Student loans in England: financial year 2015-16

32. Table 1 has historically shown repayments via PAYE and Self Assessment as an aggregated figure. In 2015-16 they have been separated out. The Self Assessment data received by SLC comprises an annual file received in March each year followed by monthly files containing small additions and revisions. The annual file for March 2016 was not posted by SLC until 6/4/2016 which meant it was outside the data capture for Table 1. However, given the significance of that data to the trend in repayments it has been added into Table 1. The affected figures in that table have been marked with an ‘e’ for Estimate. The closing balance has been adjusted in line with the adjusted repayments. However, there would also have been interest released on the back of these repayment postings that we have not estimated so the interest in the year is slightly understated and the closing balance is slightly understated to the same extent. In next year’s publication these amounts will be omitted from 2016-17 given that they have been accounted for in 2015-16.

Student Funding Panel. An analysis of the design, impact and options for reform of the student fees and loans system in England

Student Funding Panel. An analysis of the design, impact and options for reform of the student fees and loans system in England

If changes are made which reduce estimates of the RAB charge over the long term, then any increase in the cash elements of the BIS Resource Departmental Expenditure Limit would still need to be negotiated with Treasury as part of the spending round discussions. Conversely, if the RAB was to increase over time, then the impact on the cash elements of the BIS RDEL would also need to be negotiated with Treasury (in this scenario with the expectation that they would need to be reduced to accommodate a higher RAB charge). However, following recent changes in the treatment of student loans in BIS departmental budgets (HMT Consolidated budgeting guidance in July 2014) there is now a mechanism for dealing with changes in the RAB above a target figure set by HMT. In summary this means that HMT sets a target RAB for BIS (currently 36%) which sits as a non-cash impairment in the BIS RDEL. Any excess RAB charge over this is applied to the BIS RAME and charged back to BIS RDEL over the next thirty years potentially impacting on other areas of departmental spending. There is therefore now a more immediate incentive for BIS to reduce the RAB charge closer to levels agreed with the Treasury. However it is important to note that, as the IFS has pointed out 70 ,

Further changes in the student finance system were introduced in the academic year 2006/07 as a result of the Higher Education Act 2004. From September 2006 new students attending institutions in England and Northern Ireland could be charged variable tuition fees of up to £3,000. New students, including EU students, were able to take out a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of these fees; this effectively abolished the upfront payment of fees for new students starting courses in 2006 onwards. These changes mean that many students now take out two loans – a tuition fee loan and a maintenance loan to cover living costs. A further change occurred in September 2012 when tuition fees were raised to a maximum of £9,000 a year. This steep rise in fees increased the size of loans taken out by students and would potentially over time significantly enlarge the size of the student loan book held by the Government.

Fiscal Year 2015-16 Accountability Report

Fiscal Year 2015-16 Accountability Report

$18,593,632, and state appropriations accounted for 6% or $12,211,610 or revenues recognized this fiscal year. For the past several years, the University lobbied for additional funds through the state budget process to make up the $7.8 million in budget cuts that it sustained between fiscal years 2008-2012. Consistent growth in student enrollment for the past several years, minor increases in certain tuition charges, and the continued successful efforts to manage spending, increase efficiencies and generate additional revenues has enabled the University to absorb the appropriation reductions. Those lobbying efforts paid off during the current fiscal year when non- capital recurring state appropriations increased by $1.4 million or 12.5% from the prior year. The state also awarded the University additional nonrecurring funds for the second year in a row. These nonrecurring funds, in the amount of $106,505, were for bonus pay. In addition to its state appropriations, the University received appropriations from both Horry and Georgetown Counties. This gives the University the ability to take on specific projects in the interest of the citizens of those counties which also benefit the University community. The University is committed to financial viability and managed growth. The total Fall 2015 undergraduate enrollment was 9,615, representing a 2.7 percent (251 students) increase over the previous fall and a 12.9 percent increase since the Fall 2011 enrollment of 8,517. Total full-time equivalency (FTE) enrollment for Fall 2015 undergraduates was 9,435 representing a 3.6 percent growth over the previous fall and an 11.6 percent growth since Fall 2011 from a total undergraduate FTE of 8,455.

2015 Half-Year Financial Report

2015 Half-Year Financial Report

According to the accounting method used until 2014, when an acquisition or investment was made, the transfer taxes applied to a later, theoretical sale were directly entered in shareholders’ equity. Any change in the fair value of the properties during the financial year was recognised in the income statement. Since 01.01.2015, transfer taxes on acquisitions and investments, and any variation in the fair value of the properties during the financial year, are immediately recognised in the income statement 1 . Cofinimmo opted for this change in accounting method in order to (i) simplify the accounting method for recognizing transfer taxes and (ii) to align itself with the practices of other REIT (Real Estate Investment Trusts) in Belgium and other countries.

2015 HALF-YEAR FINANCIAL REPORT

2015 HALF-YEAR FINANCIAL REPORT

As a result of the fair value measurement of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed of the two entities, Valeo revalued its property, plant and equipment, including property assets, in an amount of 12 million euros, and recognized provisions chiefly in respect of specific quality risks, in an amount of 10 million euros. After these adjustments and restatements had been accounted for in the statement of financial position at the acquisition date, the purchase price accounting led to the recognition of 80 million euros in goodwill. This goodwill chiefly reflects the operating and tax synergies expected to result from the transaction, which will allow Valeo to develop the Lighting business within its Visibility Systems Business Group in North America, in both the original equipment business with Valeo's long-standing customers and in the aftermarket business. The transaction also aims to improve industrial performance and the efficiency of the purchasing and research and development networks of this business.

