This was the last Spring Budget, so all future announcements will be made in the Autumn Statement that will become the budget.
Many of the headline rate changes had been announced in the Autumn Statement, so there wasn't a a great deal of change. However the stand out points have been the widely discussed changes to NI for the self employed and the reduction in the 0% band for the dividend tax.
A welcome announcement was the delay by 1 year of Making Tax Digital for the self employed where the turnover is below the tax threshold.
There was also some welcome relief in business rates for small business. Whether this is enough for some we wait and see.
While there have been some welcome increases in welfare spending it feels like a token gesture. The sector faces much larger problems which need to be addressed.
