But executives, especially in the car and electronics industries, say their firms will still lose out to South Korean competitors unless the government provides tax breaks for research and capital investment, helps combat the strong yen and makes progress on free trade deals.Political analysts said the tax cut would neither induce businesses to back Kan’s ruling Democratic Party of Japan, nor help raise voter support, which hit a fresh low of 21 per cent in a media poll published yesterday. “Corporate taxes in Japan are high compared with countries around the world, so a reduction of the tax rate is a good thing,” Mitsubishi Motors president Osamu Masuko said yesterday. He added: “But in order to boost jobs and capital outlays on facilities, management needs to be able to have a bright outlook for the future, and for that a reduction in the corporate tax rate is not enough. The yen is still very strong, and for companies like ours that rely heavily on exports, it’s a tough situation.”Cutting the tax rate to 35 per cent from 40 per cent would still leave it higher than the 28 per cent corporate tax rate in Britain, 29.4 per cent in Germany and 24.2 per cent in South Korea, which is gaining overseas market share in cars and electronics at Japan’s expense. Many Japanese companies are more inclined to invest abroad as they try to reduce reliance on the stagnating home market, doing little to reduce the 5.1 per cent jobless rate. whatsapp Sharelast_img read more

The firm is “already making money”, Costolo said, with a string of companies desperate to develop closer relationships with their customers using the site.He pointed to a tie-up with Audi, which has run campaigns encouraging users of the site to interact with its products.Twitter is able to monetise this through charging companies to promote individual “tweets”, the firm’s account or “trends” it is promoting, said Costolo. He said his focus at the microblogging site is to make Twitter ubiquitous across devices and platforms.Costolo also said he wants to make the user experience identical no matter which platform they use the service on.

It was great to see the prime minister at last get off the fence and criticise the officials and bureaucrats that have done so much to halt progress and job-creation in Britain. He joked that even his baby daughter Florence knew that “tax and regulation” was holding the country back – and promised to “be on the side of everyone in this country who wants to create jobs, and wealth and opportunity.” It was all good stuff, the sort of rhetoric that is desperately needed in a country that has fallen out of love with hard work and risk-taking and which has become dangerously addicted to debt-fuelled instant gratification. But if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is – and all the good words at the weekend soon fall apart on closer analysis. Cameron is right that bureaucrats specialise in gold-plating rules and making life difficult for people – in fact, he could have gone even further in his critique, pointing out that many of the coalition’s reforms are being sabotaged by the civil service. But he is wrong to imply that officials are uniquely guilty or are somehow the originators of the bad rules crippling UK Plc. Civil servants and officials – national as well as local – only operate within the legislation – and that is the responsibility of the government, which passes laws in Parliament. At the end of the day, the government is responsible for the way this country is governed. To imply otherwise is a case of shameless buck-passing. It is not some faceless, Whitehall-based mandarin who is abolishing the compulsory retirement age, a well-meaning but unworkable change which means that anybody over the age of 65 could sue for discrimination if they are ever let go. It is the coalition government. It is not bureaucrats who are hiking employee national insurance in April, which means that the higher rate of tax will climb to 42 per cent and the top rate to 52 per cent – it is the politicians. It is not officials who are introducing a flurry of new labour market laws – seven major changes in 2011 alone – that will make it even less economic for employers to hire staff. The most costly will be the right to request time off to train, which will have an annual recurring cost to business of £174.96m; the agency workers directive, which will have an annual recurring cost to business of £1.548bn; and next year’s pensions reform, which will have an annual recurring cost to business of £4.526bn. And what about the crazy Bribery act, another well-meaning change which will criminalise swathes of innocent behaviour and end up costing firms fortunes in legal advice? Sure, officials will make these more costly than they need to be – but at the end of the day these are pieces of legislation voted through by the government. It may be following the EU’s orders, of course – but the government could simply refuse or reform the UK’s relationship with the EU to prevent some of this madness. Yes, in every case the law is worsened by officialdom. This is especially true of planning rules, where local councils behave in absurd ways. But unless Cameron genuinely takes the axe to laws that he has until now been happy to promote, yesterday’s speech will turn out to have been yet another piece of substance-less spin. We will soon find out.Follow me on Twitter: @[email protected] Tags: NULLlast_img read more

I’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares in a Stocks and Shares ISA to make a million from the market crash

