The EPA Drafts Legislation To Track and Report Carbon CO2 Emissions

May 9th, 2015 by admin

Mandatory carbon (CO2) emissions reporting is more important than ever as the United States works with facilities to reduce substances known to adversely affect air quality, the climate, and lead to global warming. Most of the known matter that is destroying the earth’s ozone layer and contributing to global warming is derived from manmade compounds and chemicals with high global warming potential (GWP) and commonly known as greenhouse gases (GHGs).

Around the country a comprehensive initiative, which includes mandatory carbon emissions reporting has been introduced by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the intention of controlling carbon dioxide (CO2) and greenhouse gases (GHGs) that have an effect on global climate change. Unfortunately, some substances like refrigerant gases not only have high global warming potential but they also destroy the ozone layer when emitted into the atmosphere.

The U.S. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), working in cooperation with many international governments, reiterate a common message related to the dangers of carbon emissions. CO2 and its unrestricted use will only lead to more environmental damage therefor more regulations will continue to limit carbon emissions in the future. A measuring, managing, and mitigating greenhouse gas emission places the foundation for future carbon emissions trading schemes within the United States. The European Union has worked on carbon emissions reductions as part of The Kyoto Protocol for a number of years. At a meeting planned in late 2009, global leaders in the fight against climate change will rework and redefine the next set of rules to follow The Kyoto Protocol. The U.S. under leadership form President Obama plan to be active participants.

As part of the draft greenhouse gas (GHG) regulations, any organization that uses refrigerant gases or other regulated substances would be required to comply with mandatory carbon emissions reporting. In addition to refrigerant gases, the following 6 chemical compounds all factor into a comprehensive carbon accounting. The Kyoto Protocol establishes legally binding commitments for the reduction of four greenhouse gases; carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), sulphur hexafluoride (SF6), and two groups of refrigerant gases; CFCs and PFCs.)

Refrigerant gases are known to affect the atmosphere and contribute to global warming. Numerous gases are listed in the EPA regulations including nitrous oxide, methane, carbon dioxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, nitrogen trifluoride, and ethers. Refrigerant gases, such as hydrofluorocarbons (CFCs), must be managed, tracked, and reported under the existing Montreal Protocol. There is some cross-over between the different regulations that restrict harmful emissions. The good news is any CO2 related tracking will further enhance emissions management practices already in place across an organization.

The EPA’s mandatory carbon emissions reporting plan comes into effect in 2010. Companies must file a first report in 2011 covering the previous year. These requirements cover those facilities with HVAC systems, refrigeration and AC systems, companies that make industrial chemicals, as well as fossil fuels, engines and automobiles. Many industrial chemicals harm the environment by destroying the ozone layer or enhance global warming. The following chemicals, such as refrigerant gases, lead to harmful effects on the environment: chlorofluorocarbons, hydrofluorocarbons, halons, methyl chloroform, chlorine, fluorine, bromine and carbon tetrachloride amongst others.

The U.S. Clean Air Act, in addition to the mandatory emissions reporting by amounts, calls for the facilities and municipalities alike to monitor and track and subsequently report harmful substances, such as refrigerant gases that are in common use. Organizations that either cannot comply or choose to not follow the environmental regulations will be fined by the EPA. On top of regulatory fines, companies may experience a financial loss when they are required to buy carbon credits to meet the cap requirements.

Organizations can comply with CO2 emissions management regulations and reporting in a couple of ways. Monitoring and tracking can be handled manually and the reports completed by hand. However this approach can be very time-consuming and error-prone, and many will opt to use a software program or a web-based application to automatically handle the monitoring and tracking requirements of greenhouse gases (GHGs). Automation helps to ensure that reports are accurate and timely. Service automation or CMMS systems can lead the way to effective company operations. It is more efficient to maintain assets at optimal working conditions and collect relevant carbon related emissions data across distributed enterprises or systems.

Mandatory carbon emissions reporting will definitely lower this country’s greenhouse gas emissions. The government has said that 13,000 facilities are responsible for between 85 and 90% of the harmful substances in the air.

