FROM THE PAPERS
Synopsis: Short summaries of articles we think you will find useful from some of the weekends broadsheets. At the end of each summary is a link to take you directly to the relevant article. Please see Helpful Hints at the end of the bulletin.
Financial Times:” Pensions industry concerned at loss of expertise”. The UK pension industry called for stability on Friday after the ousting of key policy makers in the general election, including the long-serving pension’s minister, Steve Webb. Click here to go directly to the article
Financial Times: “Devolved Welsh stamp duty could hit prime homes”. Estate agents fear prime property purchases could be targeted by the first Welsh tax in over 800 years.
Financial Times:” Charity tax reliefs double in six years”. Well-off taxpayers are claiming record levels of relief on their charitable gifts, reducing their tax liabilities by £1.2bn last year. Click here to go directly to the article
The Times:” Your financial action plan post-election”. The Conservative victory in the general election came as a shock to many, after months of pollsters’ predictions of a hung parliament and an ugly constitutional crisis. The first reaction of most financial advisers and analysts was to breathe a huge sigh of relief and to welcome the new stability foreseen in the short term.
The Telegraph:” General election win and your money: what to expect in the next five years”. Telegraph Money looks at what promises the Conservatives made for your finances
The Telegraph:” A warm welcome to the new ‘minister for personal finance'”. Whoever David Cameron chooses to promote to his government – or evict from it – we will definitely have a new pension’s minister. The previous incumbent, Steve Webb, was a member of the Liberal Democrats, who are no longer needed in government. Mr Webb was also one of the many Lib Dem MPs to lose their seat.
1. LINKS TO ARTICLES:
We have now provided direct links to the articles referred to in the article. These can be accessed by click on the “To go directly to the article click here” at the end of each article summary
2. REQUIREMENT TO SUBSCRIBE TO SITES:
As some Opus Gold users will be aware, many of the broadsheet newspapers that are traditionally covered in our From the Papers bulletin, are changing (or have changed) their free online access to articles.
Currently the Financial Times and Weekend Financial Times only allows access to view 8 articles a month free, then requiring the user to subscribe to their online service. From 1 July 2010 The Times, Saturday Times and Sunday Times articles are no longer available for free online. Instead a daily or monthly fee will have to be paid to access the articles.
We are aware of the inconvenience this will cause to our users. Unfortunately, due to the stringent copyright rules enforced by the newspapers we are not allowed to copy the articles onto our bulletin to make them available to Opus Gold users, thus our only option is to put a direct link to the article on the newspapers own website.
Although we will continue to produce From the Papers bulletins linking to these articles, users should be aware that access to many will now be blocked unless a personal subscription to the newspapers site is taken.
Once again we apologise for this inconvenience but this is something outside of our control.
