星工賑救基層

新加坡剛宣讀最新的財政預算案,由於財爺一職由總理大人李顯龍兼任,所以負責讀預算案的責任就交由財政部副部長尚達曼負責。

新加坡這份財政預算案,對做老闆的,以及中下階層人士來說,都算是頗為不錯。對老闆來說,利得稅率由20%減到18%,實行挑戰香港的商業競爭優勢,就是低稅率制度,將新加坡利得稅率減至只比香港的17.5%僅高0.5個百分點,貫徹1月初內閣資政李光耀建議要減至19%或以下。

不過,是次減幅沒有預期那麼強勁,因政府要出錢補貼窮人做工作。根據新財政預算案,目前月薪低過1,500坡元(約6,000港元左右)的工人,除了僱主的公積金供款可以俾少些,吸引老闆請這批工人外,年齡35歲以上,每月賺不夠1,500坡元的工人,可獲政府發放的獎勵花紅(Workfare Bonus)補貼他們的家庭開支,Workfare即所謂「工賑」,讓低下層人士藉工作獲得收入以代替救濟,免得他們生活得那麼慘。如年紀45歲以上或人工低過1,000坡元(約4,000港元)的,政府還額外支付多一些補貼給他們。

想出這樣一個的獎勵計劃,又要減利得稅,政府從那裡調撥資源應付?新加坡政府同時決定狂加消費稅,原本新加坡消費稅由5%,加到7%,搞到禤中怡的新加坡朋友話,不走去馬來西亞的新山或者廖內群島去度周末都唔得。

當然新加坡政府不會狂加消費稅,而不考慮低收入人士的消費處境,所以新加坡政府會發放800至1,000坡元的現金,分四年發放予中下層人士,作為加消費稅的補償。如果你是退休人士、或者正服兵役,你可以得到更多的補助金。新加坡政府在這方面,算得上是有良心。

其實,特首曾蔭權成日咁牙擦嘲諷梁家傑,話梁家傑只懂空談,自己才是實務派。同新加坡政府比較,人至真是「做好呢份工」,曾蔭權同梁家傑可能只是五十步笑百步,新加坡點不只有最低工資,還會出錢補助窮人做工。香港還要等甚麼工資約章,真是「蚊都」,你話被剝削到工資唔夠基本生活的中下層人士,唔奉旨伸大手要綜援就勢係假。

太古又替物業增值

美聯儲局主席伯南克漸見台型,出口術功力雖與前主席格老仍有點距離,但大市依然有反應,相信港股在狗年收爐日可在高位企穩。不過,香港始終有數日假期,海外市場沒有休市,如坐隔夜倉的話,就要小心風險。

息口敏感股如地產股即彈。新地(016)投得將軍澳項目,可能建第二個沙田新城市廣場,值得憧憬,日後或與長實(001)的夢幻之城對撼,難怪股價又破96.05元,準備做「紅底股」。

另一隻收報92.7元的太古A(019)也追上來,希望破100元。談到這隻洋行股,於金鐘的金融公司上班的朋友同禤中怡講,太古廣場又有新噱頭,準備另一項翻新工程,更影響到他們的生活。原來該廣場L1的美食廣場將結業,5個檔口和旁邊的餐廳均消失,日後醫肚的地點又少了一個。太古準備將該位置變為零售用途,實行增加租金收入,皆因出租予名店不但省人手,格調也可提高,當然趁市旺轉型,最開心的當然是股東。至於OL(office lady)如何是好呢?相信往地庫及附近食市外,或許可做點運動,行去PP3,即太古廣場3期那邊的星街小區覓食。禤中怡曾相約於金鐘工作的朋友食飯,碰上下大雨,廣場其他食店在短時間內爆滿,千辛萬苦才找到位子,可見日後搵食更艱難。
