3 reasons I’m choosing a Stocks and Shares ISA over a Cash ISA for 2020

first_img There are only a few days to go until this tax year’s ISA deadline on April 5. That usually means being bombarded with ISA ads. In previous years, we have rarely been able to miss the advertising on the tube, in newspapers and on billboards from various ISA providers. This year, with the country in lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic, you could be forgiven for not noticing.This does not mean that it is not important to think about your ISA and top it up to the maximum level you can afford before the deadline.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…But if you do not yet have one, it is also time to think about opening one. You can put up to £20,000 into an ISA every tax year and all the gains are tax-free. But first you need to pick which one is most suitable for you. For myself, the choice is between a Cash ISA and a Stocks and Shares ISA. So why am I leaning towards the Stocks and Shares option?Saving vs investingA Cash ISA is a great tool for saving for a known future purchase. It acts well as a separate account into which you can put funds to accumulate at the set rate. For example, the Post Office is offering a one-year fixed cash rate at 1.3%. Many offer less than that. I am looking to use an ISA for actual investments so 1.3% or less is no good to me.If I want to actively grow my funds tax-free and not just passively save, I think the Stocks and Shares ISA is a better call.Short term vs long termThe Stocks and Shares ISA is designed so that investments I make into it can be free from capital gains tax when I sell them. If the prices of my shares rise (once the coronavirus crisis is over), those gains could be large. And given that my gains are likely to be higher the longer I hold them (one caveat being that past performance is no guarantee of future returns), it incentivises me to hold for the long term. Saving £1,000 on capital gains tax is a lot more efficient than saving £100, after all. By contrast, the low Cash ISA rates are good for saving for a year or two at most for a large purchase. You see, £1,000 compounded at 1.3% over 10 years would still only reach £1,137.87. Freedom vs standardWithin a Stocks and Shares ISA, I have a good degree of freedom around what I put in there. Individual stocks are obviously fine, but I can add mutual funds and investment trusts too. This gives me a wide array of companies in which to invest. And I can tailor it myself to the risk level I am happy with. With a Cash ISA, there is not much for me to tailor. I can amend my access to my money, for example lock it up for a year. Apart from this, the headline interest rate is the only variable I would care about. And 1.3% (or less) just doesn’t excite me.

GAO Critical of USDA Disease Surveillance Strategy

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News GAO Critical of USDA Disease Surveillance Strategy GAO Critical of USDA Disease Surveillance Strategy Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – May 22, 2013 A new Government Accountability Office report looks at the federal government’s efforts to conduct surveillance activities for animal diseases in livestock and wildlife. More specifically – it examines USDA’s new approach to disease surveillance in livestock and poultry and the extent to which the approach is guided by a strategy with measurable goals and supports broader national bio-surveillance efforts. USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service started shifting from a disease-by-disease surveillance approach to one that monitors the overall health of livestock and poultry last year. The GAO report finds APHIS faces several challenges in carrying out this new approach – including obtaining new data from current and additional sources and determining how best to deploy declining resources given increasing fiscal constraints. The GAO also found that APHIS may not be ideally positioned to support national efforts to address the next threat to animal and human health if its vision isn’t integrated into an overall strategy with goals and measures that are aligned with broader national homeland security efforts to detect biological threats.After monitoring USDA’s new surveillance efforts – it was the determination of the GAO that USDA’s planning documents didn’t provide a clear road map or overall strategy for managing the new approach to animal disease surveillance. The GAO said the documents also don’t include specific information on how the effort would contribute to the national goal of bio-surveillance.The GAO is recommending that as APHIS develops goals and measures for this new approach – it integrate the agency’s vision into an overall strategy – guiding how it supports national homeland security efforts to enhance the detection of biological threats.According to Agri-Pulse – USDA Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs Edward Avalos said the department agrees with the recommendations and APHIS will include better performance metrics in its planning efforts. In fact – Agri-Pulse reports Avalos said APHIS plans to develop performance measures for its Comprehensive and Integrate Swine Surveillance within the year.center_img SHARE SHARE Source: NAFB news service Previous articleSeed Consultants 5/22/2013 Market Update with Gary WilhelmiNext articleFarm Bill Debate Continues in Senate Gary Truittlast_img read more

Two new AAPI candidates were elected to serve in the U.S. Senate and five in the U.S. House of Representatives.Last night, the American people elected a record a number of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders to serve in the U.S. Congress,” said Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27), Chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC). “The 115th Congress will include more women and minorities than ever before, which means that the people making decisions for Americans will better reflect the diversity of our nation. With these victories, CAPAC will have its highest AAPI membership in history, and I look forward to working with all of my colleagues to come together and move our nation forward.”Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth (IL-08) won her Senate race and made history as the first Thai American elected to the U.S. Senate.

Currently chaired by Congresswoman Judy Chu, CAPAC has been addressing the needs of the AAPI community in all areas of American life since it was founded in 1994.
