I had written a two paragraph story for the Independent newspaper which provoked the retailing tycoon to scream down the phone at me the following day.“I cut out your article out and put it under my cat’s arse, which is where it firmly belongs,” Sir Philip, then just plain old Philip, bellowed at me, peppering his further comments with plenty of expletives. I watched and reported with interest as Amber Day failed and Sir Philip retreated from the public company arena and then watched again with admiration as the retailing tycoon built up an incredible empire, including Bhs and Top Shop.As the years went by Sir Philip joined the top ranks of British business. He tried and failed to take over Marks & Spencer but in doing so he instructed the country’s best advisers, including the top financial relations firm Finsbury and bankers Merrill Lynch. Then, under the Labour administration, this swashbuckling entrepreneur with a no-nonsense approach to management, was knighted.That he should have been appointed by the government to look at making cuts in public expenditure does not come as a total surprise. Sir Philip’s talents in running his retail empire will no doubt bring some benefits to some areas of government procurement and there will be jobs that he will no doubt be able to dispense with.What does surprise is Sir Philip’s naive belief that in accepting the job he would not be subjected to questions about his family’s tax arrangements. One might have every sympathy for Sir Philip and others like him, such as Terra Firma’s Guy Hands, who either reside overseas or have family overseas for tax reasons. Such businessmen and countless hedge fund managers and successful City figures are fed up with what they consider to be a punitive tax system.But it can not have escaped Sir Philip, or the government’s advisers, that in Vince Cable, the coalition has a business secretary who believes in making those who can afford it pay more. As Cable told us over the weekend: “I remain of the general view that British businesspeople should pay their taxes in Britain.”Sir Philip would no doubt reply that he does pay UK tax, but his wife, who has received a large dividend in the past, lives in Monaco and doesn’t.In asking Sir Philip about his tax affairs in the context of Cable’s stated position, CityA.M. upset the entrepreneur who has broken off relations. We are not the first newspaper to reach this state of affairs with him and clearly won’t be the last.But it is a shame the government’s latest appointee feels this way. In private Sir Philip has interesting thoughts on the kind of tax conditions that might allow his family and others to return to the UK, and he could no doubt enrich the debate.Increasing tax revenue would bring the budget deficit down just as much as cutting expenditure, and if that means reducing the rates of capital gains tax or income tax bands then that discussion needs to take place. Maybe Sir Philip will be calm enough to discuss such issues when he meets Cable on the business secretary’s return from holiday. [email protected] Allister Heath is away.

No InstallTaonga: The Island FarmUndo Tags: NULL MOLLER-MAERSK, the shipping and oil conglomerate, raised its outlook for the year yesterday after swinging back into half-year profit, on the back of increased volumes and a sharp rise in the price of crude oil. The Danish group said it now stands to make in excess of $4bn (£2.6bn) after tax in 2010, following a pre-tax profit of $4.8bn in the six months to July.An eight per cent surge in Asian exports to Europe, as well as a pick-up in transatlantic routes, further boosted profits for the bellwether transportation group, which posted a pre-tax loss of $1.31bn last year. And air freight revenues rose 46 per cent from what the firm said were low levels, in a sign international trade is picking up pace. However, chief executive Nils Smedegaard Andersen sounded a note of caution over the strength of the recovery. “The market has normalised in terms of both demand and capacity, but the question remains if we’ll see consumption pick up in Europe and the US to drive the market. That hasn’t changed for the past three quarters,” he said yesterday. Maersk said its drilling business still faces “considerable uncertainty”, but posted a pre-tax profit of $3bn on oil operations thanks to a 48 per cent rise in the price of Brent crude. The company also hopes to make $796m from its sale of its UK branches of Netto to Asda, expected to close later this year. Sharelast_img read more

Fertiliser giant Potash has received several rival bids

first_img THE world’s biggest fertiliser producer yesterday added a new twist to its hostile takeover saga by confirming it has been approached by several rival bidders.Potash is desperately trying to see off a $39bn (£25bn) hostile takeover bid by BHP Billiton.The Canadian firm has said it would prefer to remain independent but has told employees it has been approached by other firms.BHP has had an offer of $130 a share rejected by the Potash board.Several Chinese companies are understood to be interested in Potash but critics have demanded the government steps in to ensure the firm remains Canadian.Prime Minister Stephen Harper said: “I’m aware of some of the concerns that have been raised about some of the downside risks of this potential transaction. I understand why those concerns exist, and I assure you that should there be any such transaction, those concerns will be thoroughly analysed.”BHP is still the favourite to win control of the firm.