first_imgI’d buy cheap FTSE 100 shares in a Stocks and Shares ISA to make a million from the market crash “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares After crashing by 32% in the depths of the sell-off, The FTSE 100 index has recovered around 25% of its value. But an impressive rise in global stocks has now left many investors in fear of a second major sell-off. Regardless of whether another crash is around the corner, I’d continue to buy cheap FTSE 100 shares in an ISA and hold them for the long term. Why? Because I believe it’s the best way to build capital in the long run.Cheap FTSE 100 shares are everywhereGlancing at the FTSE 100 index, one can’t help but think there’s still significant value on offer. Many well-established and reputable companies are trading far below their average historic valuations, further indicating a wide margin of safety. Think of companies such as Royal Dutch Shell, Aviva and Barclays, whose share prices have all fallen by over 26%.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…As always, I don’t advocate buying stocks simply because their share prices have fallen. But rather, because they’ve fallen too much. As such, these companies and many others could presently be considerably undervalued.Moreover, some of the FTSE 100’s top dividend shares are also trading on cheap valuations thanks to the sell-off. The advantage with these stocks is that they enable you to plough dividends back into your investments, fuelling the process of compounding. I’m thinking of companies such as British American Tobacco and GlaxoSmithKline that boast respective yields of 6.75% and 4.9%, and P/E ratios of 9.2 and 12.9.Investing inside a Stocks and Shares ISAThe benefits of investing inside a Stocks and Shares ISA cannot be understated in my view. Once opened, you’ll receive three tax benefits, including no tax on profits, no tax on interest earned on bonds and no tax on dividend income. These taxes can have a serious impact on your portfolio once it reaches a certain amount.You can open a Stocks and Shares ISA with numerous brokers online. It’s a simple process and can be done in a matter of minutes. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did it once you have a sizeable investment pot to your name!How to make a million from the market crashFinally, let me illustrate just how simple it actually is to make a million in the stock market. Thanks to the unmatched power of time combined with interest, you can turn a relatively small investment into a massive one.For example, let’s say you invest £375 a month in a mixture of shares in your ISA. Additionally, you manage to achieve an annual return of 9%. After exactly 35 years, your S&S ISA would have a value of £1,017,357!With that in mind, don’t miss out on the opportunity to buy cheap FTSE 100 shares in an ISA today. Hold them for the long term, and you can expect to realise some serious returns that should immensely boost your prospects of making a million.

The FTSE 100 had a cracking November, gaining 689 points, or 12%. And just nine days into December, the top UK index has already climbed a further 320 points for another 5%.But these are unusual times. And this short-term success stands against the Covid-19 ravages of 2020. But are FTSE 100 share prices still good value, and what would I do now? Looking to the long term, I do think our top shares are currently undervalued. It’s hard to put many meaningful numbers on anything right now. But there is one key measure that I find increasingly valuable, and that’s the FTSE 100 index dividend yield.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…As we entered 2020, analysts were predicting a 4.7% yield for the year. On the face of it, I think that made the index look cheap. For one thing, it’s a high yield relative to long-term levels. And, as a weighted average across all 100 shares, it covers companies not paying any dividend plus those offering small yields and reinvesting in growth instead. So picking from only those stocks considered long-term income investments, it’s possible to do significantly better than the average.Dividend valuationBut looking a bit deeper, that attractive-looking 4.7% yield hid a disturbing trend. In recent years, a growing number of FTSE 100 companies have been raising their dividends faster than their earnings. That means dividend cover has been falling, and I don’t see that as a very prudent approach. It makes future dividends potentially less reliable, and diminishes a company’s ability to weather any financial storms coming along in the future. And there are always financial storms coming along in the future.Speaking of storms, nobody expected the tempest brought by the Covid-19 pandemic. But dividends have tumbled as a result, with banking dividends among the first to fall. That was at the behest of the regulator, but I reckon it was wise move anyway. I do think the FTSE 100 banks were getting a little ahead of themselves in providing progressive dividends. Even though they were passing the Bank of England’s stress tests comfortably, there wasn’t much cover kept in reserve to cope with, for example, further Brexit weakness.FTSE 100 in 2021?The overall result has been a big drop in the anticipated FTSE 100 index dividend yield. Forecasts now suggest something around the 3.2% mark this year. And as share prices strengthen, so yields fall further. But what is my long-winded explanation saying about my take on the valuation of our top shares?Well, the 2020 dividend downturn is surely only temporary. The banks will be keen to get back to paying out the annual cash. A good few other companies have not suffered as badly as they might, and we will presumably see their dividends coming back too.So I expect the FTSE dividend yield in 2021 to be nicely ahead of 2020. I do hope we see a more conservative approach in the future. But I can easily see an overall yield approaching the 4% mark. On that assumption, I think the FTSE 100 is undervalued. I’m buying.

Council difficulty finding lead pipes in Limerick

first_img TAGSAnti Austerity AllianceCllr Cian PrendivilleKieran Lehanelead pipeslimerickLimerick City and County Council Director of services, Kieran LehaneLIMERICK City and County Council say it is difficult to be precise as to the exact location and number of remaining lead connections.Anti-Austerity Alliance councillor Cian Prendiville submitted a question to the Council asking where lead pipes are still in use, both in houses and estates built by the city and county councils and the private houses approved by them?Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In response, director of services, Kieran Lehane explained, “Public water supplies were traditionally delivered through cast iron mains with lead pipe connections from the mains to properties. This practice was phased out gradually from the 1950s onwards. Accordingly it is likely that properties connected to mains before this time would have utilised lead services.”Mr Lehane pointed out that Limerick City and County Council has replaced almost 2,000 of these lead services in the last number of years in areas such as Janesboro, Pennywell, Garryowen, Kilalee, Hyde Road, Prospect, Upper and Lower Carey’s Road, Lansdowne Park, New Road, Brown’s Quay and O’Dwyer’s Villas in Thomondgate and Rathbane.He also confirmed that Irish Water is now embarking on a programme to replace lead services in Ballynanty, Kileely and St Mary’s Park.“Over the years the Council would also have replaced lead services when carrying out repairs/refurbishment and redevelopment to houses in its housing stock. In addition to this many households would have replaced lead connections themselves,” said Mr Lehane.“Accordingly its difficult to be precise as to the exact location and number of remaining lead connections. Work being carried out by Irish Water at present will inform this process and provide a more accurate assessment of remaining lead services,” he concluded.
