Spring Budget 2017
THE CHANCELLOR’s FIRST – AND LAST – SPRING BUDGET
The 2017 Spring Budget will be the last of its type. Probably.
The publication of the Finance Bill in the spring/summer of this year will presage a change in Parliamentary proceedings. A second Budget in autumn 2017, followed by a Spring Statement in 2018, marks the start of a process enabling Parliament to scrutinise tax changes well before the tax year where most will take effect.
As if the domestic ‘flip-flopping’ of a long-standing timetable wasn’t enough, the Chancellor, Philip Hammond, delivered his first Budget speech against a backdrop of Brexit uncertainty. Beyond the laughs from the government benches combined with the usual Opposition scowls, the Chancellor sent out some fairly serious messages.
For starters, as part of a fiscally-tight Budget there was the Chancellor’s decision to target the self-employed, company owners and investors in a bid to raise billions of pounds and provide a “strong and stable platform” for the UK’s negotiations as it navigates a path away from the EU. He also proposed to enhance the fairness in the UK’s tax system, with a view to transforming the economy into one that works for everyone.
