The rule change, announced through a nationality practice note, means foreign companies will have to sell at least 50 per cent of their shares in London, where previously they only had to issue 25 per cent of shares in the UK. The rule replaces a previous more stringent rule, which was designed to ensure no one party or group of shareholders could control a foreign company. But under the previous regime it was still difficult to work out a firm’s ownership structure.The only way around the rule was for companies to become incorporated in the UK. Sharelast_img read more

League of Women Voters opposes Amendment 5

Today their analysis and recommendation is on Amendment 5.From the League of Women VotersAmendment 5: OpposeRequires a two-thirds vote of the Legislature to approve any new or increased taxes or fees, rather than a simple majority.This proposed amendment would require that all increases in taxes or fees, or the creation of any new taxes or fees, must pass both chambers of the Florida Legislature by a two-thirds vote, or 67 percent.Under current law, nearly every bill related to taxes or fees must pass the state House and Senate by a simple majority. (The state has a few exceptions, including increases in the corporate tax beyond 5 percent, which requires a three-fifths approval.)This amendment would dramatically expand those supermajority requirements to include taxes on sales, gasoline, alcohol and unemployment, as well as fees for fishing, drivers licenses and concealed firearms licenses, to name a few (a legislative analysis of the proposal is here).In the Florida House, that means 80 of its 120 members would have to vote in favor of raising taxes or fees. In the Senate, it would take a vote of 27 of that body’s 40 members.While bills in the Legislature often contain multiple provisions, this amendment requires that any tax or fee increase must stand by itself in a separate bill.Amendment 5 does not place any limits on tax or fee increases by local governments, such as cities and school boards. The amendment does not include a provision that would allow for tax or fee increases during times of emergency.If the amendment passes, Florida will join about a dozen other states that require supermajority votes to raise taxes. The last attempt to limit government revenue or spending was in 2012, when the Legislature placed on the ballot an amendment that tied the amount of money the state can collect in taxes and fees to population changes and inflation. That amendment, known by the acronym TABOR, for taxpayer bill of rights, was defeated.Florida already is ranked by the Tax Foundation as the fourth most business-friendly state in the nation when it comes to taxes, and Wallethub ranks Florida as the 47th overall lowest tax burden in the nation.

The boost it brings not only to the economy but to local charities can’t be compared. The charities will tell you they could never raise the kind of money that the Pro-Am pump into them”.On the last occasion of the Pro-Am, hosted by in excess of €30 million was raised for nominated charities in the Mid West region and it is expected that a similar figure will be achieved from this year’s event.Mr McManus has confirmed that there have been more requests to play in this year’s tournament than spaces available.The inaugural Pro-Am made its debut in 1990 and since then the star studded event has gone from strength to strength, putting Limerick on the map  as a destination for the stars and drawing in thousands of spectators, with 30,000 fans expected next Monday and Tuesday, which will bring a significant and much needed boost to the economy.A spokesperson confirms that the colours of Munster and Ireland will be dappled across the greenery of the Adare setting as spectators choose caps from one of eight different colours, representing Ireland and each of the counties in Munster, at a cost of €50 for entrance to both days of the event.Bringing the tournament bang up to date, McManus wasted no time in introducing an iPhone application which is available free of charge to download, offering up to date information and previews of the event and once again promoting the region.With a staggering €55 million raised for local charities since its inception and providing an immeasurable boost to the local economy,  it is widely acknowledged that the JP McManus Invitational Pro-Am has made an outstanding contribution to Limerick life and has portrayed a glowing image of the region around the world.

Mother’s shock at cemetery find

first_imgNewsLocal NewsMother’s shock at cemetery findBy admin – October 28, 2010 678 WhatsApp “At first we thought they were animal bones, but there were jaw bones with teeth still in them that could only have been human,” the woman,  still in shock, told the Limerick Post.“There were also hip bones, a femur and other remains that looked like fingers.“My son was fascinated but I found it spooky. I couldn’t believe the bones would just be lying around like that. It seemed so disrespectful to the dead”.The Limerick Post visited the graveyard   and saw the bones, just as they had been described.The most disturbing sight was part of a skull sitting in the middle of an old plot. There were three molar teeth still attached to the jaw bone.Atop another grave sat a bone with a prominent joint, which once would have been attached to a hip or shoulder socket.A local undertaker told the Limerick Post that it is known for bones to have been unearthed in the opening of graves, but “they are usually buried again”.Cemeteries superintendent Flan Haskett said he couldn’t comment on whether the bones were human or not, or how they would have got there, and that he would need to see the remains in question.

