Obama to talk to US bosses on economy

first_imgSunday 12 December 2010 10:32 pm US President Barack Obama will hold a one-day summit of chief executives on Wednesday as part of a renewed effort by the White House to build support from among business leaders for his economic agenda.The administration expects bosses from Google, Cisco Systems, International Business Machines, American Express, Dow Chemical and Pepsico to attend the meeting to discuss trade, tax, regulatory issues and the deficit.The Obama administration wants to persuade US firms to release some of the $1.93 trillion (£1.22 trillion) in cash and other liquid assets they are thought to be hording.The Federal Reserve said last week that cash as a share of total assets is at the highest level it has been in a half-century. President Obama is keen for America’s biggest companies to invest that money in expansion and job creation.The summit will include substantial discussions on overhauling the tax code and cutting the budget deficit as well as discussions over providing “a balanced approach to regulations.” The meeting will be held in private in contrast with some previous White House meetings involving business leaders. It is expected that holding the meeting in private will allow business leaders to speak more candidly than the have felt able to in previous more public meetings.While Obama has met with chief executives since the start of his administration some have complained he has ignored their views. Business leaders have also expressed concern at the President’s occasional sharp criticism of multi-national companies, and his administration’s regulatory and tax policies.

Czech Republic to introduce higher gambling taxes in 2020

first_img Email Address Tags: OTB and Betting Shops Czech Republic to introduce higher gambling taxes in 2020 Bingo The Czech Republic’s Ministry of Finance has confirmed that it will increase the tax rate on certain gambling activities in the country from January 2020. Taxes will be split into three levels, according to how harmful the government perceives the activity to be. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 29th May 2019 | By contenteditor The Czech Republic’s Ministry of Finance has confirmed that it will increase the tax rate on certain gambling activities in the country from January 2020. At present, the tax rate for gambling is set at 23% of gross gaming revenue (GGR) with the exception of gaming machines, which are taxed at 35% of GGR. However, the new structure will now see taxes split into three levels, according to how harmful the government perceives the activity to be. This is in line with the draft gambling tax act published in 2015. From January 1, 2020, lotteries, live games and bingo operators will be taxed at 30%, up from the current rate of 23%. The rate for fixed odds betting will also rise from 23% to 25%. The Ministry of Finance said that some of the additional funds from higher taxes will be used to support problem gambling initiatives in the Czech Republic. The changes are the result of a long-running campaign by the Czech Ministry of Health and the National Drug Policy Coordinator, calling to address the increase in availability of addictive substances and services. As part of this, the Ministry of Finance is also proposing changes to taxes on both alcohol and tobacco. These include a 40% increase in excise duty on 0.5 litres of spirits, as well as a rise in excise duty on cigarettes from 27% to 30%. “Our country has made considerable progress in the field of combating addiction in recent years… but expert figures show that we must remain active,” Finance Minister, Alena Schillerová, said. “The increase in excise duties lowers the availability of addictive substances and also enables them to raise funds to support prevention projects.” Czech Health Minister, Adam Vojtěch, added: “Higher taxes can not only increase revenue, but also motivate consumers to reduce consumption, thereby reducing related health problems.” The planned tax increases, which were first unveiled last month, attracted heavy criticsm from some quarters, including Miroslav Kalousek, the former leader of the KDU-CSL and TOP 09 parties who has twice served as the government’s Finance Minister. Jan Volny, the vice-chairman of the ANO 2011 political party, also said the rise to 30% could be counter-productive in collecting taxes, while Jan Bartošek, a member of the Chamber of Deputies for the Christian and Democratic Union party, said an increase in tax rates could “lead to an increase in illegal gambling”.Image: Sébastien Avenet Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Czech Republic Topics: Casino & games Finance Legal & compliance Lottery Sports betting Bingo Subscribe to the iGaming newsletterlast_img read more

Shoppers can then choose to donate some or all of this cashback commission to charity.There is no charge to the charity or the shopper for sharing this cashback as a donation. Indeed, shoppers are asked if they wish to make the donation via Gift Aid, boosting its value. In addition the site owners add 10% to each donation made through the site.

The site’s owners say that amounts of cashback generated “will vary from a few pence for doing a search on a search engine to £100+ with some retailers”.Charities interested in benefiting from this cashback can contact the site now in the run-up to its projected launch on 1 October 2006. Cashback Rewards say that “members active at this time should be receiving their first payout in time for Christmas.” When the site goes live, charities will be able to register using the Charity Registration Page, which will have to be completed by an official charity representative. Charities will be able to view their own account, keeping track of all donations made to the charity, as well as who made the donation (unless the member wishes to donate anonymously), and their Gift Aid declaration if they made one. Charities will be able to print the latter directly from the account.Participating charities will be givne their own web page on the shopping site which they can edit and keep up to date via an online control panel.Cashback Rewards asks that participating charities include a link on their site to the shopping site, which would make sense anyway as part of the scheme’s promotion to supporters.

The index measures builder confidence in newly built, single family homes based on current home sales. It was the first time since May of 2013 that the index measured below 50, the neutral point between a market that is viewed as either good or bad. Observed traffic of prospective home buyers fared even worse over the month, falling 9 points to 31.All four regions measured by NAHB reported declines in confidence. Losses ranged from 7 points down to 46 in the South, and a 14 point loss to 57 in the West. Poor weather, combined with existing credit and labor concerns, were all factors in bringing homebuilder confidence down this month to its lowest level in the better part of a year.HomeSteps, the real estate sales division of Freddie Mac, announced it is offering cash incentives to real estate agents who list or sell HomeSteps homes in 23 states. Real estate agents will receive a $1,000 incentive and listing agents a $500 bonus when they complete sales of HomeSteps homes.

HUD received the award for its Office of Community Planning and Development’s (CPD) modernized Grants Dashboard.Steven W. Rawlinson, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Economic Development for CPD, and Maribel Gatica, Advisor to the Assistant Secretary for CPD, received the award on behalf of HUD at MicroStrategy’s Federal IT Summit in Washington, D.C.“It is a great honor to receive MicroStrategy’s 2019 Federal IT Innovation Award. We have made it a priority to modernize our systems to improve the way HUD does business,” said Secretary Ben Carson. “We still have work to do until all of HUD’s systems are up to date, but this award shows that our efforts are paying dividends and the results have made HUD a stronger, more nimble agency.”CPD’s Dashboard provides funding information for each city and state that receives CPD program funds, in a place-based format. The Dashboard details the size of each grant received over the past several years, as well as the total amount of funds currently available to be spent on affordable housing and community and economic development activities. HUD notes that before modernizing the Grants Dashboard, it relied on manual reports that could not efficiently drive critical decisions or provide oversight into all grant programs.“We are incredibly proud to recognize the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development with the 2019 Federal IT Innovation Award for their exemplary use of analytics to achieve significant ROI and operational efficiencies,” said Michael J. Saylor, CEO,  MicroStrategy Incorporated. “Their CPD Grants Dashboard showcases an innovative enterprise analytics solution while serving as a blueprint for digital transformation initiatives across the federal government.”Secretary Carson discussed technology development in the housing industry at HUD’s “Innovative Housing Showcase,” co-hosted by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). “It’s important we highlight these new building technologies that are answering the call for more affordable, durable housing options for families across America,” said Secretary Carson.