The United States, through the implementation of a mandatory carbon emissions reporting program, ensure that businesses will reduce their carbon footprint and will help to mitigate adverse climate changes in the years ahead. This initiative is being repeated at various locations worldwide with the aim of addressing climate change head on – in as straightforward of a manner with immediate financial incentives to drive rapid and economy wide adoption of carbon reduction and market-based trading.

To learn more effective refrigerant management tactics and the tools that support them, you can contact Daniel Stouffer, the Product Manager for Refrigerant Tracker. This web-based software makes it easy to monitor, manage, and report refrigerant gas usage. Stay in compliance with refrigerant management regulations.

How Financial Transparency Ranking will improve Annual Report Contents

May 6th, 2015 by admin

Source Capital and BusinessDAY have come out with an innovative way to improve the level of financial disclosure and transparency in published annual reports. The introduction of a ranking of quoted companies based on the level of financial disclosure and transparency in their published annual reports will improve the contents of annual reports in Nigeria.  

There is no such ranking in the country currently and most companies basically follow the minimum regulatory guidelines in the contents of their annual reports. An evaluation of these contents by analysts who need this information to make an informed investment decision has been largely considered inadequate.  Usually the information in most annual reports are generic, full of platitudes with no in depth explanation of the rational of the business, the risks faced by the business, the strategies put in place to navigate identified risks and forward looking analysis of the company’s position.

Where detailed information is provided, non financial information, that cannot be deduced from the annual report are usually absent. Employee turnover, manufacturing capacity, market share, liquidity position, working capital needs and projections are all information that managers often do not disclose in annual reports. It is to ensure a more detailed disclosure in annual reports, which is the most accessible document, available to all stakeholder interested in a quoted company for their different reason that Source Capital and BusinessDAY have introduced the ranking.

Currently, the FTRA has separate indices for banks and non banks with a separate index for ranking the insurance sector still being worked out.  For banks, the FTRA will cover governance and risk management disclosure in their financial statements.

 The governance section covers disclosures concerning; Board Matters, Remuneration Matters, Accountability and Audit matters. The Risk Management section will analyze the disclosure of banks concerning their Credit Risk, Market Risk, Operational risks, Other risk (Strategy, IT, Legal and Reputational risks) practices.

 Over 100 indices for each area of disclosure have been developed. The sum of points scored by each bank will be covered to percentage scores. The higher the score, the higher the level of disclosure and transparency in the published annual reports analyzed.

The percentage scores will further be converted to an index on a scale of 10 which will be called the Financial Transparency Index (FTI). This index will be attached to the company’s or bank’s listed name on the stock exchange. This will be the indication of the level of financial disclosure by the company or bank, for example if XYZ Bank Plc has an FTI score of 6.5 and ABC bank has a FTI Score 2.5 then any external party looking at this information should easily be able to interpret this to mean that XYZ Bank Plc has a high level of disclosure and transparency in its financial statements than that of ABC Bank Plc.

For none banks, the FTRA will be ranking companies based on the level of their governance disclosures and that of the quality of their Management, Discussion and Analysis (MD%26A). The quality of the MD and A indices have been fashioned based on the exposure draft of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) which is in the process of becoming a non binding accounting standard for companies soon. It is quite detailed and ensures that management convinces all stakeholders that they understand the business they are running.  

In future, there are plans to extend this ranking to the public sector to cover state and local governments.

Usefulness of the FTI

Several studies have shown that companies showing a higher level of financial disclosure and transparency in their annual reports are better managed and financially stronger than companies that have low levels of disclosure and financial transparency.

For investors the Financial Transparency Index will thus serve as a good guide of where to put their money. Companies with higher FTI scores will naturally be a better investment choice than companies that have low FTI scores. The FTI greatly simplifies the investor’s decision making process as he or she no longer needs to go through several pages of different annual reports to see companies that are well managed and that deserve his or her earned money. The FTI will greatly simplify the process of investment choices for investors

How it benefits regulators and other stakeholders;

For regulators, the FTI will be an invaluable tool. At a glance, regulators will be able to easily identify companies/banks that pose high risk to the system and increase their supervision and regulatory activities on these companies or banks. Banks/companies with a low FTI score will naturally have a higher risk level than banks with a high FTI score.

