We recently held an enquiry into business rates and we cannot underestimate the significance of the reforms but could lead to even more problems with local authority spending if it is not managed properly. It is my hope that councils believe the higher income proposals mean they will seek to reinvest the money.

I welcome the recognition that role broadband is particularly important for increased growth. Will he make a commitment that no small rural business will be left behind when it comes to digital connectivity? An excellent point. If we want to help everywhere achieve its potential, then we know the prosperity of many rural areas is held back if they do not have good digital connectivity, so that is an ambition we set out in his green paper.

If you’ve been riding shotgun with Petrolicious since the early days, you’ll recognize the name James Chen. If not, you need to catch up—we’ve featured not one , not two , but three of his machines in our Made To Drive film series. Founder of Axis Wheels , longtime friend of Petrolicious, and overall great guy, James Chen recently had the opportunity to experience a very intimate event through his home country: Rally Nippon 2016 in Taiwan. Mr. Chen was eager to share this incredible classic car contest with us and we’re sure glad he did, as it was quite the spectacle. Here’s the inside scoop from the man himself. Andrew Golseth: So, in 2016 the Rally Nippon Japanese event was held in Taiwan? James Chen: The story is a bit philosophical. I was born in Taiwan and moved to the United States when I was six. I try to go back on an annual basis. I’ve got some business interests over there and some family, so I go there once a year, or every other year.

That means, in order to protect your money, you shouldnt deposit more than £75,000 in one account. But, the rules on what counts as an individual financial institution are complicated. Rather than each bank or building society counting as an individual, the FSCS works by banking licence or group. So, if two banks are owned by the same parent company you would only be covered for £75,000 across both banks. For example, Bank of Scotland owns both Halifax and Birmingham Midshires. That means if you had accounts with Halifax, Bank of Scotland and Birmingham Midshires the FSCS would only cover you for £75,000 across all three. Any extra cash you held with them would potentially be lost if Bank of Scotland went bust. Numerous banks are owned by other banks so it is well worth checking you arent accidently above the FSCS limit because you have multiple bank accounts with the same banking group.
