All primary schools should only give milk or orange drinks controlled by Government with little or sugar in the product. Sort drinks sold should have no sugar just a proportion o glucose with non-sugar flavoring like in old days. Sugar sold in bags should be rationed to 1kg bags per fortnight, and removal of sugar from can stuffs from the preservatives under la and not taxed. to lev a tax will not solve the problem and as industries will still not abided as they not paying the tax just the consumer. The Governments should go back and make a sugar and salt act and ban these two items from all foods and soft drinks starting from 2017 and cafés be restricted to two sachets of white sugar for tea and brown for coffee also starting in 2017. Sugar Tax is not the cure will cause to people to carry on regardless while introduction law will have positive result and should include the removal of sugar from chocolates and sweets and just have small amount glucose instead

Governments Easing Tax And Regulation Burdens

Though I was born in the USA, I have lived abroad for 30 years, and pay taxes in New Zealand (yes, I agree, an easy tax system!). I have no assets or income from the USA, yet because I was born there, and the US has citizenship based taxation, I am told to file US tax forms every year. The USA IRS tax department estimates that a tax return for a US citizen living abroad can take up to 13 days to complete! This is expensive and a waste of time (no US taxes owing for most filers). Also US government requires an annual FBAR, or declaration of Financial accounts based abroad - including account name, number and balance. This is my LOCAL bank, just down the street. This issue affects 9 million Americans living abroad. FATCA is the compliance arm that enforces citizenship based taxation.

Governments Easing Tax And Regulation Burdens

Really? As the reality on the ground is quite different as it relates to FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) which is the enforcement tool of the US practice of Citizenship Based Taxation. This is not only affecting the 9M disenfranchised Americans living overseas but other countries citizens who are caught up in the Kafkaesque US tax system (e.g. Accidental Americans). I highly encourage you to do further research as the reality on the ground is quite different than what you wrote in this article. You can start by consulting the American Expatriates group on Facebook so you can get a better view of what is happening to the aforementioned populations: https://www.facebook.com/groups/AmericanExpatriates/

Think Tank: Protectionism A Danger To Canada

Perhaps my math has gotten rusty, but how does the following make sense? "The Institute pointed out that in 2015, the value of Canadian exports accounted for 21.5 percent of Canada's economy. This is up from 25 percent in 1988..." UP? Either the numbers are incorrect or this line needs to be rewritten. Thank you

Poland Blocked From Levying Supermarket Tax

Foreign companies enter the Central and Eastern European markets with a substantial advantage in retailing. The small, national chains but, most especially the very small, local shoppes suffer. Since 2005, I can attest to the fact that many small and family owned markets, and shoppes (clothing, shoes, furniture) have gone out if business here in Bydgoszcz. The European Union must not punish the small businesses through laws that SEEM to be protecting freedom of movement while placing family and small businesses at a distinct disadvantage in competition. And NO, I do not own nor operate a small business; I am retired.

Ireland To Keep Tabs On Existing Tax Rulings

its clear to see Ireland collected its own tax re googles earnings in Ireland.
this was falsely represented as a percentage of total tax owed by google in Europe etc, we should sue eu commission for falsely representing figures and downgrading our good name leading to accusations of leprechaun economics ,banana republic etc. They then charge us to become tax collectors for other states inside and outside the European union.

'Backpacker Tax' Would Cut Australian Visitor Numbers

Backpackers pay the same tax as everyone else working in Australia. In most countries people are treated as tax residents if they spend there more than 6 months a year. That's common practice around the world. No one has any privileges here. What they want to do is discriminatory. I don't understand why government wants to treat them worse. I am potential backpacker in Australia. Sorry I probably was, cause it's not only that I have to pay airfare from Europe + riddiculously high visa fee + 500 USD for required TOEFL certificate (as I'm from non-english speaking country) and then work my ass off in a job that no one else wants I'd have to pay more than other people doing the same job and pay normal AUS prices in the store while making less than normal minimum wage probably. It's also psychological effect. When I think that if I'd go this year I could earn 100 and going next year for the same effort I'd have to give 1/3 of my money to government for doing literally nothing for me then it doesnt make sense. And the truth is in reality youll feel it even more painful as youll probably get the same accomodation and basic spending, so it's the savings we have to look at. Hypothetically basic expenses are 50. Then instead of having 50 savings you'll have 17. That's a huge cut. Imagine at the end of the stay you have 1700 AUD left instead of planned 5k. You can buy airfare back home... Good luck to people who'll decide to go. You are brave

Think Tank Calls For Scottish APD To Be Scrapped

Air travel spreads disease. Ebola. Zika. What will be next, I wonder?

So no, I think the world needs a global tax on air travel - a flat tax on jet fuel - with the revenues all spent on funding anti-disease measures, from front line care to research into vaccines and cures.

So I think the proposal to scrap air travel tax is short-sighted.

Rather than scrap it, it needs to go global and be used to finance the world's fight against infectious diseases that travel so easily these days.

It's absolutely wrong to think that international travel is an unqualified "good thing".

When your family gets a baby with a shrunken head because of someone bringing back Zika from the Olympics, you'll understand that then.

Be afraid. Be very afraid. Remember, this world thinks Queen Elizabeth is a suitable head of state. If that doesn't bring you out in a cold sweat what will? (Zika?)