Other Stakeholders

Depositors: The FTI will be a good indication of which bank to place their monies as higher FTI scores will indicate a strong bank or company.

Tax Authorities: A higher FTI score will definitely mean that the bank or company is making correct tax returns while a lower FTRA will mean that the bank or company’s tax returns bear further scrutiny  

Suppliers/Creditors: A high FTI score means a company that is in position to pay its suppliers without much difficulty while a low FTI score will mean that company will likely delay payments to its suppliers and may not be in position to even pay its debts.

A credible advisory board has been formed to administer the FTRA.

How Cyberbit Helps to Prevent Credit Card Scams

April 30th, 2015 by admin

Credit card fraud online is on the increase and the impact it has for online businesses can be damaging and disastrous. There are many risks to face when running an Internet business as you can’t know for definite whose credit card you are actually charging. If the card is stolen, the customer could dispute the charges after the package is shipped or a resentful competitor could put in an order for a large shipment and then dispute the charges and consequently you get huge charge-back penalties. To try and prevent credit card scams you need to acquire a reliable, efficient anti-fraud system that can offer full protection to your online business from fraudulent transactions, such as VFraud, produced by CyberBit.

CyberBit is an internet payment service provider, a credit card processing company and payment gateway. For a proficient and safe method of accepting credit card payments online, CyberBit offers a merchant account that enables transactions to be managed at low costs using a high level of security. The company uses the latest technology and many years experience and knowledge to help combat credit cards scams online. CyberBit applies the most up-to-date SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology for online transactions and uses encryption algorithms to ensure customer data is secure within their databases. Using data collected on internet credit card processing behaviour they have developed a system to reduce fraudulent transactions known as VFraud.

Reduced fraudulent transactions from credit card scams will mean better profits for your business. There are a number of anti-fraud tools included in VFraud such as IP and country comparison, high risk country detection, BIN and country comparison, free email detection, transaction behaviour and transaction velocity. Easy to use, the system can be linked to an already set up website and will work immediately. A fully self-serviced system, once the account is created, load it with the number of transactions needed to run through VFraud and set up the filters as required and you are then protected from 98% of known frauds. VFraud exposes thousands of credit card scams every day.

CyberBit is constantly updating VFraud. Each time a report of a new type of fraud is received, they attach a device to the system to avoid it happening again. In most circumstances CyberBit are able to alert you to the fraudulent order. As soon as an alert is sounded action can be taken straight away as the system works in real time. Another advantage of the system is that data from previous alerts allows it to compare real-time data with historical data, ensuring you are protected from persistent fraudsters.

If your company already has a gateway and bank and you don’t wish to change, then CyberBit will offer the choice of staying with your original providers and can supply the VFraud system alone. VFraud is the only system developed to offer full protection to your online business, popular with both large and medium-sized payment service providers and financial organisations. The system can be extended with new anti fraud shields and is one of a kind.

Companies that have acquired CyberBit’s anti-fraud system, VFraud, have seen for themselves the number of credit card scams reduced significantly. In turn, costs of chargeback penalties and cardholder requests also decline and ultimately profits rise.

Getting an Auto Loan Approval With a Fair Or Slow Credit Rating

April 27th, 2015 by admin

When it comes to applying for an auto loan, credit rating is the barometer used for determining the rate of interest as well as whether or not you will get approved for the loan at all.  A fair credit rating, which is neither impressive nor dismal, is a result of the combination of good and bad reports.  Individuals who have this kind of credit standing might experience difficulty in applying for auto loans or any kind of loan for that matter.

Prime lenders such as major banks and financial institutions tend to be more stringent as to the requirements for loan application particularly with regard to the credit worthiness of the applicant.  If you do not have the greatest credit rating, you should expect to be turned down by most banks, in which case you have to consider applying for loans elsewhere.

To make the application process a little easier for you, it is necessary to seek whatever help you can get.  Online auto financing and lending services will be able to help you out with your predicament by pairing you with possible lenders who are more likely to accommodate your application based on how much you earn as well as your current credit standing.