Whistleblower loses her job

first_imgNewsLocal NewsWhistleblower loses her jobBy admin – May 24, 2012 735 WhatsApp Linkedin Print Advertisement Previous articleQuad-bikers put fear into Plassey walkersNext articleLimerick FC face Shamrock Rovers admincenter_img Facebook Email Twitter A woman employed by a contract cleaning company has been removed from her job after she reported an incident of alleged elder abuse at a city nursing home. The woman – who cannot be named for legal reasons – was working as a contract cleaner when, she claims, she saw a woman in her 80’s thrown into a chair by a staff member. “The elderly lady was grabbed by an arm and thrown into a chair. She landed on her back. The person who did this was a carer employed by the nursing home, I was so angry, I had to report it to the nursing home management. At the time, they said I had done the right thing to bring the matter to their attention”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up She said she was “disgusted” as the elderly resident in question is “probably the most vulnerable in that home. She hardly speaks”.The cleaner and a colleague who also witnessed the incident, but who was not involved in the reporting, were called to a meeting with the head of the nursing home weeks later and asked to go over the details again.“But apart from that, I heard nothing more about it. I got on with my job, then one day, I was told that my bosses at the contract cleaning company were having a meeting with the nursing home”.Eight weeks after making her report, the contract cleaner was called to a meeting with a member of management at the company.“I was told I had crossed the line by making the report and that for the comfort of the client (the nursing home), I was being suspended without pay. I asked her if there was anything wrong with my cleaning work and she said no, but she had no other work for me”.The suspended employee contacted employment rights officer with the Limerick Resource Centre for the Unemployed, Frank McDonald.“We arranged a meeting with the company and I told them that they could not, under employment law, suspend a worker who had done nothing wrong. They followed no procedure, there were no warnings of any kind and this lady had done nothing but report something which was very wrong. When I mentioned that the suspension was illegal, they said that they had not used the right words – then they said she was being laid off”.Mr McDonald told the Limerick Post that the company said they could only offer the cleaner “a couple of hours here and there and the hours were at times which would not work for her as she is a lone parent raising two children. She has lost her job because she spoke up and that should not be allowed to happen”.Mr McDonald said he is taking steps to establish whether the complaint was investigated by the nursing home.When the Limerick Post contacted the contract cleaning company, a spokesperson declined to comment.last_img read more

Consumer Spending Rises for Second Straight Month

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Consumer spending indicators rose for a second straight month in September as the labor market showed signs of improvement.Deloitte released Thursday the results of its latest monthly Consumer Spending Index, which climbed in September to 4.21 from an August reading of 4.11.The index tracks consumer cash flow through a handful of measures—tax burden, initial unemployment claims, real wages, and new home prices—as an indicator of future consumer spending.Out of those four gauges, only one improved: Real hourly wages were up 0.5 percent from August to $8.86 in September, Deloitte reported.Among the other indicators, initial unemployment claims increased to 303,000 last month but remained 10.3 percent down from the same period last year. New home prices also deteriorated slightly, falling 1.4 percent month-over-month to a median $116,000.Finally, Deloitte’s tax burden measure was unchanged, with the tax rate increasing only marginally to 11.8 percent.”A rise in real wages boosted the Index this month,” said Daniel Bachman, Deloitte’s senior U.S. economist. “Although unemployment claims remain at the level of the previous month, seeing them continue to hover around the 300,000 mark is a positive sign for the labor market. The uptick in wages—although only of one month’s duration—is also consistent with the improving labor market.”If employment and wages continue this positive trajectory, consumers are likely to respond with more confidence and higher spending,” he finished.
