Cheating UK

All the Indian it companies are bringing alot of professionals on intercompany transfers to UK.

1.they only pay allowance to them but in their work permit they show income nearer to 40k at the time of visa application,but they will not pay taxes to gov of UK

2.they are killing IT industry in UK.

3.if a guy comes on TCS intercompany transfer and works for one company in UK for 3 months then TCS is using the same person in another company for some other time.All the it companies are using intercompany transfer as tier1

4.intercomapny transfer should be specific for one company like TCS-VISA for 6 months not like TCS for 2 years

5.all intercompany transfer professional should pay taxes in UK.

Look after your own people….. hows that for a radical idea.?? then maybe our country could improve again instead of plumetting completely.

Regulate the housing market by creating more social housing and the mass construction of rent controlled, high quality housing at cost

The UK economy is heavily unbalanced and society is under severe strain because of the unhealthy proccupation with property values . The private sector should be controlled and the govt should intervene to create more social housing with a new  agile and diverse  philosophy that would allow tenants to rent, buy, exchange but with clearly defined rules on standards of upkeep and presentation .

Southern Europe has some interesting models with public corporations that develop public and private land under cost controlled ,socially  diverse  responsible and means tested models that allow , different age groups, economic classes etc to establish a foothold in areas otherwise closed to them .

Rent controlled projects should be encouraged to draw demand away from the private sector and prevent overheating in the housing market .

Employment and Privacy on Convictions

Respect the privacy of citizens formerly convicted of an offence.

Most criminals are unemployed. And people in work seldom commit an offence. Indeed, there is nothing worse for reforming an offfender than them not being able to find work after their offence.

The EU recognises this and has put into place laws preventing employers discriminating against people convicted of something.

This is to help reform them. It is illegal for an employer, for example, to inquire in a job interview about convictions. It is illegal to request that information on applications.

And it works. Reoffence is scarce after steady employment is found.

But there's one crazy little country "opting out" of this ruling by forcing people to mention convictions on job applications.

In the UK, a former offender remains under State obligation to declare convictions on job applications (except in some cases).

Here's a Eures search on the word "conviction". Only the UK imposes self-destruction on its citizens by forcing many of those convicted of something to remain in unemployment.

CE Marking imposed on small manufacturers over the last 10 years has killed Creativity, Productivity and lost Jobs!

CE Marking conformity assessments and examination facilities for EMC, R&TTE and LVD are simply too expensive at around 500 to 5000 pounds for the small manufacturer making one offs or small runs. These facilities need to be made available to all small manufacturers at a reasonable price. I don’t think the examinations should be for free, but I do think that they should be made at a cost that is affordable, maybe for the same price as a car MOT examination. Ofcom, Universities and some technical colleges have the test equipment to make these assessments and examinations very easily. Such an examination could be made in 1 to 2 hours. I know Ofcom have regional offices all over the UK in the major cities for policing communications in those areas. It is also Ofcom that is responsible for monitoring compliance with the EMC and R&TTE directives. Without evidence of this compliance you cannot CE Mark your product and therefore you cannot place it on the market. Surely it must be possible to make a program or process where the small manufacturer can take new designs for assessment and examination at the regional Ofcom offices for a small fee that will cover the cost of the time used by the of Ofcom employee. This would not result in any further cost to the taxpayer, in fact if enough assessments were made Ofcom may make a profit, this would open the market up to small manufacturers with new inventions, innovations and ideas that would lead to more jobs and skills.

Ban The Stereotype!!! There is a serious side to this.

As a rock'n'roll male of the species I have long hair and ear-rings.  I used to wear a suit when I worked for the banks as well.  They recognised the 'student' and 'arty-farty' factor, and how relevant it was to custom.

Many don't though, and the bullying can get pretty bad.

Your appearance is tied to who you are as a person.  It's part of your personality, and everything to do with that.  And linked to your mental health as well.  Bully someone for long enough over something as petty as fashion and you will harm them.

And if they're downtrodden will they be able to show any of the genius they once had?  It's unlikely, as they'll be too afraid to even think straight.

Allocate resources to rebuild canal network

Britain is very lucky to have an outstanding network of canals which today are used mainly for leisure boating.  The British Waterways Board has had on ongoing program of construction and improvement but it has not enough resources.