There are very helpful financial programs (www.BuyingCarswithBadCredit.com) that extend assistance for people who are deemed as undesirable debtors.  There are some financial institutions that do not look at the applicant’s credit score as basis for approval which is definitely good news for you.

There are a few online resources that you can tap in order to make your loan application get processed and approved faster.  It is also imperative that you make a comparison between the offers from creditors as far as the interest rates and terms of the loan is concerned so that you will know which deal would be most beneficial to you.

It is advisable to do a little bit of research when you know that you are not the best candidate for a prime loan.  Make certain that you choose the right car to buy in order to increase your chances of getting approved for the loan you are applying for.  Having a fair credit rating might be a little tricky but there is always a way around it as long as you have all the information you need.

Cyber Crime Definition

April 24th, 2015 by admin

Cyber Crime Definition – activity that uses computers, Internet and/or other digital devices to transmit and receive data for criminal intent. Examples include the download of music files illegally, illegal perpetration of online bank accounts, and planting viruses or other malicious files to expose and exploit confidential information. Today, cyber crime definitions abound, and the following summary provides a brief introduction to cybercrime.

Substantive cyber crime articles are difficult to find as many are outdated and fail to properly categorize and share ideas with readers that outline methods of fighting cybercrime or how to properly support cyber crime victims. This mix and match of cyber crime information also prevents victims from making accurate cyber crime reports. As digital technology races the Global community into the future, cyber law and cyber crime easily keeps pace. Recent computer crime reports tend to focus on internet fraud, and cyber crime study, surprisingly, is still left to novices and conventional crime fighters. These factors heighten the urgency behind informing individuals and organizations of what is cyber crime and how to stop cyber crime. The cyber crime definition is still quite broad.

Cyber Identity Theft and Computer Hacking appear to most as the most recognizable types of cyber crime, and typically describe the theft of personal information from individuals or organizations. Phishing and pharming target inexperienced or unsuspecting victims by directing them to websites that successfully keep their criminal intent hidden. These sites may even look familiar enough to a potential victim to allow for theft of personal identification information:

Full Name
Phone Number
Address
Login
Password
Credit Card/Bank Account numbers

Cyberspace crime goes much further than Identity Theft, and cyberbullying has become enough of a hot topic that it may quickly trump Identity Theft’s infamy. Recent Wiki Leak and Hactivist news topics show the Global nature of cybercrime, and broaden, or maybe muddy, the cyber crime definition. Cyber crime protection is becoming a popular subject.

5 most common problems reported by mortgage applicants

April 21st, 2015 by admin

Most of us have friends and family members who have applied for a mortgage loan but have been rejected by lenders on various basis. It’s really hard to make a definitive list of what will surely get you rejected and what could possibly slip, but there are things we know of, that are easily interpreted as a negative factor by the banks. Read on to discover what they are.

Low income. Your annual income will determine the amount of loan available to you to begin with. There’s no point in aiming to purchase a house which is, unfortunately, way beyond your current buying power. In order to avoid disappointment set yourself realistic expectations and either keep to them during your property search, or postpone the mortgage application until your circumstances have improved.

Low credit score. Low credit score and bad credit history are probably the most common reason for mortgage rejection across the whole financial sector. It’s vital to check your credit score well beforehand because every rejection further lowers your credit rating and leads to a vicious circle of constantly deteriorating credit history.

Debts in the way. On the surface, it’s quite obvious that lenders hesitate to borrow money to the people who already have substantial debts. The other side of the coin is, however, the fact that very few people currently live without relying on credit cards and other credit facilities. If banks limited their customer base to only those people with pristine rating – they’d probably be out of business very soon. It is said that using more than 40% of your available credit will show you in a bad light and reduce the chances of successful mortgage application. Before visiting the mortgage broker, sort your bank accounts first.

Second mortgage. In the current economy banks are very reluctant to borrow money for second and next properties. The justification seem to be the major impact the first mortgage usually has on the applicants budget already. Banks think that second mortgage will cripple your financial ability completely and leave you vulnerable to money related problems.

