An afternoon with the Rossendale Trust

Yesterday, we were invited by The Rossendale Trust to visit their facilities and meet all their runners participating in the Great Manchester Run, taking place on Sunday 22nd May.Untitled

We were warmly welcomed by the staff, organisers and one of the Trust’s tenants, Trevor Kennerley, who will be taking part in the 10k run in May.

The main objective of the visit was to see for ourselves where our fund-raising money will be going and to understand the important work and dedication The Rossendale Trust performs on a daily basis, 365 days a year.  And of course, ask the awkward question on how to get out of the run…..!

 

Please help us raise money for a charity close to our hearts

We have 10 runners from Collect a Case and JustEco running with, and for the Trust, each with a passion to raise as much money as possible.  Individually, our runners have been training since the start of the year by undertaking various running programmes, special diets and routines and we can’t wait for this challenge.

Why are we supporting The Rossendale Trust?

The Rossendale Trust provides supported living care to adults with learning and physical disabilities in purpose built apartments in Sutton and Macclesfield and houses in Buxton. The Trust continually strives to create an environment where everyone is encouraged to reach and live to their own personal full potential.

The Trust provides care and support to 58 individuals. With their approach to supported living, it empowers each person to live their own lives. But this costs money, and even though the Trust is supported by the local authority it needs all the assistance that people can offer, and that’s where we can help.

We consider local community involvement to be an essential role within any company and we take great pride in the support we are able to offer.

News from last weeks budget…

Osborne announces that CMC regulation will move to the FCA.

The government has taken huge steps in making the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) take on the responsibility for regulating claims management companies.

Announced as part of Last week’s budget, the Chancellor of the Exchequer said that a tougher regulatory regime for claims management firms would be introduced, as the current Claims Management Regulatory Unit lacked the regulatory toolkit necessary to minimise loss and maximise its fulfilment.

This followed a review of the claims management industry which recommended a cap on the amount these companies can charge.

‘The government is clamping down on the rogue claims management companies that provide bad service and bombard customers with nuisance calls,’ it was heard yesterday.

Osborne went on to say:

‘The new regime will be tougher and will ensure claims management company managers are held personally accountable for the actions of their businesses.’

The Treasury said the FCA would be put in charge of the new regulation.

‘In order to ensure that the new regulatory regime is implemented effectively, the government intends to transfer responsibility for regulating claims management companies.’

The move to regulate claims management firms follows a National Audit Office report into financial mis-selling redress, which discovered claims management firms made between £3.5 billion and £5 billion from the total £22 billion paid out to victims of payment protection insurance mis-selling.

The claims management regulation unit was established in 2007, and was originally only intended to be an interim measure.

Turnover from personal injury claims in the sector was £309.7m in 2015, compared with £238.2m in 2014 and £354.1m in 2013.

Around 900 claims management companies were operating in the personal injury market by the end of December, the smallest the sector has been since regulation began in 2007.

This action will take effect in 2017.

 

 

Collect a Case and Just ECO are taking part in something amazing in May…

Every year we go above and beyond the call of duty to help raise money for charities nationwide, such as the Gene Association, Save the Children and Macmillan Cancer Support.

This year we’ve decided to do something different.  We’re focussing all of our energies and attention on one local charity, The Rossendale Trust, making it the main beneficiary of our fundraising efforts during 2016.

That’s why Collect a Case will be taking part in the Great Manchester 10K Run on Sunday 22 May 2016.

We have 10 runners running with, and for the Trust, each with a passion to raise as much money as possible.  Individually, our runners have been training since the start of the year on various programmes, diets and routines and we can’t wait for this challenge.

We consider local community involvement to be an essential role within any company and we take great pride in the support we are able to offer to our chosen causes.

The 10K is a classic distance that covers all the bases.  It’s far enough to test you without destroying you in a way that a longer event can, yet short enough to enter a quick time, even if you are new to running.

The route takes runners through the heart of Manchester, passing by iconic tourist sites such as the Imperial War Museum and Manchester United’s home ground, Old Trafford.

We consider local community involvement to be an essential role within any company and we take great pride in the support we are able to offer to our chosen causes.

Let us tell you about this wonderful cause.

The Rossendale Trust provides supported living care to adults with learning and physical disabilities in purpose built apartments in Sutton and Macclesfield and houses in Buxton. The Trust continually strives to create an environment where everyone is encouraged to reach and live to their own personal full potential.

The Trust also organises annual fetes, a Worktaste programme (click here to view their video) and other fun events such as ‘Helpful Hands’ where you can get involved and volunteer your time during the day to help maintain the grounds in Sutton.

If you would like to contribute towards this worthy cause, please follow the link below:

Whether you want to raise money for a charity close to your heart, or help to support a good cause, please get involved either by contributing or getting your legs out, there are still a couple of places available…

Wish us luck!!

Freeing up hidden costs…

Have you ever thought about unnecessary costs wasted on printing, posting and physically chasing applications within your business?

On average, you spend approximately £3.70 on each individual case you handle…

This seems acceptable, but when you’re converting at 30% and you’ve sent out 50 packs, are 15 completed cases good enough or sustainable?

Let’s break it down. Taking in consideration the cost of:

Wages: £42 per day
(Minimum wage)

Printing/Paper: £0.15 (per sheet)

Envelope: £0.10

Postage: £1.29
(average) per case

Pack chasing: …time
wasted

Calculation

£42 (wages) ÷ 50 (number of cases) = £0.84

10 (Sheets) x £0.15 = £1.50

Envelope £0.10

Postage £1.29 Average Per Case

 

= £3.73

 

On the basis of 50 cases each having the value of £200 with a 30% conversion, you’ll see a profit of £2,825 per day, after deducting your overall cost (from the above sum).

