UK Budget: Review (Storify timeline)
Q1. It turns out the decision not to lower the VAT threshold wasn’t a U-turn made by the chancellor. It was the DUP that blocked the measure. Thoughts(?!)
Q2. Business rates are now calculated in part according to the consumer price index and not the retail price index. What the hell does that mean and why is it good?
Q3. The national living wage is going up. For those with employees, will this be economically viable?
Q4. Considering the poor productivity reports and low growth forecasts, are you confident Britian can get the economy into a good place place in time for Brexit?
Q5. There was no IR35 tax avoidance measure for the private sector. This is where self employed people don’t meet HMRC’s definition of “self employed”. There’s going to be a consultation instead. How do you feel about this measure?
