PETALING JAYA: Sunway Bhd’s net profit for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017 rose 5.69% to RM107.91 million from RM102.10 million a year ago due to lower income tax expense. In a filing with Bursa Malaysia yesterday, the group reported lower income tax expense of RM27.34 million during the quarter compared with RM32.84 million a year ago. However, the group’s pre-tax profit for the quarter fell 13.04% to RM153.12 million from RM176.08 million a year ago due to lower contribution from most of its business segments. The property development segment reported a pre-tax profit of RM25.1 million compared with RM69.1 million a year ago due to lower revenue, which was affected by lower sales and progress billings from local development projects. In addition, no sales were recorded for the group’s wholly owned Avant Parc project in Singapore during the quarter as the project was fully sold in the second quarter of 2016.

S. Attorney Chris Christie. Chase had been on federal law enforcement’s radar since the late 1990s. He had been quoted in national media reports as a spokesman for the Animal Liberation Front, which the FBI once called a “serious domestic terrorist threat.” The Beagle Freedom Project has adopted far more mainstream tactics — and it has found some success. Five statesMinnesota, Nevada, New York, Connecticut and California — have passed laws requiring lab animals to be made available for adoption. The Illinois state Senate passed a version of the bill last month. The nonprofit beagle group — which reported nearly $1.6 million in income in its 2015 filing to the IRS — is now turning its attention to Congress, which it hopes will consider similar legislation for National Institutes of Health-funded researchers. Its focus is on about 380 labs nationwide that use about 65,000 dogs and 20,000 cats per year.

stop the cuts from SNP and the Tories. If you are in power and Labour were in power in the UK, they would pay an extra penny on income tax and they would have a lower threshold than the 40p rate. Plus whatever tax rises Jeremy Corbyn decides for people earning over 80,000, plus a 50p rate over 150,000? Is what I have said correct?.

The Kyiv Post took to the the streets to see what’s on offer on the market today for those investors willing to take the risks. The downtown fixer upper What’s on offer: A fifth-floor, 52-square meter apartment in need of renovation Price: $69,000/$1,300/square meters Address: 25 Saksahanskoho St. Agents say this type of apartment is typically what investors look for in Kyiv’s property market: a “Stalinka” — which means features like 3.4-meter high ceilings — in a highly desirable city center location. This flat is located in close proximity to Kyiv’s Olympic Stadium and Lva Tolstogo. It’s a prime target for an investor looking to make rental income. It requires a full renovation, which could cost around $30,000. But even factoring that in, and without negotiating on the sale price, local agents say it could generate an annual rate of return of up 10 percent when rented for around $900 per month.

Mike Rutherford thinks the process for buying a new car on finance is too confusing for most, and needs to be simplified 2017-05-29 14:00 Hoping to score a brand new car, but havent got enough in your savings account to pay for it? I’m not surprised. The average price of a factory-fresh model is now around £30,000 – that’s more than the annual income enjoyed by most people. So just as most Brits need loans when shopping for homes of their own, the same is true of the motoring masses seeking the keys to new cars. The Finance and Leasing Association has just reported that the value of finance deals used to buy new cars soared to a monthly record of £3.6bn in March. • Best new car deals 2017 Were it not for such financial products for seemingly grateful consumers, the motor industry probably couldnt survive with cars averaging £30k a pop. But the Financial Conduct Authority is uncomfortable.