Compared to the billions spent on useless projects, the return on investment on the British canals would be very good indeed, for the countryside, and balance of payments.

empty shops….. coffee shops?

Now call me crazy, but surely everyone must have noticed the increasing amounts of empty shops in towns caused by the recession in this country. If some of these were turned in to Amsterdam style coffeeshops, I am fairly sure that they would stay open. The demand for cannabis is so great it is truly staggering, all I have heard for the past decade is disappointed cannabis users complaining how much effort it takes to get cannabis, I have heard stories of 400 mile round trips to obtain a few grams of grass. But no matter how hard it is to get, people always do.

There is nothing that this government can do to stop people obtaining and smoking cannabis, it will never end. 

Why not use this obvious mass market and make it a part of our (clearly failing) economy. We could easily regulate this plant and people will want to buy it. Don't get me wrong, a license to sell cannabis should be extremely difficult (but not impossible) to get, and very easy to lose.

Reduce VAT for hair salons

Hair Salons are a very labour intentive business and therefore collect significant levels of tax for the goverment including VAT, Income Tax, NI etc etc.

The EU has recognised this additional burden by allowing member governments to reduce the VAT for this sector which provides employment  and  training for so many.

There are many economic arguments as to how this could work without the Government loosing much in Tax.

reduce minimum hols back to 20 days inc bank holidays

The last government increased minimum holiday allowance per year to 28 days which was supposed to allow for the bank holidays. I would like it to be repealed.

We're a hair salon – a very labour intensive business – and this has had a major effect on our business.

  1. with a staff of 18 this has meant we now have to pay 360 days of extra holiday (18*20) – effectively another member of staff who we could have employed but now can't afford to.
  2. Also as a business that doesn't opperate just Mon-Fri this causes us a problem. Some of my staff never work a Monday and so they get an unfair advantage over those who do – (there are four bank holiday Mondays?) The ones who would work the bank holiday get paid and have their holiday for the day another day but the ones who don't work the holiday also get an extra day's holiday and don't have to work which isn't very fair. Then if we start discussing parttime staff who don't work Mondays the situation becomes even crazier.
  3. In my view the market should be left to determine holiday allowances over the previous 20 day minimum. If you aren't a good empoloyer and don't look after your team they won't stay with you and you won't be successful. We provide many perks for our team but an extra 8 days of holiday is just too much especially in these lean time.
  4. Also remember that althought we try to run our business by the book many salon owners, take cash out of their businesses and pay their staff in cash which gives them and their staff an unfair advantage over us legitimate businesses. We've always taken the view that to compete against these underhand businesses we have to be legal but lean.
  5. the rise to 20% VAT will also hit us very hard.

Charge VAT on imported food

If the cost of food manufactured, grown or packaged outside the UK had 10% VAT charged on it, people would be encouraged to buy British.

It would give an enormous boost to jobs in industry and agriculture in this country.

It could well pay for itself several times over by reduced reliance on the state.

It might mean that the rise in VAT to 20% on many manufactured goods was no longer necessary.

Unless, of course, the EU says we wouldn't be allowed to do it…

Integrate Inward Migration policies w/NESTA

Rather than 'Cap' inward migration via capricious numerical quotas (EU and non-EU), as many reactionary Britons would have, THIS government must behave in a pragmatic manner – balancing cost versus benefit.

Inward Migration policy must today factor-in the 'ROI' (Return On Investment) the British people are likely to receive, in employment and income from exports, through granting citizenship (AND initial support) to innovators from OUTSIDE the nation (and EU) as had previous governments the favours accorded billion pound multi-national companies – many which are at the root of the global economic crisis.

Setting immigration 'Caps' for non-EU skilled workers whilst giving unlimited entry to 'entertainers' ('A&A' – actors and athletes) smacks of the Roman Empire in its decline (ie 'Bread and Circuses') when rulers placated the unemployed and starving masses through spectacles to stay in power.  

Immigration 'skills' for 'skilled workers' should be assessed via on-line testing and interviews and suitability for inward migration should be determined on the basis of 'ROI' without regard for age, race, sex, religion or national origin.

Punting a ball and speaking rudimentry English are no basis for employment except in the entertainment industry so should immigration policies be set to foster a populace such as Montag's wife 'Linda' from the story Farenheit 451?

