Martin Jones, March 14th, 2018 Martin Jones

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.

Our summary of the Spring Statement is available here. 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.

The summary provides an invaluable update for you and will help you get to grips with the changes. It will remain on our site for you to refer to as and when you need it but if you have any questions, don’t forget we are here to help you navigate and plan your way through the tax maze, so please do get in touch.