By using Collect a Case, you can free up hidden costs.

Yes, that’s right! You can now release valuable time and money within your key sales force from chasing applications from posted packs that stood minimal chance of being returned.

Our service mean that you will no longer need to award holiday pay or cover salaries when staff aren’t sitting or chasing individual cases.

…but when you’re converting at 30% and you’ve sent out 50 packs, are 15 completed cases good enough or sustainable?

With Collect a Case, you pay £49 per case.

Converting at 90%, you’ll receive 45 cases back.

That’s a revenue of £9,000 – an extra £3,725 after you’ve paid the appointment fee.

You could say our service pays for itself…

Simple right?

Typically we would expect to see an increase in return rates of applications from around 30% on postal signature applications up to 90% by using the service provided by Collect a Case.

Posting and waiting for signature packs will seem like a thing of the past. With our interfacing technology representing your company, you’ll never be waiting on your client’s signature or important documents to be returned and signed again.

Our software allows you to track your document from that first initial input, right through to receiving the completed pack back on your desk.

You have our assurance that the individual visiting your client will present themselves as if they were working directly for your company. We have highly skilled field agent staff, equipped with the latest mobile technology and knowledge to ensure that your cases are collected quickly and professionally.

 

 

More changes to your pension plan

Since April 2015, anyone over the age of 55 has been able to withdraw an uncapped amount of money from their pension pot, subject to income tax.

This means that more people will be able to retire and take money from their pension without having to buy an annuity to do so. The introduction of the Pension Freedom Strategy has given people greater power on how they spend, invest or save their money.

This sounds good, but the entire process has been highly criticised for causing confusion. How can anyone plan for their future if the piggy bank keeps moving?

So what’s new?

The Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, said that forthcoming changes to the way pensions are taxed will encourage saving.

The idea is likely to be seen as encouraging for those who believe that pensions should continue to be taxed when money is taken out of them, rather than before it is put in.

Another idea from the Treasury is to make pension saving more like contributions to Individual Savings Accounts like (ISAS), which are taxed on the way in, but subsequently grow tax-free.

Sounds great for the average wage earner, but millions of high earners would lose out with this system.

Are we going to continue ‘Punishing’ high earners?

Another change being considered by Parliament is to replace variable tax with a single, flat-rate tax.

Let us explain.

Presently, basic rate taxpayers receive 20% tax relief, higher rate taxpayers receive 40%, and those with the highest incomes receive 45%.

This could be replaced with a single flat rate taxation of anything between 25% and 33%.

Sounds great for the average wage earner, but millions of high earners would lose out with this system.

How would a flat rate work?

A higher rate taxpayer making a £10,000 pension contribution currently gets a tax relief of £4,000.

Under a new flat rate of 25%, they would only receive £2,500, which is a loss of £1,500.

However a basic rate taxpayer would gain £500.

The higher the rate chosen, the more savers would gain, but the more it would cost the Treasury.

This story is set to carry on and we will continue to keep you updated with any developments.

More news for Personal Injury companies…

Car insurers paid out £2.4bn less in 2014 than in 2010 despite warnings of an increase in injury claims.

New figures have revealed that car insurance claims have fallen by 29% since 2010, just one month after George Osborne announced new measures to restrict fraudulent minor injury claims and save insurers £1bn a year.

Government figures suggest that minor injury claims cost the insurance industry around £2bn every year, which equates to approximately £90 per policy, as previously reported in on December. IS THIS THE END FOR PERSONAL INJURY COMPANIES?

During his Autumn statement last year, the Chancellor of the Exchequer said the costs for insurers were ‘out of all proportion to any genuine injury suffered’.

As a result, compensation for minor whiplash injuries sustained in car accidents will be banned and the threshold at which personal injury lawyers can take cases to the small claims court will rise from £1,000 to £5,000.  This will reduce legal costs putting the personal injury sector at threat and could possibly result in the closure of many personal injuries companies.

Why is the Government doing this?

Earlier last year Aviva reported that the number of motorists making claims for whiplash related injuries had soared to more than 840,000, a 9% increase from 2013-14, a near-record level. WHIPLASH CLAIMS REVVED UP!!!

Aviva referred to the issue at the time as our compensation culture, with too many claims still being either fraudulent, staged or extremely exaggerated.

Thompson Solicitors, an experienced personal injury practice, say;

“Motor insurers have exaggerated the problem and as a result landed a multi-billion pound windfall”.

Motor insurers want Aviva to issue a breakdown of its profits after accusing the insurer of exaggerating minor injury claims problems.

Claims costs for insurers have been falling significantly over the last five years, but exaggerations of a whiplash claims problem has been used to attack the rights of honest motorists and has meant huge profits and dividend windfalls for the major motor insurers and their shareholders.

It seems that Aviva want to have it both ways; they want us to believe there is a pandemic but also they say that their business is lucrative.

Premiums have increased in the last year.  Motorists are threatened with legal changes that mean in the event of being involved in a road accident, they will either be awarded less compensation, as they’ll have to pay for their own lawyer or they will have to take on insurers directly themselves.

If there is a crisis show us the evidence…I’m guessing we haven’t heard the last of this story and we’ll continue to keep you updated with any development.
