Written Answers — Treasury: Electric Vehicles: VAT (13 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: From April 2025, electric and hybrid cars, vans and motorcycles will begin to pay VED in the same way as petrol and diesel vehicles. The anticipated impact is summarised in the Policy Costings document that was published alongside Autumn Statement 2022, and can be found here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/media/6375caf8e90e0 72848403c47/Autumn_Statement_2022_Policy_Costings_.pdf...

Written Answers — Treasury: Tobacco: Smuggling (13 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: In July 2023 new powers were given to Trading Standards to make referrals to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) where they find evidence of tobacco products that don’t comply with the UK Tobacco Track and Trace System. The referral process which practically implements these powers started in October 2023. HMRC periodically publishes outputs of its tobacco strategy, and will publish the outputs...

Written Answers — Treasury: Business: Insolvency (13 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: The Government was pleased to see that the latest statistics reported by the Insolvency Service showed the number of corporate insolvencies in March 2024 had fallen by 28% compared to March 2023. The Government continues to help businesses, including through a swathe of policy measures in the Autumn explicitly aimed at ‘Backing British business’. Recent and current policies supporting...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 12 - Charge and Main Rate for Financial Year 2025 ( 8 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: We agree. We want taxes to come down, but we are not going to announce tax decisions from this Dispatch Box outside fiscal events. It is clear for all to see that this Conservative Government believe in lower taxes. We have reduced national insurance contributions for 29 million people by some 30% in just the last six months, and the record is very clear on that.

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 12 - Charge and Main Rate for Financial Year 2025 ( 8 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: It is neither unusual nor incorrect for a Government, or any party, to set out a long-term ambition to let the public know where we stand on taxation and what we want to see in the future. In 2010, for example, we said that we wanted to increase the personal allowance for income tax to £10,000, and we met that. Actually, we exceeded it. It is now over £12,500, so a person in this country...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 12 - Charge and Main Rate for Financial Year 2025 ( 8 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: As I said, it is a long-term ambition. It is right for a party that is serious about governing to set a direction for the country. I know it is an unusual idea for the hon. Gentleman that having a plan for government is the right thing to do, but we have made it very clear to the British people that, if they vote for a Conservative Government at the next general election, their taxes will...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 12 - Charge and Main Rate for Financial Year 2025 ( 8 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: I was waiting for a four-hour speech and it never came—that was four minutes, but what a four minutes! Let me thank hon. Members for their contributions to today’s debate. I will respond to some of the points that have been raised at the end of my remarks, but before doing so let me directly address some of the new clauses that have been tabled. New clause 2 seeks the publication of a...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 12 - Charge and Main Rate for Financial Year 2025 ( 8 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: I will give the hon. Lady the courtesy of addressing new clause 7 in due course. She is right to highlight that the new rate for small businesses will keep around 70% of businesses in the country at 19% when those that are most profitable move to 25%, but look at the entire package of support for small businesses. It shows that the Government are supportive of our high streets and small...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 12 - Charge and Main Rate for Financial Year 2025 ( 8 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: We now move on to debate clauses 12, 13 and 19. Before I delve into the detail of the clauses, however, let me first briefly set out how they fit into this Finance Bill. The Government remain focused on taking long-term decisions to strengthen the economy by driving productivity, increasing the number of people in high-wage, high-skilled jobs, and boosting investment. The Government are also...

Written Answers — Treasury: Gambling: Taxation ( 8 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: The consultation will be published in due course.

Written Answers — Treasury: Electric Vehicles: Excise Duties ( 8 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: As with all taxes, the Government keeps the Expensive Car Supplement under review, and any changes will be announced at a future fiscal event.

Written Answers — Treasury: Tobacco: Smuggling ( 8 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: In January 2021 HMRC and National Trading Standards launched Operation CeCe. This joint initiative builds on decades of partnership working with local Trading Standards Officers. This supports them to undertake enforcement activity including the sharing of information and intelligence to target and seize illegal tobacco, disruption of the illicit tobacco market and prevention of fraud in...

Treasury: Small Businesses: Fiscal Support ( 7 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: Small businesses drive our economy, and we support them to thrive using levers across Government, whether through our small business rates relief, by increasing the VAT registration threshold, or providing reliefs such as the annual investment allowance.

Treasury: Small Businesses: Fiscal Support ( 7 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: My right hon. Friend is right that in the autumn statement the Government extended retail, hospitality and leisure relief in England, essentially to cut tax for 230,000 businesses—a tax cut worth £2.5 billion. The Barnett formula allows the Welsh Labour Government to offer similar relief to Welsh businesses, and it is disappointing, if not surprising, that they have chosen not to.

Treasury: Small Businesses: Fiscal Support ( 7 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: As I was saying, we have a 75% relief for most high street businesses. I encourage the hon. Lady to look at the package as a whole. We have increased the VAT threshold, bringing 28,000 businesses like the one she describes out of paying any VAT at all, on top of a range of other measures.

Treasury: Small Businesses: Fiscal Support ( 7 Mai 2024)

Gareth Davies: I know that my hon. Friend is a great champion of all businesses in Morley and across Leeds because I have seen it at first hand. I point out to her as well that the Government have reduced taxation on small businesses, we have increased the VAT threshold, and we have a 75% rate relief for retail, hospitality and leisure businesses, which she alluded to. It is this Conservative Government who...
