Bill receipt for dinner at #BunduKhan fortress stadium, I insisted for a receipt with #STN(sales tax number) but in vain and obviously i ended up paying full amount ..
I request authorities to kindly take action against all such businesses. they might be keeping this 16% (1/2)
To themselves .. in short this is a violation of basic taxation rules and this place should be held accountable ..

#Brexit ALREADY costs UK £1bn pw as we Hit Holidays! @GoldmanSachs put that lower at £600m. but I'm looking at 2+% less GDP (than would have been); more Govt Debt (+interest); the growing impact of #Brexodus on jobs/taxtake; £devaln.&inflation creep, reducing Property values.1/20
@GoldmanSachs Am puzzled & mortified? that UK's so-called Major Political Parties @Conservatives @UKLabour seem umbilically disconnected? from the financial IMPACT of their recent (let's say) 'accidental collusions' and Brexit-Birth-Giving! Why the co-incidental & costly numeracy lapse? 2/20
@GoldmanSachs @Conservatives @UKLabour Assuming that (eg) @bankofengland @hmtreasury @ICAEW @The_IoD @cbicarolyn @FrancesOGrady are aware of UK's #Brexit financial haemorrhage? eg Govt Debt, Jobs/Tax, Businesses (all sizes), Individuals - there may be varying estimates? but agreement that a HUGE hit is ongoing! 3/20

@wdunlap “Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, #Trump dismissed his past appearances with #Epstein …Epstein’s personal little black book, leaked by an employee in 2009, contained 14 phone numbers for Trump, his wife, Melania, and several people who worked for him.”

@wdunlap “But even beyond #Trump’s own words further up, there’s a good deal of evidence the two were friendly social acquaintances at least through the early 2000s”

“Trump called #Epstein twice in November 2004, according to message pads seized”

@wdunlap “Attorneys for #Epstein say he obtained a foreign #passport under an alias in 1980s to defend himself from potential kidnappers while traveling in the Middle East.

worried about perils he faced traveling there as ‘an affluent member of the Jewish faith’”

FWIW, here are my subjective rankings of the #ToryLeadershipContest #tax cut proposals. (This is a personal view only - I don’t have a dog, or even a vote, in this fight.) In reverse order… (1/6)
No. 5 (i.e. last). Reform #VAT and replace with a sales tax (#Gove). Bad economics. VAT is a relatively efficient tax and the current system already allows the UK gov’t to set lower rates for some goods and services to help the poor. #Brexit will increase this flexibility. (2/6)
No. 4. Raise the threshold for paying the top rate of income tax (#Johnson). Neither one thing nor the other? Won’t actually make much difference to those earning just above the old threshold, or any difference to those who earn a lot less. (3/6)

The Trump Regime approved the transfer of #nuclear technology to #SaudiArabia seven times!

Trump is risking #War with #Iran because he states, “we just don’t want them to have nuclear weapons - not too much to ask.” 

How can Americans believe this lie?

2015 Hillary Clinton's email.

What Israel military leaders really worry about -- but cannot talk about is loosing their nuclear monopoly!

The Yinon Plan, a strategy intended to ensure Israel’s regional superiority in the Middle East that involves breaking apart the Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia & Egypt into smaller & weaker sectarian states.

About 73% of Nigerian adults and nearly 70% of businesses believe that it is not wrong or understandable to evade tax. Watch my @channelsTv interview on #BetterTax advocacy & findings of @officialNESG study on why many Nigerians don't want to pay #tax pwc.smh.re/05lW
Despite the ‘record’ tax collections by FIRS, States IRS, and the Nigeria Customs Service, Nigeria’s Tax to GDP ratio was 6.1% at the end of 2018 - one of the lowest in the world - but that doesn’t tell the full story.
Major reason for low tax compliance is citizens tax morale. A recent ‘Tax Perception Survey’ by NESG shows that tax morale (the willingness to pay tax and the belief that tax evasion is wrong) is very low among Nigerians.

#PURIMLIMERICKS!

Chapter 1:
In #Persia, in days long ago
The king tossed 'em back like a pro.
But he wasn't amused
when Queen #Vashti refused,
so he opted to change status quo.
#PURIMLIMERICKS!

Chapter 2:
#Achashveirosh's anger was shed
and he thought, "It's about time I be wed."
Then just as was planned,
he took #Esther's hand --
though her or'gins she kept in her head.
#PURIMLIMERICKS!

Chapter 3 (part 1):
The royal advisers just stared
when #Mordechai wasn't prepared
to bow to a man
whose Amalekite clan
had too often in mem'ry been spared.

0/ The #cryptocurrency/#blockchain ecosystem is finishing the week in a flurry!

Below, I've condensed 19 of Friday's #crypto developments into one single #Twitter thread. All for your convenience. Enjoy!
1/ 🗽 New York State's D.F.S. granted both @LibertyX (fiat-to-#bitcoin service) and @RobinhoodApp (#crypto exchange) a #BitLicense to operate their respective businesses in the state of #NewYork. The latter also received a money transmitter license. dfs.ny.gov/about/press/pr…
2/ 📊 Social, peer-to-peer user #data network @3Boxdb has partnered with @AlethioEthstats to deliver the first #Ethereum block explorer with built-in social profiling functionality.

Can't wait to give this a try. Such a neat, value-adding integration for the budding #web3 space!

Remember when Angela Merkel asked scientists to come up with a way to tax data? Here is what we (@DSchanzLMU, J. Englisch and me) came up with. #tax #taxtwitter
To be clear, all this is very tentative - a first pass at a complex, incredibly messy problem. There'll be a number of revisions ahead. So please, #taxtwitter, do your magic and poke some holes in it.
Sorry, here is the link.

0/ Thread. Having spent some time with @Nicolas_Colin on his new book HEDGE about #tech, #entrepreneurship, social #policy and the future of the Safety Net, I'm sharing some things that stuck with me, and why HEDGE is one for the ☀️📚📝 #readinglist amazon.com/Hedge-Greater-…
1/ @Nicolas_Colin is thought-provoking not least because of his vantage point - graduated from the French ENA, worked at the top of the French civil service, set up his own company, and invests in startups all over 🇪🇺 with @_TheFamily
2/ Im not one for party politics, and HEDGE isn't about that. It's a book that speaks to the zeitgeist of the #techlash and ways for #startup #founders and #politicians to think about smart, sensible policies to build an inclusive Safety Net 2.0 📖

One of #Canada #Ottawa's largest mosques loses charity status for promoting ‘hate and intolerance’ via @StewartBellNP
globalnews.ca/news/4373959/o…
“Many of the views expressed by the organization’s speakers are misogynistic, homophobic, racist and/or promote violence,” the @CanRevAgency Charities Branch wrote in a letter sent to the mosque president.
It means the mosque no longer benefits from the #tax advantages enjoyed by government-registered charities. Foremost, it cannot issue receipts allowing donors to claim their contributions as income tax deductions.
