basis by law. If no defects are found during these inspections, you are unlikely to be entitled to any reimbursement following damage that may occur after the inspection date. Afterall, it is not possible for all highways to be inspected on a daily basis so not knowing the potholes existed is a very fair and understandable response to counter a claim. My advice is to drive slower and to the road conditions, which includes both weather and road quality conditions.

Sadly not - "You can’t claim tax relief for everyday clothing (even if you wear it for work).". I expect it has to be a piece of clothing issued by the company or that you've bought and that you have to wash. I expect the differentiating factor is scope of use, for instance you wouldn't use a Tesco uniform to go to the pub in, yet you may use smart trousers and a shirt.

I am not on a Meter and live in Wales. I think there's an argument to be had that it takes so many liters of water to produce each disposable Nappy as well but overall I think it's safe to assume the water to wash them shouldn't discourage people. To dry ours we have a dehumidifier for when we can't put them on the line, otherwise they are our there in the sunshine on sunny days (we save them up to wash all in one go). Only 0.22 kWh so roughly 25p overnight to dry everything.

lamia27

Bournemouth council gave me £30 for nappies

lamia27

I used reusable nappies for both my children, now 3 and 5. I washed their nappies once/twice a week,storing them in a bucket. Dried them on radiators, rack and using dehumidifier sometimes when I was running out of fresh ones.

SFconvert

So you use your washing machine twice a day to wash nappies? You also aren't taking into account the cost of water used which is fine if you are not on a meter I suppose ( though there is an environmental cost), but on a meter that would also cost about 15p per cycle, plus the huge additional wear and tear on the washing machine. Also, what about drying all those nappies, especially in winter?

How much did they pay up?

mb1357

It is a reasonable stance when you think about; a Local Authority cant reasonably be expected to check every road every day; so they have to have a proper system of inspection and put any actionable defect right following such an inspection otherwise they could be considered negligent. Your only defence would be to somehow prove the defect was present and actionable at time of last inspection.

I was applying for jobs up here, and getting interviews too. I’d just left uni, and could have moved at a couple of days notice to almost anywhere in the country - couple of suitcases and I’d have been there. I had no ties then. I’ve been a tax payer since 1987, even during the 6 years I was at college / uni. I’ve funded plenty - so have no issues with taxpayers having funded my train fares. Could I do it now? No, I’ve 2 young children, I’m recently widowed, so the upheaval would be impossible now. And I wouldn’t need anyone to fund trainfares.

Ourkid1010

Don't suppose there were any companies near you to get practice on? I understand the point and the incentive of this scheme and it's good to get people into work, but if you have no means of paying for a train, how would you pay to relocate your entire life to another part of the UK? What I will say is that why on earth aren't these interview costs being absorbed by the hiring companies or the recruitment agencies? The companies hiring who can afford to hire someone from the other side of the country and can't find anyone local then they can absolutely afford to pay a train fare (generally - they may not want to but that's another matter) and if it's through an agency then their commission of 3 to 6 months could also go towards paying it. Not really sure why tax payers should be funding it...

Luckily for me, back then i lived within 10 mins of my local job centre so had no problems attending without the need of transport.

Hi, Can i still apply for this, even though the 5th April deadline has passed? Thanks

sportyfae

If their only income is £16k pa each then they do qualify. But they won't benefit from applying, one will pay less tax and the other will pay more so pointless in applying but they could if they wanted to. And it might be worth it for pensioners with that income. If you had one person with pension income of £16k and the other a smaller pension income along with some savings income or dividends which totalled £16k they could quite possibly apply and not have any extra tax to pay because of the £8,000 savings and dividend income which could be taxed at 0%.

Private and public pensions are savings as investments, the rate of pension contribution was calculated using maths for payouts of pensions in the future. I don't think there is maths to substantiate your claim that private sector companies go bust because of pensions. However, there maybe a possible reason, amongst others, that in the decades we have passed more laws to create more public services which in turn needed more people to run these public services, some of which are now in the private sector, or outsourced to the private sector. It is possible that the cause is not the pension per person, the pension scheme per person, but is the total number of people, which is the quantity of people. There is also another factor, you may like to investigate, the mean average of public sector worker in contrast to private sector for the same job specs from 1970 to now. Last time when I did this for a project, a profile of 450 staff in a specific department, their salaries were up to 40% less in the public sector from memory . Many had expressed that they were willing then to accept lower pay , relative to private, because of job environment,living environment in housing costs, security and pension. Another words they traded short term and immediate gains for long term security. So final salary pension was a postponed "remuneration". If an average professional put the delta between public sector pay and private sector pay, into stock market,or buy-to-let, then its investment growth over 30-40 years is your gold plated pension. As to this cold weather payment, both you and I have deviated from this topic. But as you discussed pensions, so thought that I present a view for your consideration. I don't work in the public sector.

What is the percentage of freeloaders, growing from which percentage to which ?

splender

You may like to add to your diagram the annual net profits after tax, or gross profit before tax in making your point so as to enhance them. These figures are in the same order of magnitude as the welfare benefits. Though I am not sure how accurate the figures are. However, they do infer that the supermarkets and others are the new tax payer subsidised sectors, just like the subsidised industries of old. (Instead of subsidising the employers for unsustainable businesses, the government is subsidising the workers so that they can work at these unsustainable industries/commercial sectors (at least a part of each company even if not the whole of these companies) at lower wages costs than that to live.) These subsidies disrupt Britain's business productivity and national economic performance. The Conservatives should have toughed it out with their working tax credit change, gradually phased it out and passed law gradually to lift wages to compensate.