Inability to understand the small print. While lenders’ marketing efforts would have you believe that all there is to a mortgage contract is the length of the loan and the interest rate, it’s far from the truth. A lot of people sign their agreements without properly checking them out first and discover unfavourable conditions only a couple of years down the road. If you have problems understanding your mortgage agreement, like the majority of people, consult a person fluent in ‘lawyer-ish’ or get in touch with an actual solicitor to have everything explained.

Mortgage requires a lot of planning and careful consideration. Check out Mortgage UK for more information and valuable advice on chosing the best type of mortgage available.

Instructions to bank money with credit cards:

Knowing what credit card to select can be over whelming, the number of credit cards on offer can divert you from your original objectives as making an allowance for a new one. However if you are on familiar terms with what to watch out for, in that case you can save money through it. Pursuing a number of these instructions can save you from unnecessary charges, interest rates and will lead you in finding the accurate offer for your particular requirements.

A number of credit cards will wipe all your interest free days, outstanding on previous acquisitions and start charging interest. All your debt will acquire interest charges and you wont get more interest free days until all your arrears are paid back.

2. Lower interest rates bank you more: You can save hundreds on interest charges yearly if you have a lower interest rate credit card. Make use of graphs or interest calculator to perceive the variation between what interest charges are applied to, by means of differing debt balances and interest rates.

3. Use a balance transfer: When you wish to change credit cards you are able to get a break on interest charges for a definite amount of time, balance transfers put forward low to no interest charges on your card debt for the time of months.

4. Shell out more than the minimum reimbursements: Just paying the smallest amount off your credit card every month will not lessen your debt very fast; you will mostly be just paying off interest. You can transfer the debit to a low interest rate personal finance if you are having some problem meeting your financial responsibilities.

5. Evaluate your credit card reports.
6. Select credit cards that go well with your reimbursement habits.
7. Make use of Credit Card charge concessions.
8. Stay away from overdue payments penalties.

Would you buy a laptop on credit

April 15th, 2015 by admin

I remember years ago when I was a student,  owning a desktop computer let alone a laptop was not a simple thing. There weren’t many retail shops selling computers like today. Bringing a laptop into a lecture hall was something most students wished for and it engendered a sense of pride and respect. However, the reality was that the computer labs were always crowded with students deeply engaged not on social networking but with their academic work.  If you asked them whether they would buy their laptops on credit, most would have answered in the affirmative. Of course I eventually got my very first new and ‘cheap laptop’ on credit even though I ended paying spending over one thousand pounds on the laptop. Just to remind you that things have got better and these days you need less than an average weekly income to buy a new or refurbished laptop.

So would you buy a laptop today on credit? Some would quickly say yes if it is a Mac. Some would say they would rather save and pay for it up front. Before we delve further into this topic, let us ask ourselves what has changed so as to render buying a laptop on credit less desirable. We have been through the boom years and most people have had jobs, students can easily access student loans and grants. Most importantly, the prices of laptop computers have come down significantly and the entry of netbooks in to the market enables the low end purchasers to buy netbooks from as cheap as one hundred pounds. As a whole, things have got better; there are lots of cheap laptops around that are truly affordable and value for money. These are not simply refurbished laptops but top cheap laptops that are high performers.  So, it can be rightly said that most people should be able to buy new or used laptops without any need of credit and thereby saving themselves some cash for better things unlike me who had to pay a lot of interest on my first laptop. Why then do I ask if you would buy a laptop on credit?

As a follow on an article on the general health of the UK high street electronic retailers like Currys, Argos, Comet, Best Buy etc and why they are not doing well (all of them save Dell reported losses last year). I will endeavour to point out that easing off their credit hold a bit might be a quick fix solution to their appalling sales figures.  You can find the previous article entitled ‘Is it doom and gloom for the UK high street?’ in my blog.. To start, it might seem ridiculous to suggest that credit should be available for items such as laptops that cost less than £200. Well, it might seem petty, but looking at the current economic climate, this proposition might seem quite plausible. First, let us ask; who is it that might require such a facility? The truth is there are many people out there who might use it if it is available. Some might not have the courage to ask for it. Students are definite takers, and the already over-burdened working class who are just tottering on the edge might benefit from it.  With the inflation rate predicted to hit 5% and the freezing of workers  pay added to the rising cost of energy (gas, electricity and petrol), there is little cash left to splash out. But the grim truth is that these retailers need to offload their stock otherwise they will be forced to sell them at throw away prices. They need an urgent turnover.

