COUNCIL OF THE UNIVERSITY

Council has made the following changes in regulations, to come into effect on 29 February.

College Contributions

In Council Regulations 1 of 2005 (Gazette, Vol. 135, p. 1110, as amended on 21 September 2006, Gazette, Vol. 137, p. 2) concerning College Contributions, delete existing regulation 2 and substitute:

'2. The sum payable by each college under section 5 until 2008 shall be calculated as follows, the tax bands and tax rates for a particular financial year being decided by Council by regulation on the recommendation of the College Contributions Committee before the end of that year.

Payment to be made in Hilary Term, based on accounts for the immediately preceding financial year. The tax bands and tax rates for 2007–8 are as follows:

      On the first £30 million of taxable wealth   NIL
 
      On the next £3 million                       0.10 per cent
 
      On the next £3 million                       0.20 per cent
 
      On the next £3 million                       0.30 per cent
 
      On taxable wealth over £39 million           0.36 per cent'.
[This amendment confirms that the tax bands and tax rates for calculating contributions from colleges in the final year of the current College Contributions Scheme remain the same as for the previous year.]
