Share Politics: Cracking down on online VAT fraud
Mel Stride, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, talks to Share Radio's Simon Rose about the Government's latest initiative to crack down on online sellers trying to evade VAT, particularly those based overseas. VAT is the third-largest source of revenue for the government after income tax and National Insurance and, as the minister explains, the Government is determined that the playing field should be level with bricks-and-mortar retailers and that those owing tax are not able to escape paying.

This is Money: Should people cash in on their homes to enjoy life or help their kids?
As a generation retires with more money in their houses than the bank, this question will only become more pressing. We revealed how a new wave of retirement interest-only mortgages could be about to emerge. Homeowners could use one to have a more comfortable retirement, clear some debt, or hand the kids or grandkids an early inheritance – perhaps to buy a home for their own young family. Is that a good idea or a recipe for disaster – and how did we even end up here? In a conversation that tracks all the way back to the mortgage boom of the Thatcher years, Simon Lambert, Rachel Rickard Straus and Georgie Frost dive into the homes as a cash machine question on this week’s podcast.

Track Record:  Graham Harris
In this episode, Sue Dougan welcomes Graham Harris, whose entire career has been spent in the printing industry – since the age of 16, when his mother rang up a local firm and made an enquiry on his behalf. He then became a successful inventor when he created a mechanism to prevent creasing in the printing process. While he admits it's not the most exciting invention, he’s a problem-solver, and enjoys finding solutions to issues within the industry. He now runs two companies specialising in print industry technology. Graham reveals that a serious accident in his late teens gave him the push he needed to focus on his career; and he's still waiting for his idol – fellow inventor and founder of the Dyson company, James Dyson – to read his new book, Against the Grain. Plus, do all inventors adhere to the “eccentric” stereotype? Graham has a thing or two to say about that.
