No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm KCS-content WALKING BOOTS ARE DE RIGEURA score for good sense at the FT/HSBC breakfast event: six men were settled into white armchairs onstage for a panel debate yesterday, but only one man’s sensibly clad feet stood out. Gao Xiqing, president of China’s sovereign wealth fund, shunned the standard suede or polished leather business shoe. Not for him the peril of slipping on Davos’ icy pavements, or the inconvenience of changing shoes every time he entered the Belvedere. Instead, this free spirit and reported climbing fan sported a clunky pair of brown walking boots. It turns out that when you have $200bn in assets under management, you can wear whatever shoes you like.SHAKIRA IS THE ONEAs for free spirits of another kind, Gao’s fellow panellist Colombian finance minister Juan Carlos Echeverry was determined to add a little philosophy to the mix to spice up his remarks. Asked about what rising prices mean for commodities exporters, he took an unusual angle: “I think of Nietzsche and the trans-valuation of all values,” he said. “What used to be good is bad and what used to be bad – to be poor and resource-rich – is good.” So who is Echeverry’s modern “übermensch”? It turns out, it’s Shakira (pictured right). “If Nietzsche were born today, Shakira would be his über-frau,” he declared. We didn’t quite catch the rationale, but hell, anyone who can put Shakira and Nietsche together in a debate about capital flows deserves brownie pointsCLIMATE CHANGE IS COOLIt’s not just about networking, Davos’ most ardent supporters insist. It’s about getting together to solve the world’s problems. A plethora of events sets out to prove the point, with Climate Group holding a lunch this week for “a select group of international leaders from the finance and energy sectors to discuss the collective leadership needed to support progressive policy measures and finance solutions”, sponsored by HSBC and Standard Chartered. A sceptic might wonder how all this caviar-munching, champagne-quaffing and speech-giving helps the environment?Of course, it doesn’t do any harm – unless, that is, you count the thousands of flights delegates took to get here, the lines of traffic crowding the town, the gratuitous patio heaters on balconies that no one is occupying and the helicopters and private jets shedding their airy exhaust over the pristine Alps.One director told me she was actually getting quite tired of being ferried around in shiny Mercedes. Yesterday’s shimmering sunny weather was one for walking – if you could cross the road between the fleets of shiny executive-carriers crawling along the Promenade. It’s all in a day’s climate action. TIME TO RELAXNever to miss a chance to make extra cash off its delegates’ thirst for self-promotion, the World Economic Forum has this year invested in an entire stand-alone temporary extension to the Belvedere Hotel. The structure is a behemoth of purchased offices and lounges, with a variety of firms and media outlets setting up shop in the new building. One of the most important requirements, of course, is ample space for “lounging”, without which many of the delegates would be at a loss for large chunks of the day.