Bit misleading isn't it? You can't be fined £2500 for ignoring a safety recall. You MIGHT be fined for having an unsafe vehicle, but that's largely independent of any recalls. Many un-recalled vehicles are unsafe, and many recalls are for potential issues which don't make the car immediately unsafe. Useful site, but very misleading blurb.

UC is out to a minority of people who were on DWP. WTC I agree with as work should pay, but disabled/child tax credits should be able to save already some savings - its a choice to spend every penny you have regardless your income source (excludes Jobseekers because that’s not even enough to live off) simply you reevaluate essentials v luxury, pre made food from a supermarket is a luxury not a everyday 3 meals a day essiential (unless you are buying £1 ready meals which work out cheaper). Drink, smoking, taxis - even one night a week is a luxury, a top spec mobile/iPhone luxury, high interest purchasing accounts - luxury, the many need to re-evaluate their lifestyles & budgeting regardless of income or sources, the many don’t spend wisely or appropriately and society/taxpayer loses out and shareholders gain everytime. State can’t keep making new ‘benefits’ for all sub groups under median wage/incomes there are a ton of them already but when you exclude the most vulnerable in society on DWP that’s another matter

That's not entirely true because there are a lot of disabled people on WTC/UC who qualify for this scheme.

whatyadoinsucka

No, this deal is about claiming back professional fess

diktiomenos

I wouldn't say minefield really, IMO it's one of the more straightforward aspects of HMRC. The point is that if you have to use specific clothing in the course of your work (eg PPE, or a nurse's uniform) and your employer doesn't provide cleaning facilities (so you have to clean it at home under your own cost) and the uniform can only be used exclusively for the job, then the cleaning costs are deductible from your income. Some professions have specific arrangements for the amount, for others is the standard £60pa. The exclusive usage means that the clothing can't be used in other circumstances. Eg. you wouldn't normally go to the pub wearing a Tesco uniform as a choice. In your case, unfortunately you can't claim the cost because the suit can be used for other occasions. If it were to be branded (I wear similar attire for work, but it has company logos) then it would be eligible.

"Look reading your comments, you are not always right.Think about my username!" Never implied that I am! Ever considered that perhaps you aren't either. My view (that's all it is) is based on my experience with a few claimants I know personally, who I have helped, and none of those are "cheats", and it's always been difficult for them to claim, and they are all genuine cases. Now I know the system is not fool proof BUT I do not believe for one moment that you can get ESA by simply claiming you pinch yourself. Until I see proof of that, I'm going to take that assertion with a complete pinch of salt. (Pardon the pun.) You trying to pull rank on me, a kind of do you know who I am, won't work. And no I don't. Your username OperateOnMe suggests you either operate on people (surgeon?) Or you've been operated on a lot. Anyway, doesn't matter, people being able to claim for "pinching" themselves still smells like a highly exaggerative example. I won't reply again, this is just going back and forth, so I agree to disagree on the above, although the rest of what you say in general I'm willing to accept as fair comment.

People don't earn good money by accident they work hard and earn it. Compared to us that don't work hard and earn less? Your words not mine, you earned the right to pay more taxes so no need to cry about it. And actually earning that much I'd welcome that much taxation because that means I'd be able to give my family even more then I am now. Because to me every penny I earn goes towards them if I have a say in it. I'm not jealous I've been on all sides of the scales the have too much to know what to do with and the not know how I'm going to eat for the week.

House prices will go up anyway

Master.G

And where would those who currently rent my properties live if i am forced to sell them? If there are no private rentals, more people would have to try and purchase thereby driving the prices up even further. There is no point increasing supply if demand also goes up in line. I accept your point re empty properties though. But basic economics dictates that the way to drive down costs, including rents, is to greatly increase supply or cut demand. Unless you are advocating reintroducing the Black Death, that means building on a large scale.

Scorpion

I think this is a very good idea. I know lots of people who have property they rent out, they nearly all have small FTB type properties as they tend to generate the best yield. Some of the folks I know have multiple properties on interest only mortgages and are just using them as a source of income rather than traditional savings. I think far higher taxation on those who have BTL properties and increasing interest rates would be a good move. Sure, the very rich who own property outright wouldn't care, but having a BTL is becoming as common as having a PCP car etc.

Am I right in saying we can both open an LISA - top up our remaining balance for this tax year. Then say close and receive the additional bonus by the end of the month?

Chrrye

Calling this deal a 'loophole' is not particularly helpful (or true). It is a deliberate and publically specified mechanism. It is only of use to those with Help to Buy ISA pre April 2017 so would be more accurately titled "Combine your Help to Buy ISA into the new Lifetime ISA (if you are opening one) [time-limited: 31 March]"

Chrrye

I disagree. It depends entirely on the individual. And with the poor interest rates on the cash Lifetime ISA right now, even the risk-averse individual would be advised to consider S&S (and then maybe choose a low risk investment if they prefer (eg. bond or tracker fund)). The primary focus here (LT ISA) is the bonus, less on the rate of interest on monies added. In the first year (this financial year , 17/18) it will be paid annually, but from the 2018/19 tax year onwards the bonus is paid every month. But bear in mind the above - it may be worth keeping your 18/19 £4k (if you have it available) out of the ISA (in someplace with better interest rates) 'til the end of 18/19 (when you put it in the LT ISA at the end of the financial year).

But I'm not sure how else the government is supposed to accept that you've coupled...? What's your solution for this situation? What would you like to see changed, specifically? Any two adults on the electoral roll at the same address automatically get registered as a couple, regardless? Or maybe the simplest solution would be: you could just tell the government that you're coupled? They'll probably have you fill out a form, just so they've got the information in their system for cases like this. Indeed, I think that there's some sort of office where you can register this information! (angel)