To back up my point, let us take a look at the banking industry. After the reckless lending in years of boom when banks were phoning people up with very handsome loan offers, we know the credit crunch set in and ever since, the banks have been tight on the funds. The businesses are literally begging for funds but to no avail. The working class is even worse off; you must be squeaky clean to stand a chance of getting a loan. Consequently, the high rate interest lenders e.g. payday loans are having a field day raking in profits and growing at terrific rates. When the high street closes the door, these alternative lenders are cashing in and because there is a demand that is not being satisfied by the stingy banks, they are left a huge chunk of share in the market. The same observation can be made in the electronic retailing. I am not surprised that a lot of companies have stepped up of late advertising ‘the alternative to high street or mainstream online shopping’. They offer the very stuff sold in the high street and on mainstream online shops but have a variety of payment methods. For example, they offer weekly payments without rigorous credit scoring and I won’t be surprised to see massive turnovers by the end of the year. They are plugging a hole left by the credit crunch and austerity measures introduced by the government. I sympathise with the high street retailers because they have to walk the thin rope of risk management and profitability, between their customers and shareholders.

It is during tough times like this that great entrepreneuring minds come up with strategies to steer their businesses out of the stormy seas of uncertainty. There are no easy or quick fix solutions but there is an urgent need to turn the tide and steer these great companies back into profitability and one sure way of doing this is by increasing turnover. There is demand out there, people need cheap laptops, students as never before are reliant of notebooks, netbooks and are increasing  using tablets such as Iphone’s ipad, Samsungs galaxy, Blackberry’s playbook etc. Most people are now acculturated into the cutting edge technology and are as never before upgrading their computers. There is demand out there but it might require thinking outside the box to rope this in.

Advantages of Business Credit cards

April 12th, 2015 by admin

Arguably, controlling finances may be the most efficient approach to achieve revenue within the company globe. Sadly for organizations, this may not be so simple because the variety of employee raises. For instance, a solitary baker can easily go to the meals retailer, acquire his supplies, and leave realizing exactly just how much funds he invested. If the baker, nevertheless, sent his assistant rather, he may well hear back, ‘it was like $120,’ and be forced to watch for an expense report to understand just how much money he actually invested. Now, let me introduce a third situation: the baker remains in his kitchen, being productive, he sends his assistant for the shop for a lot more sugar and flour, and is aware of precisely how much he spent as a result of business credit cards. These cards work just like normal credit cards, only they stand to get a company instead of the particular person. The similarity might not be that obvious but to people who personal a business credit score card, they’re really enjoying it. Study on and locate out much more about its benefits.

Track your expenses as simple as ABC

Regardless how many credit cards you have, with enterprise credit card you are going to certainly maintain track of the costs. As opposed to other businesses that must wait for months simply to see their month to month bills. Using the aid and utilization of a business credit card you’ll definitely be able to examine your record. This way your boss will knows just just how much he owes and just how much he should still invest.

It really is offered with separate account

There are several company owners who truly discover it hard to manage the cash from enterprise and residence. The key here is actually funds management. Utilizing a company credit score card can actually assist remedy this difficulty. Its features are previously inclusive using the account you are going to opened up. In fact, a card could possibly be opened up having a new financial institution completely. The alternative of a 2nd account for professional expenses is a large benefit.

You can use freely

If we go back for the baker, he was capable to send his assistant out in two instances. In the initial one, with out using Business Credit cards he would have needed to give money or forced the assistant to pay from his personal pocket. With no specialized card, only if the card owner can use it. With Business Credit cards an organization name can go within the ‘cardholder’ spot, and any worker can utilize it. That is easy.