Tab NZ exceeds expectations in first month with $32.1m GGR

first_imgThe operator – which launched in August succeed the Racing Industry Transition Agency, itself a successor to the New Zealand Racing Board, in an overhaul of New Zealand’s racing industry – saw turnover rise 14.9% year-on-year to NZD$208.2m (£106.5m/€117.3m/USD$137.1m), 10.5% above budget. Of the 10 most popular betting events in the month, three, including the two most-bet events, were matches in Super Rugby – New Zealand’s main rugby union competition – and the remaining seven were in Australia’s leading rugby league competition, the National Rugby League. The Winx Stakes at Randwick was the largest source of turnover for horse racing. The second stage was the passing of the Racing Industry Bill, which was filed in December last year, and passed the New Zealand legislature in June 2020, a month later than expected due to the pandemic. Finance Tab NZ exceeded expectations and its predecessor’s performance in its first month of activity, achieving year-on-year growth in turnover, revenue and profit in August. 29th September 2020 | By Aaron Noy Sports turnover rose by 36.0% year-on-year to $71.7m, thanks in part to the high volume of sporting events in August. Racing turnover grew 10.1% from 2019 to $136.2m, with domestic racing bringing in stakes of $54.0m and international racing $82.2m. On this total, Tab NZ made $32.1m in gross revenue, up 9.7% from budget and 5.0% from 2019.  TAB NZ said its analysis suggested a major reason for this may have been that many customers who bet on overseas racing while domestic racing was suspended because of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) have now started betting on both domestic and international racing. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter The operator said a combination of high betting margins and good cost management helped it surpass expectations. Regions: Oceania New Zealand Its operating expenses, meanwhile, totalled $9.7m, down 21.1% from 2019 and 0.2% below budget. In May, RITA cut 230 jobs including 150 permanent staff at the Totalisator Agency Board in order to provide annual cost savings of more than $11m. It said it had “no alternative” but to make the layoffs. Tab NZ was created in a two-stage legislative process, the first of which saw the Racing Reform Act implemented from 1 July, 2019. This saw the Racing Industry Transition Agency established as the New Zealand Racing Board’s successor and a new point of consumption tax levied on offshore bookmakers. The vast majority of the operator’s profit was came from betting, at $11.9m, 22.7% above budget. It made an additional $1.4m in gaming profit, 26.3% below the budgeted contribution, and made an expected $500,000 loss in racing integrity unit payments. “The board is encouraged by the trading performance for the month however it remains cautious at this early stage of the season on the ability to meet full year projections,” it said. “This is given the ongoing uncertainty presented by Covid-19 and the potential for further disruption to domestic and international product supply.” Tab NZ said total gaming revenue was down 26.3% from 2019 to $2.0m, due primarily to lockdown measures in Auckland, with all non-Auckland sites in line with budget. It added that following the reopening of retail venues in the country’s largest city, “retail turnover in Auckland returned, almost immediately, to pre-lockdown levels”. It did not detail betting revenue, but this would leave $30.1m of non-gaming revenue. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Tab NZ distributed a total of $11.5m to New Zealand communities, up 7.5% from budget. Of this total, $9.7m was Tab NZ’s fixed contribution, while it paid a further $1.3m in the Betting Information User Charge (BIUC) and $500,000 towards the betting levy repeal. The operator also noted that it saw around 94,000 customers during the month, a number that is comparable to a typical November, when the Melbourne Cup, NZ Cup and during some years Rugby World Cup are all major sources of betting activity. Email Address The Tab NZ board said that, despite the success in August, it would exercise caution about the year ahead due to the continued threat of the virus.

Charity tax break system ‘favours the wealthy’

first_imgCharity tax break system ‘favours the wealthy’ Howard Lake | 12 August 2008 | News  19 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis A tax break that favours rich charity givers by €18 million a year should be extended to everyone, according to Cork’s Labour TD Ciarán Lynch.Mr Lynch said PAYE employees are being discriminated against because they cannot claim relief on donations, like self-assessed givers and big business can. Mr Lynch said the system is skewed towards benefiting the wealthy over ordinary workers and could be depriving good causes of extra cash.He has demanded the Finance Department change rules which say the €25 million a year tax break on donations by the PAYE sector can only be claimed back by the charity receiving the money, and not the individual giving it.The Cork TD insists a reform would actually see more money going to charities as PAYE donors would bump up their contributions to them if they knew they could claim a substantial stake back as self-assessed workers do.“The current system would seem to favour the rich at the expense of PAYE employees and that is not fair and that is an anomaly which needs correcting. I don’t think such a change would mean charities getting less money, quite the opposite,” he said.“If PAYE people know they will be able to claim the relief back, they will probably give the charity more, or invest the rebate in another charity of their choice, so in that sense everyone will win,” he added.Just over €25.1 million was claimed in tax relief by charities and approved bodies in 2007 on donations by 80,974 PAYE employees who donated a total of €46.8 million.That was down from the previous years’ amount of €28.4 million claimed on 84,373 gifts from the PAYE sector on donations of €58.4 million.The last year for which self-assessed figured are available, 2005, shows that such people gave €48 million to charity and personally claimed some €18 million back.Donations of more than €250 are eligible for refunds and companies can claim money back on such gifts as a trading expense.

Jay Iorizzo, the director of campus recreation, addressed these concerns in an email.“All student employees who worked during the outage are being paid,” Iorizzo wrote. “We had some students stay late when we had no power.”Students who have regular workout routines were upset by the two-day outage.“I try to workout at the Rec a few times every week after class,” said Brooke Wissenbach, a junior interior design major. “It was frustrating to have it closed.”There is still no news on when a new transformer will be acquired.
