It seems Londoners can breathe a sigh of relief for now as this week’s planned London Tube strikes have been suspended. The bad news for commuters in the capital is the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union has set two new strike dates for next month.

Are you a loyal customer? Once you find a product or service you’re happy with, do you stick with it, keeping with what you know and like?

Well what would you do if you’d been using a service for a while, you were happy with it and had no complaints and then suddenly, overnight, it put its prices up?

What if it not only put its prices up, it increased them by almost half?

You’d probably not be happy and might even consider looking around for a comparable yet  more cost-effective service.

And that’s exactly how customers of certain conference call providers must be feeling right now after a round of price hikes yesterday (July 1, 2015).

Liechtenstein is a haven for UK-based tax dodgers – although HMRC is working hard to put a stop to the practice via a tax disclosure ‘opportunity’ that enables anyone who confesses to hiding money in the tax haven will only have to pay 10% of the tax owed.

In addition to the 10% penalty though, people will still have to pay tax, plus interest, going back as far as the last 10 years, so the final tax bill could still be hefty even though the 10% penalty limit sounds generous.

Since the scheme began more than 2,400 people have come forward to pay an extra £363 million in tax and penalties.

And HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) expects this figure to rise to £3bn by 2016, significantly more than the £1bn initially expected.

UK authorities estimate around 5,000 UK taxpayers have had money hidden in Liechtenstein – going back generations, in some cases – and co-operation between the UK and Liechtenstein authorities has now been strengthened by the signing, for the first time, of a formal double-taxation agreement between the two counties.

If you’ve business interests in Liechtenstein, you’ll want a low-cost and reliable teleconference, or conference call, provider – here’s how to quickly and easily set up a call between UK and Liechtenstein, using nothing more than a mobile or landline.
