Have any of you bought Bitcoins or spoken to anybody that has?

The underlying principle of removing the role of the banking industry from transactions (or at least limiting its influence) seems noble but it stinks of a giant scam IMO.

Write an ebook* about how to make money from the crypto bubble.
*plagiarise generic investment advice books and tropes like "buy low, sell high" until you've hit a hundred pages or so.

now, as for how to get people to buy your book instead of one of the thousands of others that are doubtless trying this stunt? dunno. maybe instead of a book do a website with ads on it.

3840 Pensions
The OFT have come out and said that many old (i.e. set up before 2001) pension schemes have high charges and offer savers poor value for money. They've also suggested a cap for auto-enrolment schemes, but it's going to be an almost meaningless gesture as you'd be very hard pressed to find a provider offering auto-enrolment terms with annual management charges greater than 1% anyway.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-24153012

The pension scheme I'm in at work (contribution: 5% employer, 5% employee gross) has management charges of 0.6%, which I'm alright with as it's less than I'd get if I was investing in collectives through an ISA.

However, I've put the charges and contribution details into Invidion's pension calculator for an idea of what I'd get when I'm 65, 40 years from now, and if my salary increases in line with National Average Earnings and I took the 25% tax-free lump sum I'd be looking at a pension in today's terms of 27.5% of my current salary. If I wanted a pension that would be about two-thirds of what I'm earning now then I'll need to contribute, assuming the employer contribution stays at 5%, 15% gross (12% net) of my salary every year for the next four decades. This does depend on what annuity rates will be like then and I'd also be getting the State Pension, as long as they haven't upped the age you receive it to 80 by then.

If it wasn't for the tax relief and my employer matching my contributions then I doubt I'd bother and I'd look into other ways to support myself while I'm in retirement. What about you lads? What are your thoughts on pensions? In my opinion to have any form of decent retirement income you're at the mercy of your employer offering a good pension scheme.

Going into administration is effectively a compulsory takeover of the management. The appointed administrators will have the task of representing the creditors of Toys R Us to achieve a maximum return on their liabilities. That might mean restructuring the company, it might mean selling it as a going concern or it might mean closing up shop and stripping the assets.

If the PPF think that the current management of Toys R Us are unable to turn the business around, then it's probably in everyone's best interests to force them into administration. The CVA might protect some jobs in the short term, but it might also just drag out the inevitable. If Toys R Us keep trading and incur further losses, then it's harder for the PPF to recover funds to close the pension deficit.

Defaults on corporate debt can cause secondary job losses. A large proportion of the debts of Toys R Us are credit lines from suppliers - everything from toy manufacturers and distributors to the people who tarmac their car parks. Poorly managed insolvency can have a domino effect on other companies. If I sell to Toys R Us and they aren't paying my invoices, I might be unable to pay my suppliers and so on. Trading while insolvent is a criminal offence for good reason.

They're one of those companies you're surprised have lasted as long as they have.

The stores are depressing and look no different inside than they did twenty years ago, which were already quite dated at the time. I was in one a few years back and was amazed they were still trying to sell VHS tapes, which were priced at around a tenner each.

>The British arm of Toys R Us faces being plunged into administration within the next 48 hours, risking the loss of up to 3,200 jobs, after the UK’s pension lifeboat fund indicated that it would block a restructuring proposal for the ailing business.

>The retailer has offered to pay about £1.6m, related to contributions due to the PPF by March, but has said it does not have the resources to pay the remaining £7.3m that has been demanded, according to people briefed on the talks.

>The PPF has suggested a solution whereby the US parent waives an annual royalty fee to use the Toys R Us name, worth about £9m a year. But the US parent has argued that it is unable to do so under the terms of its court-led bankruptcy process. Toys R Us filed for bankruptcy protection in the US and Canada in September after struggling to compete with online competitors. It has been forced to put in place a plan to restructure almost $5bn in long-term debts.

That's that, then. Toys R Us will collapse on Thursday. £584.5m in loans to the parent company written off, most likely extracted by private equity firms.

