Don’t wait for a tax reform to start your tax-planning strategy

Don’t wait for a tax reform to start your tax-planning strategy

Finance
There has been a great deal of discussion concerning tax reform these days, and many people are putting tax planning on hold until they see what Congress is actually going to do. Since that could take a lot of time and we don't know if any changes will actually occur, it makes more sense to plan now and adjust later if the world changes. Focus on what you know and what you can control, and don't worry about any changes until they actually occur.Don't wait until 1099s start arriving, to begin gathering your data for filing. The top priority and most important tax-planning advice is to file as early as possible to avoid tax-return identity theft. Have all backup data possible in early January so that when 1099s do arrive, you are ready to file.One of the most important things you can do righ...

Goldman is going to explain its trading strategy after investor pressure

Finance
Goldman Sachs Group will detail plans to turn around performance at its core bond-trading unit next month after unusual pressure from large investors frustrated by vague explanations of its troubles, people familiar with the matter told Reuters.The move is a break from tradition at Wall Street's pre-eminent bank, which usually gives its investors little information about how it makes money.That was the case last month, when Goldman reported a stunning 40-percent decline in bond-trading revenue, much worse than rivals like Morgan Stanley and JPMorgan Chase & Co.Goldman Chief Financial Officer Marty Chavez said Goldman had trouble "navigating" the markets during a conference call to discuss second-quarter results on July 18, but did not offer specifics.That, and his vagueness over the ca...
Diesel and petrol car ban: Clean air strategy 'not enough'

Diesel and petrol car ban: Clean air strategy 'not enough'

Science
The government's £3bn clean air strategy does not go "far enough or fast enough", campaigners have said.
