  1. Please advice.... I am income support, and my benefit is being audited that I am on the right amount, first they asked for my account and now they have asked for my sons bank account. My boys are 19 years old and their bank accounts are in their own names nothing to do with me. Is it legal for my income support claim to ask me to provide other adults bank accounts because we live in the same house, surly they should write to my boys individually and ask them for their accounts not me. They have asked for bank statements from the date they had over £3,000.00 in savings (why £3,000.00). I have searched the internet and I can't find anything about this, only children's account for under 16 year old's where you have joint name on the account as the parent (to check your not hiding money in their name) Is there a limit on the amount of money a child can have, is it £3,000.00? Is their a limit on the amount of money another adult in the household (not partner) can have in their account, is it £3,000.00? I would have thought it would be £5,500 the same as my own account. Where can you find the full income support rules/ handbook/ guide that the DWP use on the internet for myself to understand what is happening. Thank you for reading, I have a lot of questions, it all seams very strange and I don't understand why.
  2. Financial Conduct Authority chairman John Griffith-Jones is facing calls to resign after he failed to flag up huge losses at HBOS in his role as chairman of accountancy firm KPMG. KPMG audited HBOS before its collapse and gave the bank a clean bill of health. Last week, the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards published a damning report about HBOS’s management. It revealed the bank was shouldering £47bn of losses when it was audited by KPMG. According to the Daily Mail, Labour MP and Treasury select committee member John Mann has called for Griffith-Jones to quit. He says: “He should absolutely resign. These grossly failed businessmen should not be in any senior positions in any organisation. Griffith-Jones played along with this Alice in Wonderland economics and the taxpayers are now footing the bill.” Tory MP and TSC member Brooks Newmark has written to committee chairman Andrew Tyrie calling for Griffith-Jones to resign. The FCA, which will publish a report on the bank’s collapse, says Griffith-Jones will not be involved. A spokesman says: “John Griffith-Jones was subject to a rigorous appointment process by HM Treasury, and had an appointment hearing with the Treasury select committee.” KPMG may be investigated by the Financial Reporting Council over its audit of HBOS. The FRC says it will review the commission’s report and the FCA’s conclusions “to see whether there is a case for an investigation under our powers”.

  3. Hello Everyone. I wonder if anyone here could clarify something for me please. I have been working for the same Community Pharmacy (a medium sized multiple) for just over ten years now; and today I recieved a letter from Human Resources stating that during an Eligibility to Work Audit, it was noted that I now need to supply HR with a copy of my passport, birth certificate, National Insurance card and a photograph within a deadline of seven days. I phoned them for clarification; and they stated that I had to supply this information as it was the law? No explanation as to what law this applies to; and it seems that although I have worked for them for ten years and have never been asked to supply such details throughout this period; and although I am registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council and have to supply similar information to the GPhC yearly in order to practice, they insist I provide it to them also. I'm really not very happy with having to do this as I am really fed up with having to supply such information to anyone and everyone. Am I legally obliged to supply ? Any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you. Molly
  4. Standard Chartered would allow US regulators to audit its New York operations independently as part of a resolution of the money-laundering case against it, the bank told the Daily Mail yesterday. The New York Department of Financial Services (DFS) ordered Standard Chartered to open its doors to an auditor of the regulator’s choosing on Monday as it laid charges that the bank illegally laundered £160billion for Iran. The bank has admitted to wrongdoing in a tiny fraction of these cases. The news comes as US regulators – including the Department of Justice, the Federal Reserve and the Treasury – scramble to establish a joint negotiating position before they begin settlement talks with Standard Chartered.
