Rowland gives Tories £1m

first_img Tags: NULL DAVID Rowland, the property tycoon, gave the Tories a £1.065m gift in the third quarter, figures released yesterday showed, making him the biggest political donor. Rowland had been expected to become the Tory party treasurer, although he ruled himself out after other donors balked at the prospect of his appointment. Overall, donations plummeted compared to the period before the election, falling to £7.2m from £26.26m in the second quarter, according to figures from the Electoral Commission. The second biggest donor was trade union Unite, which gave the Labour party £818,366. In a remarkable twist, the UK Independence Party raised more cash than the Liberal Democrats, reflecting the party’s flagging support. UKIP raised £354,000 while the Liberals – who raked in £2m in the second quarter – received just £350,645.

A survey of 21 analysts put the profit at a much better 115.8bn yen for the year to March 31, up 46 per cent from last year. center_img whatsapp Tags: NULL Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeStyleVamp11 Celebs And Their Historical DoubleStyleVampUndoBewadaHusband Divorced His Wife After Looking Closer At This PhotoBewadaUndovirimi.com14 Efficient Arm Workouts To Build Might & Muscle – Virimivirimi.comUndoadvisor15 Plants that Repel Mosquitoes NaturallyadvisorUndocutenova.comTake a Peek at 10 of the Most Expensive Houses in the Worldcutenova.comUndoAmoMediaSpoiled Guy Mocks Waiter, Dad Teaches Him Cruel LessonAmoMediaUndoHealth.recetasgetHeart Attack Early Warning Signs and SymptomsHealth.recetasgetUndoDinnerZUTop 5 Foods That Help Lose Weight FastDinnerZUUndoBuzzDestination7 Types of Men Who Are Not Made For RelationshipsBuzzDestinationUndo Show Comments ▼ Sharelast_img read more

Paddy Power Betfair warns against Irish gambling ad ban

first_img Regions: UK & Ireland Legal & compliance Tags: Online Gambling Email Address Topics: Legal & compliance Paddy Power Betfair warns against Irish gambling ad ban 9th August 2018 | By contenteditor CEO Peter Jackson insists other methods should be explored to tackle problem gambling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Paddy Power Betfair CEO Peter Jackson has hit out at proposals to introduce a blanket ban on gambling advertising in the Republic of Ireland, saying lawmakers in the country should consider other ways to tackle problem gambling.Last month, President Michael Higgins suggested introducing a ban in order to protect the “integrity” of sport in the republic.Higgins claimed that dropping ads from live sport broadcasts would help tackle problem gambling in Ireland and underlined that the country should not “ignore” such problems.However, Jackson has criticised the plans, saying that although the bookmaker is keen to see progress on controlling problem gambling, an outright ban is not “necessarily the right answer”.“We’d like to see some progress made on the [gambling control] bill,” Jackson added, according to the Irish Independent newspaper. “We will operate within the framework that’s put in place – that countries and politicians decide.“We’ve been a very good supporter of responsible gambling in Ireland.”Jackson cited the recent decision by Italy to implement an outright ban on ads as an example of how the system can be “very restrictive”. The ban has drawn criticism from the industry and sports clubs in the country that were supported by betting sponsors, with the European Gaming and Betting Association branding the ban a “counterproductive”. Jackson said he is keen for Ireland to avoid a similar environment.“Some countries chose to put in place very restrictive legislation,” he added. “We’ve just seen in Italy, where advertising is effectively going to be banned. I’m not sure that necessarily is the right answer.”Jackson was speaking after Paddy Power Betfair this week reported its results for the second quarter, during which profit before tax increased 4% to £106m (€117.9m/$136.3m) but earnings slipped by 1%.Paddy Power Betfair also said full-year earnings before deductions and interest, “pre-US sports betting”, is now expected to be between £460m and £480 – down from the previous expectation outlined in the Q1 trading update of between £470m and £495m.last_img read more

