Budget Summary - Autumn 2018
The Chancellor has laid out details signalling the end to austerity in a statement delivered between key meetings in the Brexit negotiations. Following good news from the OBR, which reported borrowing £13 billion lower than forecast in March, some of the pressure was off for Mr Hammond. The headline changes announced by the Chancellor included some good news for taxpayers and businesses.
Spring Statement 2018
The Chancellor promised a Spring Statement devoid of mini-Budget trappings, and that is precisely what he delivered. He announced no new spending or tax measures, despite the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) providing a marginally more upbeat forecast. Instead Mr Hammond used his despatch box time to review the economy and launch no fewer than 13 consultations.

Taxes, as we know, are one of the two great inevitables in life, but you can manage your financial affairs to minimise the impact of tax for you, your family and your business. In fact, the Government actually encourages you to make the most of the reliefs and allowances available. These Tax Tips show you how.
The value of tax reliefs depends on your individual circumstances. Tax laws can change. The Financial Conduct Authority does not regulate tax advice, so it is outside the investment protection rules of the Financial Services and Markets Act and the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. The value of your investment, and the income from them, may fall as well as rise, and you may not recover the full value of your investments. Changes in rates of exchange may cause the value of investments that involve exposure to a foreign currency to go up or down. The FCA does not regulate will writing and some forms of estate planning.
