Stocks and Shares ISAs are operated like any traditional dealing account. The one key difference is that they come with added tax benefits.Specifically, any income or capital gains an investor generates on assets held within one of these wrappers does not attract tax. Investors do not even need to declare ISAs on their tax return.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…And with the annual ISA allowance set at £20k, I think there’s little if any reason for an investor to open a traditional dealing account. Why pay the extra tax when you don’t need to?Stocks and shares ISA benefitsWithout tax obligations, it is possible to build wealth at a faster rate. For example, a higher-rate taxpayer will have to pay a tax rate of 32.5% on dividends and 20% on capital gains. That means for every £100 of income, £32.50p will go to the taxman. Roughly speaking, this suggests a third of any income an investor receives on assets owned outside of a Stocks and Shares ISA will disappear. For example, the FTSE All-Share currently supports a dividend yield of around 4%. My figures suggest this falls to 2.7% after-tax. Over the long term, this could have a massive impact on returns. An investment of £1,000 growing at a rate of 4% per annum could become £4,940 after 40 years of saving, according to my numbers. However, the same investment of £1,000, growing at a rate of 2.7% per annum would be worth just £2,941 after four decades. That’s a difference of £1,999. Investing for the futureI think these pictures illustrate precisely why an investor would benefit from using a Stocks and Shares ISA. Choosing the right investments is the next part. I’m using a combination of high-quality blue-chip stocks, active investment funds and passive trackers to provide the best combination of income and growth. Consumer goods giant Unilever and insurer Admiral feature in my blue-chip portfolio. I believe these companies have substantial competitive advantages that should allow them to provide impressive returns for shareholders in the medium term. At the same time, I own the Mercantile Investment Trust. This gives me exposure to a broad selection of mid-cap stocks. These can produce higher capital returns than blue-chips in the long run. Finally, I own a FTSE All-Share index tracker. This fund is designed to replicate the underlying index. There are benefits and drawbacks to this approach, but overall, I think the passive tracker fund is a great way to replicate the performance of the index with low costs. Long-term growthI think the combination of investments above can provide an 8% to 10% annual return in the long run. Based on this projection, I reckon it will take me just 17 years to build million-pound Stocks and Shares ISA. That’s assuming I use up the £20k ISA allowance every year. center_img Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

first_imgThursday Mar 13, 2014 Zach Kibirige wonder try for England U20 against Wales Newcastle Falcons winger Zach Kibirige scored this incredible try for England Under 20 last weekend when they faced Wales in the Under 20 Six Nations, and won 67-7. Kibirige has since played down the moment though, saying that it was lucky. Playing on his home ground of Kingston Park, Kibirige collected the ball just outside of his 22, then beat a whole host of tackles before bumping off the last man and diving in for the memorable try.“It was a lucky little break to get it when I did. The space just seemed to open up, and that is what I like to do,” said the 19 year old this week.“Being on my home ground made it a little extra special, having so many family and friends in the crowd. The fans gave me brilliant support, and playing for your country in your home region has got to be right up there,” he added.While the tackling from Wales was questionable – at 38-0 down already – the determination of Kibirige should be admired, especially as he had to turn and accelerate, and keep pumping the legs through a number of tackles. He’s one to watch in the not too distance future no doubt.England U20 are in a similar situation to the senior team, where they sit second on the table and need to beat Italy away this weekend to stand a chance of taking the title.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Amateur , Great Tries Related Articles 32 WEEKS AGO Viral video of Scottish club brawl goes down… 69 WEEKS AGO RUGBYDUMP BLITZ: This Best of the Week round… 69 WEEKS AGO RD BLITZ – Disaster, just when it looked… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

While the negotiations are in the stretch-run, questions remain on just how dug in the president is on stricter SNAP work requirements for program recipients. During a press conference, Trump blamed Democrats for farm bill delays because of their opposition to stronger work requirements.The president says he wants “work requirements” in the bill, a demand that some interpreted as a subtle veto threat. Politico says many food and agricultural lobbyists are shrugging off President Trump’s latest comments.  They’re betting Trump wouldn’t veto a farm bill without the new work requirements if it landed on his desk. Bob Greenstein, founder and president of the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, says Trump’s threat to refuse to accept a bill if it doesn’t contain those work provisions doesn’t make sense. “If he refuses to accept such a bill, the farm bill would then die in the lame duck, and the next Congress, with a Democratic House, will start over,” Greenstein says. The resulting new farm bill would be even less to the president’s liking.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

first_img(HONOLULU, Hawaii) — Hurricane Lane is taking aim at Hawaii as a Category 4 storm with fierce winds of 155 mph.The storm had reached Category 5 level, but weakened early Wednesday. A hurricane warning has been issued for the Big Island, including Hilo, and hurricane watches are in place for the islands of Maui and Oahu, including the state’s capital city Honolulu.All public schools on the Big Island and Maui will be closed starting Wednesday until further notice, said Gov. David Ige.Tropical storm conditions on the Big Island will be possible Wednesday and hurricane conditions are possible Thursday.For the island of Oahu, including Honolulu, tropical storm winds are expected Thursday and hurricane-force winds are possible Thursday night into Friday morning.The Hawaiian Islands could see more than 20 inches of rain over the next several days from this hurricane.A high surf warning has also been issued for Hawaii with waves up to 25 feet.As Hurricane Lane takes a sharp turn north toward the islands Wednesday — and moves into cooler Pacific water — it is expected to weaken significantly by Friday, from Category 5 to a possible Category 1.It’s rare for hurricanes to hit Hawaii because an area of high pressure that sits to the northeast of the islands steers the hurricanes away. This high pressure is the strongest from May through October, which is also prime hurricane season.Hawaiian islands are also surrounded by cool water and tropical cyclones need ocean water temperatures to exceed 80 degrees to strengthen.On record, there are only two hurricanes that have made landfall in Hawaii and both were on Kauai: Category 1 Dot hit in 1959 and catastrophic Category 4 Iniki came ashore in 1992.In 1982, Category 1 Iwa made a major impact on Kauai, but because its eye did not hit the island, it wasn’t counted as officially making landfall there.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