German tax office throws out racing betting tax complaint

first_imgHowever, the Finanzamt ruled that Section 11 applied only to retail racing bets, while all other bets are included under Section 17. it pointed to text in the act which “clearly refers” only to bookmakers with a physical location in Germany. Currently, online casino may be offered as part of a transition period, provided operators keep to the terms of the new treaty. Earlier this month, the Minister-Presidents of Germany’s 16 federal states ratified the treaty, which allows online casino nationwide for the first time, but with strict limits including a maximum slot stake of €1. The case primarily concerned two sections of the Racing Betting and Lottery Act (RennwLottG), sections 11 and 17. Germany’s tax office (Finanzamt) has thrown out and dismissed as “unfounded” a complaint from an unnamed operator which argued that online bets on racing should be subject to the same lower tax rate as retail bets on the sport. The operator argued that the “delimitation between the taxable elements of Section 11 of the RennwLottG and Section 17 of the RennwLottG is not clearly regulated”. Legal 30th November 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Section 11 of the RennwLottG sets a 5% tax on racing betting stakes. Section 17, meanwhile, states bets that are processed in Germany or placed by a customer residing in Germany are subject to a 5% levy on “the nominal value of the betting slips”. Regions: Europe Central and Eastern Europe Germany Germany is set to undergo major changes in its gambling landscape as the Fourth State Treaty on Gambling, the Glücksspielneuregulierungstaatsvertrag (GlüNeuRStV), set to come into effect from July 2021. The dispute with the operator – which is based in the EU but outside of Germany and took online bets on horse racing from German customers – dates back to 2012, when the State Treaty on Gambling (GlüStV) came into effect and allowed sports betting licenses to be issued. center_img It said it was “not apparent” that its horse racing bets would fall under the latter, but rather that foreign bookmakers such as itself would fall under the former. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address The difference in tax bases would mean that taxes are higher under Section 17, as certain fees would also be included in calculations. “[Section 11] therefore does not include racing bets which, due to the lack of a domestic location, are offered by bookmakers only established abroad and concluded on the internet,” it said. The operator opted not to pay taxes, pointing to a “lack of specificity and clarity” in the law and arguing the tax was constitutionally inadmissible.  Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting Legal Regulation Horse racing Tags: GlüStV Tax In addition, it pointed out that section 17 refers to both sports and racing events that are not covered by section 11. The inclusion of racing would only make sense if not all racing bets were included in the section 11 tax, and that there would have been “no need” to phrase the law this way otherwise. In a 2015 decision, a lower court rejected its objection to the tax as unfounded, but it was later brought before the Hessian Finance Court, which also found the objection unfounded in January 2019.

