    World EV Day: AA says EV ranges are 'far better than drivers think'

    AA president, Edmund King, says battery electric car ranges 'far better than drivers think' and should not - along with concerns about not being able to reach a charge point - put people off buying them. The motoring group's research has been published on World EV Day, which takes place today. On the day earmarked to celebrate electric vehicles and promote their benefits, we examine the latest reports into what would make them more appealing to drivers...

    Stamp duty 'overhaul' needed now, according to Rics

    The stamp duty land tax system needs a radical overhaul to ensure first-time buyers and workers on lower incomes can get on and move up the housing ladder, experts at?the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors has said. The body representing surveyors has called on the Government to carry out a full-scale review of the tax - the temporary reduction of which has led to huge house price rises in the past year. Critics argue that the stamp duty system is unfair and impinges activity across the housing market. While some believe stamp duty should be scrapped altogether, others believe it should be reduced to help keep the market buoyant.

    One of Boris Johnson's many memorable quips was when he is alleged to have said 'f*** business' at an event for EU diplomats during the height of the Brexit deliberations three years ago.

    Boris Johnson yesterday announced a tax raid on workers and investors to finally tackle the care funding crisis. But how will it hit your pocket, and is there anything you can do to soften the blow?

    The Prime Minister and his chancellor Rishi Sunak have announced three major tax rises already in 2021 - two in the Budget in March and another this week to tackle the NHS backlog and fix social care.

    MARKET REPORT: Shareholders cheer B&M profits surprise

    The chain, which has over 600 stores in the UK selling everything from wallpaper to vacuum cleaners, said that profit margins had been stronger than originally predicted, thanks partially to lower levels of discounting, while sales had remained broadly in line with expectations. As a result, the firm now expects to deliver earnings of between £275m-£285m for the six months to 25 September, higher than the £235m predicted by analysts.

    The supermarket's bosses have asked the Takeover Panel to extend the process until October 18 to allow time for a showdown between Clayton, Dubilier & Rice and rival suitor Fortress.

    ASK TONY: BT called in the debt collectors when I found a cheaper deal

    I moved from BT to Expert Telecom and was assured by Expert they would deal with all legal and transfer matters. I have since had a letter from Moorcroft debt agency saying I owe BT £1,148.46 because I was in breach of contract. Apparently the information about a contract which I didn't even realise I was on came by e-mail. I didn't open this email as I was waiting for a cataract operation and couldn't see properly.

    The new electric vehicles debuted at the Munich motor show in 2021

    This week's Munich motor show - or 'Mobility' show as it has officially been dubbed - has been a showcase of what electric cars of the very near future are set to look like. And despite a common misconception, the selection of unveilings in Germany this week suggest they will be as diverse - if not more so - than motors on the road today. Here is a full rundown of the best and most important electric cars launched in Munich this week. In our list is the teeny City Transformer (top left) that can shrink in size, Mercedes-Maybach's luxurious jacked-up EQS SUV limo (top right), Renault's all new electric Megane family car (bottom left) and Hyundai's Prophecy Concept (bottom right) that signals the design of its high-performance EV due in 2022.

    Pay and dismay:?Scammer stole over £300 in just 20 minutes

    When a well-dressed man came to the assistance of RAY BRADBURY and wife Plum after the payment machine they were trying to use refused their card, they assumed he was a friendly local resident or a parking machine engineer who worked for the council. The helpful stranger took them to an alternative payment machine just down the road, but it swallowed their card.

    Triple lock state pension rise cut: What it means for you

    The earnings element of the state pension triple lock will be abandoned for a year, meaning that increases in the state pension will not be dependent on wage rises. The double lock this year will be the higher of September's CPI inflation or 2.5 per cent. This means April's 2022 pension increase is likely to be whatever the September inflation rate is, as this is expected to be 3 to 3.5 per cent. How much have pensioners lost out, what were the other options, and have they dodged a worse outcome for future state pension rises? We explain.

    Nearly two-thirds (64 per cent) of millennials and Generation Z who have owned cryptocurrencies like bitcoin or so-called 'meme stocks' have now sold some or all of them, new research suggests.

    No job... but still lured into debt by 'buy now, pay later' schemes

    One in ten shoppers who used 'buy now, pay later' services is unemployed and dependent on benefits and only half of those who used checkout lending services were full-time employees, our survey found. The sector has continued to grow at a galloping pace since ministers pledged to regulate it. Klarna has more than 15 million UK customers and more than 250,000 retailers on its books.

    Isas protect savers from paying income tax on interest earned. But for the first time since cash Isas were launched in 1999, you are no better off in a fixed rate Isa than an ordinary taxable account.

