On Wednesday 11 March 2020 Rishi Sunak presented his first Budget.  In his speech he stated ‘we are at the beginning of a new era in this country. We have the freedom and the resources to decide our own future’. ‘It is a Budget of a government that gets things done’. The Chancellor provided an update on the economy and responded to the Office for Budget Responsibility forecasts. In addition he launched consultations on various aspects of the tax system together with updates on earlier consultations.
