Is Africa ready for the implementation of the Continental Free Trade Area? - Blog KPMG Africa
Is Africa ready for the implementation of the Continental Free Trade Area? June 22, 2018 at 03:21AM https://ift.tt/2MeGU5J

Africa is a continent of immense contrasts. It has vast reserves of natural resources but suffers from severe economic inequality. Nevertheless, the Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA) has brought some cause for optimism as it presents an important opportunity for economic transformation across the continent. Yet, such development must be coupled with clear forms of regulation if we are to attain the primary goal of boosting intra-African trade and creating an economic bonanza for all.

CFTA, an initiative of the Heads of State of the African Union members, aims at creating a single continental market for goods and services, with free movement of people and investments. Indeed, a grouping of 54 countries with a combined population of over one billion people and gross domestic product estimated at over USD 3.4 trillion makes Africa a formidable force in international trade.

For the CFTA to succeed, it is vital that fundamental policies are aligned and implemented uniformly across member states. Such policies include implementation of a visa-free Africa, a strong collaboration of the tax authorities especially on disclosure of information, harmonisation of taxes such as import taxes, elimination of non-tariff barriers and implementation of uniform transfer pricing policies.

Transfer Pricing Awareness Survey - Blog KPMG Africa
Transfer Pricing Awareness Survey June 22, 2018 at 02:21AM https://ift.tt/2MauXy3

There have been significant developments in the international tax and transfer pricing space since the publication of the Transfer Pricing (TP) Regulations in Nigeria.

In 2017, we conducted our first Transfer Pricing survey to gauge taxpayers’ awareness of TP compliance requirements, TP risk assessment and audit preparedness. This year, we are pleased to present the findings from the second edition of our survey. For this edition of the survey, we had 56 respondents, representing the major industry sectors.

Based on the feedback provided by the respondents, the level of awareness of the TP compliance requirements appears to have improved over the past year. Also, in light of the outcomes of the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project and the increased experience of the Nigeria tax authorities with respect to TP, taxpayers are doing more to appropriately plan and manage their related party transactions. This is to avoid material additional tax liabilities in the event of a TP audit.

What time of day do English people drink? — Quartz
When and where do British people drink? June 22, 2018 at 02:24AM https://ift.tt/2KcPEbR

British people like a drink—particularly between 8pm and 9pm on Saturdays. About 17% of all UK adults report boozing at that hour, more than any other time of the week, according to University of Sheffield alcohol researcher Colin Angus.

The following chart shows the share of British adults who report drinking alcohol in each hour throughout the week. The analysis is based on data collected for the National Diet and Nutrition Survey, aggregated from 2008 to 2016, for which British people are asked to document all of their consumption for several days.

Where are Brits doing all this drinking? Mostly at home.

Of the 17% drinking between 8pm and 9pm on Saturdays, only about 5% are imbibing in bars. That’s reflective of a broader trend: In 1994, 58% of alcohol in the UK was purchased at bar and restaurants. In 2016, it was just 30%.

It’s an incredible shift, and one that’s endangering pubs. In 2000, there were about 60,800 pubs in the UK, according to the British Beer and Pub Association. By 2016, there were only 50,300.

“This pattern is not so well mirrored in other parts of the world,” Angus explained by email. “Mostly because they never drank that much in bars.” He says that the UK has among the highest rates of pub drinking in the world (though the Irish are higher), so they had a long way to fall.

The change appears to be driven by young people. Drinking among young Brits has been falling for the past 20 years. The share of 16- to 24-year-olds who say they don’t drink at all more than doubled between 2005 and 2015.

When they do drink, young people are far more likely to be drinking wine at home than beer at a pub. Store-bought wine sales doubled in the UK from 1994 to 2016. The rise of wine was largely driven by women, who have been winnowing the gender drinking gap for decades, and generally prefer a chardonnay to a lager.
