    Barclays puts up its overdraft charges for more than one and a half million customers. Typically costs will double. But some will pay less. We delve into the small print. If you are lucky enough to have two UK homes you may have less freedom in future to choose which is exempt from capital gains tax when you sell. Two tax avoidance heavyweights slug it out - which is better pensions, when you can take it all in cash, or ISAs with the new £15000 a year allowance? And PayPal has responded to criticism by extending its buyer protection to intangibles like tickets, downloads, and services.

From October 2015 men born before 6 April 1951 and women born before 6 April 1953 will be able to boost their state pension by up to £25 a week. Is it worth it?

    Pension rules to be scrapped next April - once you reach 55 you'll be able to spend your pension fund as fast or as slowly as you like. But will this freedom leave people better or worse off? Also onto the bonfire of red tape go the rules around tax free savings in an ISA. From July up to £15,000 a year can go into a tax-free ISA and for the first time no discrimination between cash and investments. And will the new system of 'tax-free' child care leave some parents worse off if they give up their child care vouchers in 2015.