Republicans set to win in US elections

first_imgMonday 1 November 2010 9:22 pm Share KCS-content whatsapp DEMOCRATS are widely forecast to lose control of the House of Representatives today as Americans go to the polls in the US midterm elections, but President Barack Obama’s party could hang on in the Senate. Polls put the Republican lead at between six and 15 per cent, with Democrats especially vulnerable in the south.The US polling aggregator FiveThirtyEight says 40 seats in the House lean toward a Democratic victory and only 29 towards the Republicans, but 42 remain a “toss-up” and the Republican party only needs to gain 44 seats to wrest control from its opponents.The presence of 16 Republican candidates for the Senate and House who are affiliated with the low-tax Tea Party movement has added to the unpredictability of the race, with suggestions that, if elected, they could act as a bloc to oppose tax rises and spending increases.But it is not clear that a Republican House would result in measures to curb America’s ballooning budget deficit, which is forecast to reach 11 per cent of GDP this year. Despite Republicans regarding themselves as a party of deficit hawks, the party has a patchy record on public finances.Americans could also face tax rises if Democrats lose control of the House. The tax cuts brought in by former President George W Bush will expire by 2011 without an affirmative vote, making a cross-party deal between legislatures necessary.

Household net wealth rose 7.3 per cent to £117,000 per person in 2009 – the same as in 2005 – but still below a peak of £128,000 in 2007. This is as a result of the drop in house prices during the recession, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said yesterday. Most families’ biggest asset is their home, followed by life assurance, pension funds and savings accounts, the ONS added.The official data highlighted the scale of the recession however, showing that GAP per head – a measure of the economic wealth of a country plunged by 5.5 per cent in 2008-09, the biggest margin in 60 years.Despite the economic strain, Britons’ disposable incomes continued to climb, increasing by 1.2 per cent between 2008 and 2009 as consumers benefited from lower mortgage rates and rises in benefit payments.

McDonald’s faces suit in US over toys

first_img A US consumer group yesterday sued McDonald’s to stop the world’s largest hamburger chain from using Happy Meal toys to lure children into its restaurants.The Center for Science in the Public Interest is representing a Sacramento mother of two in the lawsuit, which alleges unfair marketing and other violations of California’s consumer protection law. It does not seek monetary damages.“The lawsuit is about the change, not the money,” CSPI litigation director Stephen Gardner said.“We are proud of our Happy Meals and intend to vigorously defend our brand, our reputation and our food,” said McDonald’s spokeswoman Bridget Coffing. “We listen to our customers, and parents consistently tell us they approve of our Happy Meals.”Walter Olson, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and tort reform advocate, said he thinks that McDonald’s will ultimately prevail but that it will likely have to go through multiple rounds of legal wrangling, which would suit CSPI.“In the meantime, they’ve got their step towards a national debate, which is what they want,” Olson said.McDonald’s debuted the Happy Meal in the United States in 1979. Modern offerings have included themed items from popular films like “Shrek” or sought-after toys like Ty Beanie Babies.The Happy Meal has been a huge hit for McDonald’s –- making the company one of the world’s largest toy distributors – and spawning me-too offerings at most other fast-food chains.But lately it also has come under fire from public health officials, parents and lawmakers who are frustrated by rising childhood obesity.

Sixty-one per cent say this will weaken the economy.Price pressure will increase further in the new year when VAT increases to 20 per cent on 4 January.If inflation remains above the target level of two per cent, Bank governor Mervyn King will be obliged to write more letters to chancellor George Osborne explaining the failure to keep inflation in check.“The amount of spare capacity in the economy is uncertain,” said George Buckley of Deutsche Bank, “which makes forecasting inflation exceptionally tricky.” Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more