7182 Personal development/study options going forward
Hullo britfa.gs been a while. I would be grateful for your bright ideas on how to get ahead in life and career. This is a bit /job/ and /uni/ too but fundamentally it all comes down to investing in myself so thought this board is the most relevant.

I've just finished my 3 year 'graduate programme' with my current employer and I think I have it in me to be good at all this business malarky - I have done stints in the marketing/communications and business development bits of the business and some other bits. However I studied an arts degree and training/development at my current firm is a joke. I want to go back to some kind of school and spend a while getting a firmer grip on how to be a productive manager and general 'doer' at work. I am envious of a housemate who did a full on financial management bachelors, who's now working his way up in a technology firm doing his CIMA.

Going back to uni and doing a Bachelors would seem way too OTT, so I looked at MBA programmes, particularly in the Netherlands (cheap fees and tuition is in English). However, those require you to have a relevant Bachelors, and good practice in statistics/analysis, which I don't. I would be happy to shell out for a short course, even something online, which could help.

I have about £11,000 in savings and legacies from deceased relatives that I can invest in my personal development. If I were to do a full time qualification I'd work part time to help pay bills. With something less full on I'd stick it out with my current employer.

Starting to feel a bit trapped here. Could any of you offer some tips on what kind of services I could turn to for advice, or what you would do in my situation?

Cheers lads.

You don't need another degree. After a few years in the workplace professional experience/qualifications count for far more than a degree.

You don't need to do a finance degree in order to work in a finance department and study to be a chartered accountant via CIMA.

7024 Should people with less than perfect language skills be trusted?
I can't quite come up with a satisfying answer to this. On the one hand, you'd expect someone you're potentially employing to carry out skilled work to at least be able to throw together a grammatically correct and properly spelled sentence in an email. On the other hand, a lot of skilled tradesmen and craftsmen, especially in niche fields, seem to be terrible at email but personable in real life, and their trade skills can make up for their poor communication skills. On yet another hand, can you really trust someone to carry out a job requiring attention to detail if they don't have the attention to detail to ensure their grammar and spelling are correct in their emails and letters to you?

I think we've simply answered the question by now frankly. Depends on the job.

They don't have to be William Shakespeare, but I think the capability of at least a certain level of attention to detail and clarity is absolutely neccesarry in certain jobs.

I wouldn't expect grammatical competence from a bricklayer, unless he somehow misplaces his decimal place and accidently orders half a brick instead of 500.

Neither of these have much bearing specifically on how far I'd trust them or rate their competency; that's boiling it down far too much.

That's really not the case. Not that it matters, since it doesn't really impact on the cost. Spare parts and repairs don't magically cost more at MOT time. The tyres and brake pads won't be cheaper to fix earlier or more expensive to fix later. In the past, I've had to get £200 worth of welding done to get a 10yo through the MOT. No "anticipation" possible there.

There has been a light whistling noise on boost sometimes. I've been driving very gently for teh last month, trying to get 600 miles out of each tank, so I may have killed it by not ragging it - would be annoying if so.
Coolant is pristine-clean, and oil is normal-mucky, no sign of the two mixing. Head gasket would seem unlikely.

Hello .gs,

I'm not sure if this is /emo/, /£$€¥/ or /job/ but I'm throwing my lot in here.

I've just moved into a situation for the first time in my life where I'll be able to make a start at making savings. I've just finished up with the university student life, and I've been lucky enough to land a job that pays a a pretty high salary (18.5k take-home, not including overtime). It's a job I can do well, and I can see myself putting at least 5 years into it.

The trouble is, I have no idea where to start when it comes to savings beyond immediately getting out of the student overdraft. I have no credit card debt or any other kind of debt beyond the overdraft, into which I am about 1.5k deep.

I don't know anything about investing and I don't expect to learn anything in-depth about it from an imageboard - instead I'm looking for anecdotal advice, stuff that's worked personally for people.

tl;dr

I have about ~£150-200 a week that I can save/invest after I clear my overdraft. What should I do with it?