Require businesses to create entry-level jobs

Businesses should be required to have at least 5% of positions in their companies set aside for people without experience in the sector. This can be 5% rounded down, so companies with under 20 workers would not be affected, companies with 20 – 39 employees would need to have one position etc.

British Jobs Future

We need to reduce outsourcing of skilled work to off shore.  Why?

1) In relation to my big blue organisation, yes it is global business but 70% of our skilled jobs are now offshored in the last 5 years.  This not only drives the cost of the rate of pay in UK for those jobs but is taking out a massive economic spending power out of the UK.

2) If this continues, to keep chasing low rates of pay offshore, is removing the desire for young people to get the skills that are being off shored.  In time those skills will all but dissapear from UK. What will todays children do in 10 to 20 years' time – not skill work because they will not train for it as those jobs will be off shore.

Skilled work is being carried out off shore cheaply and easily because of no boundries in international communications and movement of the work produced using electronic/digital  means.

Do something to stop organisations setting up satalite branches in off shored countries and recruiting cheap skilled people removing those skilled jobs from UK.  Keep and develop skills in the UK, keep the earning powner and therefore spending power and growth of the economy in the UK.

Housing, Benefits & Jobs

Having had the misfortune of being made redundant through ill health last November and also being made homeless for part of this year, I have had to hunt high and low for somewhere to live and it has been far from being easy!

The biggest problem with being unemployed, is the simple fact that a great many landlords do not accept DSS tenants. Look at most adverts for property that is available to rent and you will see the words NO DSS attached to the end of the advert. 

Having researched the problem myself, I have discovered that there is a serious level of discrimination towards those who are unfortunate enough to have lost their jobs through no fault of their own.

Your government may be looking to cut benefits in order to reduce the national debt, but for someone like myself who is desperate to get back in to work and also done their damned hardest to get off the street, benefits are vital until new employment can be found. By councils delaying benefits or constantly messing people around, they are adding even more stress to what is already a difficult time.

Yes, the benefits system needs a re-think and yes, there are people who abuse it, but there are a hell of a lot of people who need it, that are struggling to survive! 

I am on Job Seekers Allowance of £65 per week. £7.65 per week  is deducted from that because I had no choice except to apply for a Social Fund Loan in order to be able to get the house I am now living in. This leaves me with just over £57 a week to survive on. Once I pay for electric, gas and food, I am left with virtually nothing. I do not own a television and even if I did, I would not be able to afford a licence! I have no car, and yet again if I did, I could not afford to run it! 

What I am asking is that the government start to look at the reasons why the people on DSS are struggling to find employment…. is it because of a lack of jobs? A lack of skills? There could be any number of reasons. 

In my particular case, I was made redundant through ill health last year, since making a recovery, I have applied for over 180 jobs since March this year. Out of the 180 jobs I have applied for, I have had exactly 8 letters telling me I was not suitable for the position or was not qualified enough and I have been asked to one (1) interview! The rest I have not heard anything from! So as a part of looking at the reasons why people are struggling to find employment, look at the jobs which are being advertised! 

I have been registered with Jobs Today, Monster and several other websites. Since registering, I have checked them daily and all I see is a repeat of the same adverts by the same companies with very little difference elsewhere. Many of these companies when you read their adverts often talk about career prospects within the company and how you can advance through the ranks. If this is the case, how come so many of the companies advertising these claims of fabulous career prospects are advertising elsewhere…why are they not promoting their current staff to the managerial jobs which dominate the Jobs website pages and replacing the staff who are promoted?

Replace National minimum wage with a Regional minimum wage

There have been suggestions on this site to scrap national minimum wage altogether.

I can't agree with that. I think it would be a backwards step, hence me starting a new thread.

My idea is that we should alter the National Minimum Wage law and introduce a Regional Minimum Wage linked to the cost of living.

It's blindingly obvious that the current minimum wage stretches a lot further in the North than it does in the South. This needs to be adressed.

My belief is that the banks and call centers do actually want UK staff talking to UK people, and the UK car companies also would prefer to have UK people too, but everyone in the UK costs the same price…and that price is too expensive when compared to other regions in Europe and the rest of the world.

A call center staff member living in London might indeed need £6 an hour to simply survive, but £6 an hour in Newcastle or Liverpool buys a whole lot more where the rents, council tax, travel costs and house prices are so much lower.

