英国政府再出减税新政 金融科技企业或从中获益

近日,英国财政大臣Osborne在威斯敏斯特宣布:“我将两倍减免小型企业纳税额,并且我想把这项政策长期推行下去。”此政一出,作为中小企业中坚力量的金融科技企业或许能够得到一笔额外的“收入”。

小型企业纳税减免(SBRR)将在2017年4月从减免50%增至减免100%。

纳税起征点将升高:较低企业税率的起征点将从6000英镑增至15000英镑;而标准企业税率起征点则将从18000英镑增至51000英镑。

此次改革意味着多达6000家小型企业将无需再交税,25万家小型企业将从2017年4月开始享受税额减免。

下议院中的保守党广泛支持这项政策。Osborne表示,“这是为小型企业定制的预算。”

小型企业联合会政策主管Mike Cherry对Osborne的政策进行了解读:“把一部分小型企业完全排除在纳税企业行列之外,这项政策真切地关注到了我们的诉求。此次企业纳税减免的联合措施得到了我们会员企业的一致认可,这是迄今为止规模最大的一次减税预算,也是推进基础改革的重要一步。”

买方服务商Alpa Dealing首席执行官Simon Broch则表示:“作为一家小企业的老板,我认为这项预算在很大程度上就是‘一手赠予,一手索取’。虽然企业纳税减免着实很受推崇,但同时我们雇用员工的成本却也增加了。”

“企业税收激励不可能会吸引跨过公司进驻英国,除非“英国退出欧盟”事件平息下来;这一事件目前的影响已经导致英国货币贬值,其他国家面向英国的投资也可能将因此被叫停。”

反对派领导人Jeremy Corbyn对Osborne的预算也做出了回应:“这从最根本、最核心的层面来看是不公平的。这不是为小型企业推出的预算,而是对冲基金经理的福利。”

In Westminster this afternoon, Osborne said: “I am more than doubling small business rate relief, and I’m more than doubling it permanently.” FinTech start-ups were given an extra boost.

The Small Business Rate Relief (SBRR) will be doubled from 50% to 100% from April 2017.

The threshold is also being raised from £6,000 to £15,000 for the lower business rate, and from £18,000 to £51,000 for the standard business rate.

The reforms mean 6,000 small businesses will pay no tax, and 250,000 small businesses will have their tax rates cut in April 2017.

The announcement was met with cheers from the Conservatives in the Commons, as Osborne said: “This is a budget for small businesses.”

Mike Cherry, policy director at the Federation of Small Businesses explained Osborne has ‘heeded our calls’, by excluding some small businesses from tax rates altogether.

He said: “The combined measures announced on business rates – the single biggest tax cut in today’s Budget - will be viewed by our members as a welcome and important step on the road to fundamental reform.”

Simon Broch, CEO of buy-side services provider, Alpa Dealing, told The TRADE: "As a small business owner this budget was very much a case of 'What one hand giveth, the other taketh away'. Whilst a reduction in corporation tax and rates is well appreciated, the cost of employing staff has increased."

"The corporation tax incentives are unlikely to draw an international business to locate in the UK until the ‘Brexit’ issue is resolved. Foreign investment into the UK will also be on hold for the same reason as the short to medium term effect of a Brexit could see a devaluing of the sterling."

Leader of the opposition, Jeremy Corbyn, responded to Osborne’s Budget explaining it had “unfairness at its core".

Corbyn concluded: “This is a chancellor who has produced a Budget for hedge fund managers more than for small businesses.”