7013 Lifetime ISA
These a good idea, boys?

The basics:
>18-39 to open one
>pay in anything upto £4k per tax year
>25% hmrc top up on payments in that year each april
>can pay in every year up to 50 years old
>can only withdraw the money with no penalty for a first time property buy or upon turning 60 years old
>25% penalty for withdrawing at any other time for any other purpose, effectively a 6.25% penalty on what you initially paid in
>counts towards your overall £20k a year isa allowance

I've been toying with the idea of starting to save seriously for buying a house but I've been unconvinced that it's the best investment for me. However, this makes it seem like it may be the best option now. I've got £4k to stick in one right now then I should be able to put £1-2k a year for the next few years too which should get me a decent deposit. I'm highly unlikely to need to take the money out for any reason so the penalties don't concern me, and even if I do the penalty is manageable.

Is there any reason to be concerned about the lack of providers? I've been looking at the Skipton product, I can't conceive of any reason to not go for it. I think they offer a 0.5% interest rate if I remember rightly, which is mostly irrelevant because the only reason anyone is doing it is for the government bonus. From what I understand, if I invest with Skipton, then more providers offer the Lifetime ISA in future, then I can freely transfer my balance with no penalty to another Lifetime ISA.

I'm looking to move house soon. I've got a mortgage on a little two up two down, looking to move to a three bedroom somewhere nearby.

My question is; how should I go about selling it? The options seem to be to sell it yourself (which I'm not going to be doing), to go with an online only estate agent, or to go with a high street estate agent.

On the face of it, it seems like the best option, money-wise, to go online-only (say, with purplebricks.com or something). You can arrange a fixed fee to be payed after the house is sold, generally it does work out cheaper. You do pay something like a grand and a half more with a high street estate agent (variable).

I can't escape the nagging suspicion, though, that you get more for your money with high street estate agents. I'd like to know that there's somewhere I could go to kick up a fuss if something goes wrong; I'd like someone to give people tours of the house when we're not in; I'd like someone who I can ring up and ask daft questions after because I don't know anything about selling a house and they know everything.

Has anyone else sold a house before? Did you do it with an online only or a high street estate agent? Have you done it the other way as well, before? Which is better? Do you wish you'd done it differently?

It seems like a small decision, but I can't really seem to pick one over the other. I need more input from real people to make a decision. Help is much appreciated.

Most people look on Right Move so it doesn't really matter who you go with.

So right move aggregates listings from all major estate agents? Is the fit traffic from high street estate agents not worthy of consideration? How do you know most people search on right move?

No, a lot of estate agents list their properties on Rightmove.

I'm buying my first house and they have accepted an offer on the house. I was checking on the advert on right move to get some measurements and I noticed that they have updated the advert to:

PUBLIC NOTICE! William H Brown are now in receipt of an offer for the sum of £140,000 for ****************. Anyone wishing to place an offer on this property should contact ****************** before exchange of contracts.

Is this usual/legal for them to publicise the bid they've received in order to basically create an auction type situation? I've sent them a snotty e-mail asking them to not publicise the amount we have bid because that just seems pretty unfair.

Anyone have similar stories?

Not him but I always assumed setting one's wife, sister or daughter up in a no-customers tanning salon was the way to clear those cocaine thousands.

My anecdotal evidence is that the reason Asian graduates are less likely to be employed is because they're freeloaders. If Daddy is a rich solicitor or doctor who regularly gives them money to fund their lifestyle then there's little motivation to stand on their own two feet.

Alright bigot lad, then how do you explain how almost ALL uni educated minorities are more likely to be unemployed compared to their white counterparts? Do they all have rich doctor-teacher dads too?

He turned out to be a lovely bloke. Moving next week.
If he was a godless bastard like me, I'd have left him a nice bottle of wine and my collection of takeaway menus, but given that he's of a Polar persuasion and already lives locally, that's not really helpful. The Mrs thinks flowers. That's not too weird, is it?

Everyone likes a nice box of chocs. Unless they're lactose intolerant, but a truly multicultural society should have zero tolerance for intolerance. Or vegans, but fuck vegans.
