Spring Statement 2018

On Tuesday 13 March 2018 Phillip Hammond presented his Spring Statement. So what exactly did the Chancellor say and, more importantly, what did it actually mean? 

The Spring Statement reaffirms fundamental taxation changes which will affect business and personal lives for the tax year 2018/19. The Chancellor responded to the Office for Budget and Responsibility forecast and consultations on the longer term tax challenges including the implementation of Making Tax Digital for VAT registered businesses.

Written in plain English, we have broken the newsletter down into the main areas of taxation. We have also included comments on the more important changes, together with any planning points that may arise.

Please click here for the summary, we hope this will provide an invaluable update for you and help you get to grips with the changes. We are here to help you navigate and plan your way through the tax maze so please do get in touch if you have any questions.

We hope that you will find it a useful point of reference throughout the coming tax year.
