Join us for a Budget Breakfast where we will offer Cumbria Chamber’s response to the Budget with in-depth analysis from RSM UK Group LLP, the leading global audit, tax and consulting service providers
The Chancellor’s Autumn Budget is one of the most eagerly-anticipated in years. It is Philip Hammond’s first opportunity since the General Election to set the tone and direction of economic policy in the run up to Brexit in 2019.
The good news is that public finances are in better shape than expected. Government borrowing is reportedly £10bn lower than forecast on the back of buoyant tax receipts and lower public spending.
While the Chancellor has some wriggle room, reducing government borrowing remains a priority and he faces a raft of spending pressures including demands to boost the supply of housing, ease the burden of student debt, lift the cap on public sector pay and find extra cash for social care and the NHS.
Will there be anything left to provide a stimulus to consumer spending, or to help businesses boost investment and productivity?
Join us for a Budget Breakfast on Friday November 24, when the tax specialists from RSM UK will shed light on the Chancellor’s statement.
Very often, it’s not what it is in his speech that is significant but the small print in the Treasury papers released afterwards.
