  • Despite tax revenue from residential property seeing its usual annual rise between July and September, total tax revenue in the first nine months of 2018 across England and Wales was 9.5% lower than a year ago, according to the latest data published this week by HMRC and the Welsh Government.
  • It is estimated that £6.3 billion has been netted by HMRC and the Welsh Government between January and September, a fall of £662 million compared to the same period in 2017.
  • The number of properties liable for the 3% Higher Rate of Additional Dwelling (HRAD) levy fell over 5% in this period. The amount collected from the HRAD 3% element was down £243 million, the equivalent of 14.3%, to £1.24 billion.
  • Since its introduction in the 2017 Autumn Budget, the government has also ‘lost’ £427 million, owing to the introduction of first-time buyer tax relief which has benefitted over 180,000 first-time buyers. That number will rise thanks to the backdating of the scheme for first-time buyers purchasing shared ownership properties, as announced this autumn. On average, first-time buyers account for just over one fifth of residential property purchases each quarter.

St Ann’s Hospice

St Ann’s Hospice is encouraging people in SK4 to take advantage of a special Christmas tree recycling service this year to raise money for people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. National charity JustHelping is organising Christmas tree collections in local areas to raise money for charities including St Ann’s Hospice. Trees will be collected by volunteers from January 11-13, 2019, and trees can be registered now along with a voluntary donation. The real Christmas trees are recyclable and are shredded into chippings to be used locally in parks and sports clubs. Last year community groups in the area collected nearly 1,600 trees and raised £15,650.96 for St Ann’s Hospice. Clare Hinton, JustHelping’s Chief Executive, said: “We’re excited to see if we can raise even more money for charities like St Ann’s this year. “JustHelping brings people from across the local community together to volunteer and raise funds for good causes like the hospice, and by recycling the trees we collect we are also helping the environment too.

The Heatons Christmas Festival 2018

This coming weekend see’s one of the highlights of the Heatons calendar. On Sunday 2nd December 2018 from 11am to 6pm, Shaw Road will be awash with festive entertainment. There will be music, delicious food / drink and lots of gorgeous market stalls full of ideal gifts. A little elf friend tells me Father Christmas will be arriving on a special sleigh at 12noon. Around this time of year he’s very busy, so apparently he’s staying until 5.30pm, so this giving plenty of time for him to meet all the girls and boys. There will also be a snowman trail leaving from at Thom’s Bar & Restaurant at 11am.

If you fancy volunteering for this excellent family fun event, please make contact with the Four Heatons Traders Association. Volunteers are essential for this event to take place.