    Bidding battle for Morrisons goes to auction takeover showdown

    Morrisons has confirmed it is in discussions with its Takeover Panel to launch an auction process for the supermarket chain. Top brass at the supermarket hope the process will bring to an end the three-month battle for the business between two private equity firms, Clayton Dubilier & Rice and Fortress. Morrisons said that, on the basis that neither bidder has declared their offer final, 'such that either offer may be further increased or otherwise revised, a competitive situation continues to exist.'

    How will my NHS pension be affected if I trigger the MPAA?

    I have a small private pension of £38,000 which I want to cash in. I am presently paying in to my NHS pension at least for another three years. I have both a 1995 and 2015 NHS pension. If I cash in my private pension does this mean that it will affect how much I will get from my NHS pension when I retire due to the MPAA?

    Volkswagen unveils the dinky ID.Life - its compact electric car for 2025

    The ID. Life concept is a teaser for the ID.1 or ID.2 compact crossover model set to sit below the already-on-sale ID.3 hatchback from 2025 and will provide up to 248 miles of range on a full charge. Bosses said it will cost as little as?€20,000 when it hits showrooms in four years' time, which is around £17,000 in the UK. That's around £3,000 less than the current smallest VW Crossover - the T-Cross - and also cheaper than the Polo supermini, which starts from £17,300. The concept vehicle shown this week has a design that's centred around young people and communal experiences. It?can be used as a mini cinema or a gaming centre with a retractable projection screen that can be used when the car is parked up. Other scatterings of tech include side cameras instead of door mirrors, a nine-inch display and door pockets with integrated wireless charging function for smartphones.

    Purchased by the vendor over 20 years ago, it was last driven in 2008 before being dismantled for a full restoration job. However, that was never completed, leaving the car stripped in pieces as it remains today.

    While this is only a concept for now, BMW says it intends to make all cars fully recyclable within 20 years. Currently, BMWs are manufactured using nearly 30% reused material on average.

    Dacia Jogger to become the UK's most affordable seven-seat car costing around £13k

    Starting from around £12,900 in the UK, it will cost less than half as much as a Skoda Kodiaq, which is one of the cheapest seven-seaters on the market today. It will also become the first Dacia to offer hybrid technology, though not until 2023. Bosses say the new model will blend 'estate car practicality, MPV spaciousness and SUV styling'. Here's what you need to know about the all new Jogger, which can be ordered from November.

    Former cricketer Matthew Hoggard talks to ME & MY MONEY

    Former cricketer Matthew Hoggard has struggled to make ends meet since pandemic lockdowns destroyed his income. Hoggard, who helped England beat Australia in 2005, opened a barbecue cookery school, Hoggy's Grill, last year.

He lives in Leicestershire with wife Sarah, 43, and son Ernie, 14.

    Your shares have tumbled: So do you sell - or buy even more?

    Selling at a loss means admitting you made a mistake, which is difficult at the best of times - not least when you have money riding on it. And investors are often haunted by the fear that an asset they owned will recover in value as soon as they sell, leaving them racked with regret. Markets plunged in March last year as nervous investors sold out due to fears over the impact of the global pandemic. Now 18 months later, the value of the UK's top 250 listed companies is hitting record highs this week. Investors who sold out when markets were in freefall would have missed out on an epic recovery. So how do you decide the right time to sell?

    Savers finally being rewarded with higher interest rates...if they lock in for a year

    Online bank DF Capital has launched a one-year bond offering 1.45 per cent, for savers with more than £1,000 to put away. This time last year the best paying one-year bond was from Paragon Bank at 1.2 per cent. But if you are willing to tuck your money away for even longer there are better offers to consider. Islamic bank QIB (UK) is offering a three-year bond that pays 1.77 per cent. Savers willing to leave at?least £1,000 untouched for four years could get 1.81 per cent with lender Zopa.

But its biggest seller is expected to be the mid-spec Design trim from £24,140.

    Part 3 of MR MONEY MAKER's guide to building a long-term savings portfolio

    First we go back to our balance sheet. What assets do you and your family already own? Quite likely this will include property but also a pension which will have a blend of asset classes in it. Then most of us will have a muddle of other stuff, including deposit accounts, premium bonds and maybe the odd gold coin left by your favourite auntie. Time then for some proper housekeeping and take an inventory of your assets. You will have already laid out a plan for how much you are going to need in the future. Thus you will know the target number you need to achieve by a certain date. Next week we can start selecting what blend of asset classes you are going to need to achieve that goal.

    How much money do I need to save for my pension?

    The amount you can save into a pension ultimately depends on what you can afford - but the longer you leave it the more you will need to save. We tend to put ambitious targets on our hoped-for income in retirement and then underestimate how much we will need to set aside to achieve that. So how much should you save?
