5th March 2021
When Rishi Sunak stood to deliver this year’s Budget, we all knew this was going to be an exceptional one – because, frankly, everything’s exceptional right now.
We also knew it was going to be exceptional because many of the headliners had been flagged in advance – as is the way now.
In these pandemic powered times, the Budget was designed to ‘protect the jobs and livelihoods of the British people’, and the scope is far-reaching indeed.
Perhaps most significantly, it was some of the things Rishi didn’t say that caught the eye. For those, we will have to wait until a further ‘Tax Day’ reveals all on 23 March.
Our specialists have run their eye over the detail and each of the relevant sections below have been updated to reflect the announced changes. These relate to businesses and individuals alike.
As businesses begin to shake off the shackles of Lockdown 3 and the vaccination roll out continues apace, there is definitely a sense of optimism – tempered, understandably, with massive caution. We understand there won’t be any quick fixes, but businesses are ready to act. And act fast.
And, talking of acting fast, now’s your chance to sign up for a very special event to celebrate International Women’s Day. On 25 March, our friend, entrepreneur and ex-Dragon’s Den investor, Jenny Campbell will be joining us for thought-provoking chat and an interactive Q&A. This is for all female leaders and entrepreneurs – it’s totally inclusive to women but not exclusively for women. Grab you place – right HERE, right now.
Incredible as it may seem (or maybe not?), our specialists have been happy to pick up on any queries relating to this post-pandemic business world for almost a full calendar year.
If you have any questions, please get in touch HERE.
It goes without saying that we’ll return in a few weeks to cover the fall out from the Chancellor’s Tax Day.
Until then, stay safe, positive and full of some of the joys of Spring.