Regulate to encourage more than to discourage

By regulatio one intends the creation of disincentives to certain actions or outcomes. There is a plathorae of such regulations. However, what is lacking is a coherent set of regulations that encourage innovation and creativity. One can think of many options, such as the obligation to engage of SMEs in large government projects especially those that need a high level of development (IT, engineering etc), promoting the usage new services and products in universities and govenment departments.

Scrap the Sunday Trading regulations

In today's global society every day is important for trade, and the current Sunday trading regulations seem to be stifling for businesses and economic growth.

I believe that if the Sunday trading regulations were scrapped, and Sunday treat as a normal trading day, that this could help the economy and create more jobs.

One disadvantage of this would be that currently workers can refuse to work on Sundays – however, I see no reason why, if the Sunday trading regulations were scrapped, an amendment could be made to the working time directive to state that workers are allowed to stipulate one day a week that they refuse to work. This could safeguard vital time together for families, and also be beneficial to many religious groups. Currently it is only Sundays which people can opt out of, which is beneficial to many Christians – but if people could choose their own opt out day then Christians would still be able to opt out of Sundays, Jews may wish to opt out of Saturdays, Muslims may wish to opt out of Fridays – the freedom would be there to choose whichever day is important to you.

This could safeguard vital time together for families, and also be beneficial to many religious groups. Currently it is only Sundays which people can opt out of, which is beneficial to many Christians – but if people could choose their own opt out day then Christians would still be able to opt out of Sundays, Jews may wish to opt out of Saturdays, Muslims may wish to opt out of Fridays – the freedom would be there to choose whichever day is important to you.

Removal of NuLabours falsely created public sector jobs.

In an underhanded attempt to remove people from unemployment, new Labour massively changed how the TAx, benefits and tax credit sytems worked.

They created various different agencies (all of whome seem unable to communicate between themselves) to deal with each individual aspect of our tax, benefits tax credits etc.

This obviously created millions of jobs, which looked like they were taking people out of unemployment, at the time.

Now we're a few years down the line, it's pretty obvious that not only are we as a Country having trouble affording all these departments and jobs in the public sector, but it's also extremely confusing/frustrating and plain difficult to arrange anything with these various agencies.

The Tax credit people don't know how much you earn, the benefits agency doesn't know how much tax credit's you're getting and the HMRC, well they couldn't care less as long as they get their pound of flesh.

What was wrong with working it all out through your tax code? One organization who deals with your income tax, credits and benefits all based on a circumstance relative tax code?

low income and young children? – high tax free earnings allowance (tax code).

high income, no kids – low tax free earnings allowance (tax code)

 

Sure we'll need to lay off a lot of unneccesary public sector workers, but they really shouldn't have been employed in the first place, it was all a "trick" to bring the unemployment figure down, a trick we can't afford to support any longer.

Stop All Immigration from Any Source Country Until 2020

All immigration should be stopped without exception until 2020 this will give an opportunity for a rethink of the culture of ignorance surrounding how the indigenous population is being treated.

There are no vacancies for many unskilled and lower skilled indigenous people we do not need immigration as this country had adequate people to train for any job now or in the future. We do not need immigrants to fill any vacancies all indigenous people should have the right to enjoy there homeland without interference from foreign cultures and the loss of opportunity to homes, Jobs and education that has been occuring since the 1950's. The European Union has not benefitted us the indigenous population and allowing poor third world countries has brought about unlimited numbers of unskilled workers bidding for jobs for less than an indigenous worker is able to work for, this applies across the board. This form of racsism is called Ethnocide and is against the geneva convention.

Capatalists have been allowed to move manufacturing industries abroad they should be accountable for the cost of unemployment and pay heavy compensation before moving jobs abroad. Finding cheap labour in third world countries means that we can not compete in the jobs market or politicians are planning to turn us into a third world economy with a poverty ravaged underclass created by the import of cheap foreign labour.

Open up employment – stop the `closed shop` in job applications

In some companies (sometimes large ones) they employ temps who are disallowed the right to apply for the better jobs even if those same jobs are being done by the temps themselves. 

This happened to me when the job I was doing as a temp for a few months was subsequently advertised and I was told `this job is for permanent staff only`. I heard that it was because the organisation had done a deal with the unions to shut out temps and `outsiders` from applying for the jobs.

I hasten to add that this organisation is a very large organisation currently owned by the state!