Around the lake Gärdsken, in the southern parts of Alingsås, a residential area with villas mainly from the 20th century is situated. Originally, these were small wooden two storey houses with a basement in stone and vernacular detailing. Nowadays however, almost every single house is rebuilt and enlarged beyond recognition. The owners of one of the few houses left intact wanted more space as well as renovating the existing house. The first sketches were made in 2005 although the construction did not start until late in 2008 because of the overheated construction market.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemSkylightsLibartSolaGlide Inclined Retractable SkylightSkylightsFAKROWooden pivot roof windows FYP-V proSkyThere is a well-developed grammar in Swedish building culture on how to extend a house with a traditional gable roof; usually a ridge is established at right angles to the existing one. To be successful this requires that the extension is subordinate in size. The possibility to build in a completely traditional style was tested in a sketch, but was found too obtrusive because of the size. The new wing “devoured” the old house. Thus we chose instead to aim for maximum contrast in expression. Save this picture!© Krister EngströmOn the eastern part of the plot is a beautiful old stand of trees. The proposed movement in this project follows the principle often used in Japanese garden art; first you spot the main vista (the orchard), then it disappears out of view – but is not forgotten. In the third step of the sequence the viewer stands before the garden again. A large custom made shelf is the element that obscures the garden in the second step and forms a filter between the hallway and the living room with its view of the garden. Save this picture!© Krister EngströmA new corridor and entrance is introduced between the new building and the existing house. From this corridor almost all the rooms of the house can be reached and it can also provide a more representative entrance to the living room when necessary. The new living room has a maximum of openness towards the garden, but is closed to the street to ensure privacy. At the same time, the city planning office required window openings in this facade to lighten up the impression from the street. The solution was to shape the aluminium sheets of the facade as a trellis for growing vines. It always takes time for the vines to establish, therefore we have designed a pattern that brings a lifelike quality to the facade in the absence of greenery. The laser cut pattern is inspired by vines and forms a favorable shape for the tendrils to climb on. Save this picture!© Krister EngströmThe house is founded on masonry walls. The bottom floor is constructed of 220mm beams while the roof is supported by glulam beams. As the facade material was chosen 3 mm anodized aluminium plates applied with stainless recessed screws on an adjustable framework of galvanized steel profiles. All sheets are prefabricated at the workshop. The extension is heated with floor heating. Save this picture!© Krister EngströmIn Sweden there is a long tradition of working with steel sheeting (about 0.6 mm thick), connecting the different sheets with folds to achieve an impervious surface. This technique is mainly used on horizontal surfaces; when applied to facades the steel (about 1.0 mm thick) is often folded into cartridges to achieve stiffness. Both of these applications will result in a buckled and dented surface because of temperature movements combined with the fragility of the thin plate. Japan with the architect Fumihiko Maki as chief advocate has a highly evolved tradition of using thicker sheet metal in facades. These give an entirely different precision and a smooth impression and require new detailing as they can not be shaped on-site by sheet-metal workers. Since we wanted a contrast between the existing and new house, we chose 3mm thick aluminium plates to achieve a high precision. Save this picture!© Krister EngströmAluminium can be utilized with a raw or anodized surface. Eventually raw aluminium forms an oxide layer, but it’s just one-hundredth as thick as is achieved in anodizing. It also makes a more organic impression with streaks from running water and a living surface. An advantage is however the ability to bend the raw aluminum on the construction site. Save this picture!© Krister EngströmSince we were seeking a precise expression we chose anodized plate. The plates were first processed mechanically and subsequently sent to a finishing company that through an electrolytic process created an oxide layer on the plates to a selected thickness (25 micrometres in this case). This provides a 100-year durability which meets the clients request for minimal maintenance. This oxide is as hard and brittle as the glaze on china in terms of hardness rendering it impossible to perform any kind of processing to the anodized plates without cracking this layer. Save this picture!SectionWe chose to work with subcontractors to the automotive industry for the production of the plates. If one dares to say that the Swedish construction companies often work with a dubious precision, the Saab and Volvo subcontractors excel at a high level. They work with digital fabrication and industry tolerances +/- 0.1mm compared with the permitted construction tolerance of +/- 10mm. Riboverken in Gothenburg, laser cut all of the plates with CNC (Computer Numerical Control) according to our drawings. In this process, it is no more costly to cut a curved line than a straight. With prefabricated plates, you get a clash between two different sets of tolerances; the exact surface and the imprecision of the studded frame. This is addressed by an adjustable framework for the facade plates. Save this picture!PlanThe eye-catching pattern on the gables is a plant motif that are developed by us and translated into digital manufacturing drawings; also laser cut at Riboverken. Laser cutting can be done to a certain thickness. For thicker plates you have to switch to water-jet cutting. Aluminium is available in a variety of alloys and because we wanted a small bending radius and a anodizing we chose alloy 5005.Project gallerySee allShow lessOptimistic Architecture YearbookArticlesA Campus Lived for a Sensory City / N+B, C+D & Hitoshi AbeArticles Share “COPY” 2010 Photographs CopyHouses•Alingsas, Sweden ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/84355/aluminum-house-unit-arkitektur-ab Clipboard Save this picture!© Krister Engström+ 30 Share “COPY” Aluminum House / Unit Arkitektur AB ArchDaily Architects: Unit Arkitektur AB Area Area of this architecture project Area:  65 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

During that period, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac completed 3.03 million non-foreclosure solutions that kept families in their homes, which included loan modifications (the most common, at 1.92 million), repayment plans, forbearance plans, charge-offs-in-lieu of foreclosure, and Fannie Mae’s HomeSaver Advance program.By comparison, during that time, the GSEs completed 644,846 non-foreclosure solutions in which the home was forfeited, including short sales and deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure.The total of non-foreclosure solutions completed by the GSEs, which includes all home retention and forfeiture actions, was 3.674 million over the seven and a half year period from the start of the conservatorships until February 2016.The gap has been widening between the two over the last four years. For the full year of 2013, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac completed 341,899 home retention actions compared to 105,829 home forfeiture actions—approximately a 3 to 1 ratio. The next year, the ratio expanded to approximately 5 to 1 (254,054 compared to 53,124). In 2015, the ratio approached 6 to 1 (196,815 compared to 35,251), and for the first two months of 2016, the ratio has been more than 6 to 1 26,836 compared to 4,564).If home forfeiture actions continue on their monthly pace from the first two months of 2016, there will be only 27,000 of them for the full year 2016.Also indicative of a healing housing market is the fact that fewer non-foreclosure solutions have been needed since 2013 mostly due to a sustained substantial decline in delinquencies on mortgage loans in the last few years. The total number of non-foreclosure solutions (including forfeitures and retention actions) has gone from 447,728 in 2013 to 307,218 in 2014 to 232,066 in 2015. If the number continues to decline at the rate of the first two months of 2016, there will be 188,000 foreclosure prevention actions for the full year of 2016.Click here to view the entire FHFA February 2016 Foreclosure Prevention Report.
