Restoration Hardware Quietly Opens New Store NearSt. Louis Park

Most of the time, when a company opens a new store, they’ll blast it all over the place, using as many mediums as they can. If they have a site like www.probathroomfitterssouthampton.com, it’s a safe bet that that site will have headlines. However, the US’s Restoration Hardware, has recentlyopened a new store in Minnesota, with so little fanfare, unusual for a national outlet chain.

The new 10,000 ft2 showroom, located in the Shops at West End, which opened early in the morning of June 6, 2018, with eight employees cutting the ceremonial ribbon during the opening ceremony. The only advertising regarding the new store, were e-mails set to their customers listed in the Twin Cities distribution list. There was one customer waiting at the storefront for the new store to open, who even offered to take pictures of the opening ceremony. 15 minutes after opening, more than a dozen people were already inside the store, hunting for bargains.

The newly opened RH Outlet sold its products with discounts, with the lowest sitting at 20%, with certain products being discounted by up to 60%. The products ranged from sofas, beds, nightstands, and bathroom vanities, among others. According to a store manager, the store will prioritize selling furniture, with very few art, hardware, lighting and accessories.

Most of the items sold in this new store were discontinued products from the main store, or were returned in scratch-and-dent conditions. For the opening weekend, the store will be placing an additional 25% discount on all available items. Many of its pieces are large in size, like dining-room tables and sofas.

All sales in the outlet are final in nature, and delivery can be available for a fee, via two independent movers, under contract with the store. The outlet is open 7 days a week, at 1676 West End Blvd., Suite 2385, in St. Louis Park, Minnesota.

The Restoration Hardware brand, usually shortened to RH, has over 30 outlets across the United States. The company only has one full-line store in Minnesota, located in Galleria in Edina. Currently, a new, mansion-like store is under development across Southdale Center.

British Gas Loses 100,000 Customers Since The Start Of 2018

British Gas Loses 100,000 Customers Since The Start Of 2018

British Gas’s parent company, Centrica, has recently revealed some distressing data on the boiler repairs company. According to the company, UK’s largest energy provider, says that their subsidiary has dropped 100,000 customer accounts since the start of 2018. Centrica was warned that the looming increases in prices will lead to people switching over to rival firms.

This large number, however, is already a slowdown, as during the time frame of July 2017 to October of the same year, 823,000 customers dropped their accounts, compared to the first four months, which saw a loss of 111,000 accounts.

However, Jefferies bank has said that more losses are expected by the end of May, as the current figures doesn’t reflect the recent above-inflation price rise by the business, which only took effect at the end of the month.

Britain has been experiencing colder than usual weather, which has driven up demand for energy, but has also driven up call-out costs for boiler repairs, resulting in mixed results for the company. British Gas had the busiest week during the cold snap in February and March, leading to service plan costs that will likely cause a decrease in profits for the first half of 2018 at the company’s services unit, in comparison to 2017.

Centrica itself has taken some hits recently, with its Morecambe Bay gasfield suffering outages. On top of that, its 20% stake in the UK’s nuclear power fleet is expected to take some damage, thanks to a crack in a reactor resulting in it getting taken down. That being said, Centrica says that it that it would hit its set targets for 2018.

Iain Conn, Centrica’s CEO, says that government’s price cap on standard variable tariffs (SVTs) would have a big impact on British Gas, but they aren’t too sure how big it would be, but the company says that they’ll be in place at the end of the year.

British Gas has 3.7 million customers on SVTs, a drop from the 4.3 million at 2017’s end, with more cuts expected, to about 3 million by the time the tariffs are capped, which would reduce British Gas’s exposure.

Conn admits that 2017 has been challenging for Centrica, but defended that the progress they’ve made on cost-cutting and improving the balance sheet shows that they’re still on track. He says that they understand that people, their investors in particular, are frustrated, but they’re working on it.

How Is Cryptocurrency Taxed?

Posted by on Jun 10, 2018 in Business | Comments Off on How Is Cryptocurrency Taxed?

How Is Cryptocurrency Taxed?

Unless you are a seasoned investor like Leonardo González Dellán then you might have a lot of questions when it comes to cryptocurrency and its tax treatment. Despite the increase in the number of digital currencies in the market and the millions of investors all over the world, tax rules are not yet clear when it comes to the virtual currency sector.

The Internal Revenue Service provides guidance in terms of cryptocurrency taxes but it was back in 2014. During that time, the price of Bitcoin is only $585 and its market value only totals to $14,020,100 but it has now reached $4,631,500,000 with its price at $7,500 per coin. These numbers only cover bitcoin and there have been other digital currencies since such as Ethereum and Ripple.

According to the 2014 guidance, cryptocurrencies are considered to be capital asset when it comes to taxation. Capital asset is referred to those that can be changed into cash. Basically, the guiding principle of capital gains is that everything with possibility of gaining or losing. Filing taxes are not simple though and there is a need for additional guidance to answer important queries. The guidance is also needed for unconventional situations including splits and forks.

The guidance is now important more than ever because the IRS is requiring users to comply after accusations were made regarding taxpayers using virtual currencies in order to avoid reporting their taxes. To relay their serious intention with the matter, the IRS mandated Coinbase which handles transactions among cryptocurrencies to provide them with their customer data.

The matter was submitted to the court which led to Coinbase submitting some specific data concerning a number of customers. The IRS said that of all taxpayers only between 800 to 900 submitted reports that they gained from trading bitcoin when in fact over 14,000 users are transacting through Coinbase. The numbers led the IRS to believe that many of the users are not submitting the proper bitcoin gains.

Tax professionals and investors such as Leonardo González Dellán agree that additional guidance should be released to help the taxpayers report correctly.

Canadian Dollar Hits Low Levels As Oil Drops

Canadian Dollar Hits Low Levels As Oil Drops

Bad news has been the word for currency exchange Ottawa and across Canada as the Canadian dollar or the loonie has been weakened to the lowest it’s been in over two months, especially compared to its US cousin on the 28th of May, following a drop in oil prices and investors forecasted that the Bank of Canada will fall behind the Federal Reserve with their interest rate hikes.

US’s oil prices dropped by 2.1% percent to $66.47/barrel as Saudi Arabia and Russia revealed that they might be looking into upping their supplies while the US oil production continues to go up. The resulting decline has left oil, one of Canada’s key exports, nearly 9% below last week’s record setting $72.83/barrel, a 3 and a half year high.

A slowdown in Canada’s real estate market, as well as the increasing gap between it and US’s interest rates have put serious pressure on the loonie, according to the Portfolio Manager at Picton Mahoney Asset Management, Michael White. He says that, from the current perspective, it seems wiser to have a lower-valued loonie.

People in the currency exchange Ottawa industry are waiting for the Bank of Canada to announce their interest rate decision at the 30th of May, Wednesday. A poll from Reuters forecasted that they’ll probably keep the interest rates steady as the current environment, high on indebted consumers and uncertainty, demand caution.

Currently, Canada’s central bank’s benchmark policy rate is at 1.25%, while the Federal Reserves’ target range is from 1.50% to 1.75%, with currency experts already expected the Fed to take their rate up in June.

Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland will be headed to Washington before June to unblock talks regarding the North American Free Trade Agreement, according to a spokesperson. It’s important for the country to make sure NAFTA does not collapse as 75% of Canada’s exports go to the United States.

At 3:41PM (EDT), the Canadian dollar recorded at a trading value of $1.2996 to the greenback or 76.95 US cents, 0.1% lower, which is the weakest value its hit since 21st March, when its trade value sat at $1.3022.