Higher Educational Accessibility and Financial viability: The Role of Student Loans

Higher Educational Accessibility and Financial viability: The Role of Student Loans

originating the student loans either from current tax revenue (like any other governmental expenditure) or from revenue borrowed from the national and or international capital markets and added to all other governmental borrowing, to be repaid from future tax revenues. Of course, there are limits on the borrowing capacity of any government, especially a government whose ability to tax and/or to maintain the value of its currency may be suspect in the views of domestic and international capital markets—as in most developing and many transitional countries. But these very limitations apply as well to the worth of the governmental guarantee: a government that might not be able to repay its debts to domestic bondholders or international lenders may be as unlikely to be able to cover the defaulted debts it has guaranteed. In such cases (again, applying mainly to developing as well as to some transitional countries with limited taxation capacities), the need to cover the risks of generally-available student lending can be at least lessened through judicious use of co-signatory requirements, with the government as a primary guarantor only for families with insufficient collateral, and then a secondary guarantor for families who are able to co-sign the loan and bear a part of the risk. But in the end,

The consultation estimated that the average cost of doctoral study ranges from £45,000 (for a three year degree in lower cost location) to £73,000 (for a four year degree in a higher cost location). It noted that the proposed loan amount would cover around a third to a half of these costs and stated that this “balances the incentives, to ensure students will continue to make considered and informed decisions about pursuing further study at this level.” 44

Student Loans. A straight forward guide to managing your student loans.

How much student loan debt you think you will acquire by the time you graduate? If you are planning on becoming a professional like a doctor, you may need to borrow in excess of $100,000. Far too many people borrow for their education without considering the long term costs of the loan and whether or not they can afford to pay back the money. Before you decide to proceed with taking out student loans, make sure you have mapped out your future earning potential and you have plans in place to pay them back. What will be your monthly payments on the loans? How long will you be paying them back (generally 120 payments/months or 10 years)? Will you have the monthly income to be able to sustain these payments? A good rule is to keep your monthly payments to no more than 8% of your estimated gross income after graduation.

Student Loans as Taxes

Student Loans as Taxes

The only students who end up paying more under REPAYE’s payment schedule are those who would otherwise have had some loan forgiveness. Consider our lawyer from the earlier example, who has low income for the first 10 years of loan repayment, and thus pays relatively little under REPAYE, but then has high income for the next 10 years. If that person just made the standard loan service payment for those second 10 years, it’s possible that there would still be a loan balance after 20 years, which would be forgiven. But with payments of $48,000 per year or higher, she would likely end up paying off the full balance instead. In that case, accelerating payments would actually increase the total paid. That would be a worthwhile goal. The catch, however, is that it’s also relatively easy to switch out of REPAYE entirely and back to the standard repayment plan. 37 So even those bor-

Financial Report on the first Half-Year 2015/16. Sale of entire logistics portfolio with 36 standing investments

IMMOFINANZ calculates the fair value of derivatives by discounting the future cash flows based on a net present value method. The interest rates used to discount the future cash flows are based on an interest curve that is observable on the market. The following three parameters are required to calculate the credit value adjustment (CVA) and the debt value adjustment (DVA): the probability of default (PD), the loss given default (LGD) and the exposure at default (EAD). The probability of default is derived from the credit default swap (CDS) spreads of the respective counterparty. Derivatives with a positive fair value represent receivables for IMMOFINANZ; in these cases, a CVA calculation is used to calculate the amount of the receivable. One parameter for this calculation is the probability of default for the counterparties. IMMOFINANZ concludes contracts with over 70 financial institutions, and observable CDS spreads are available on the market for many of them. In exceptional cases, average branch benchmarks are used as a substitute for unavailable spreads. These benchmarks represent Level 1 and 2 input factors on the fair value measurement hierarchy. Derivatives with a negative fair value represent liabilities for IMMOFINANZ; in these cases, a DVA calculation is used to calculate the amount of the liability and IMMOFINANZ’s own probability of default must be determined. IMMOFINANZ generally concludes derivatives at the level of the property company that manages a particular property. Neither observable market CDS spreads, nor benchmarks are available for these property companies. CDS spreads are therefore used to estimate credit margins which, in turn, form the basis for deriving the probability of default. The credit margin for IMMOFINANZ is determined in a two-step procedure. The first step involves the calculation of an average margin based on previously concluded credit agreements and term sheets, whereby the time horizon for the applied

No Way Out: Student Loans, Financial Distress, and the Need for Policy Reform

No Way Out: Student Loans, Financial Distress, and the Need for Policy Reform

Student loan policy involves a balancing of the government and taxpayer’s interest in collecting funds against the social and economic goal of promoting equal access to higher education. If all goes well, college graduates earn significantly more money than those with high school degrees. 3 However, this is not always the result. In the current economic environment, a bachelor’s degree may be just the beginning of a student’s educational road. In addition, some college graduates may find that their professions are not as lucrative as they hoped or may lose their jobs as the economy changes. Others will confront unexpected life traumas such as disability, divorce, or death of a family member. Still others will choose career paths where success is not measured in dollars, but in satisfaction and promoting social good, such as teaching and social work. Others will take chances. They might start an innovative business that does not break even on the first try. Yet, while schools may fail and even lenders may fail without severe consequences, borrowers are allowed very little margin for error.
