Boo! It’s (almost) Budget time

Oct 01, 2018

Coming three weeks earlier than last year but in the same week as Halloween, will Autumn Budget 2018 be a scarefest or will it calm troubled waters?

Chancellor Hammond announced last week on Twitter that the earlier than usual budget will take place on Monday 29 October as the government prepares for a (provisionally set) Brexit summit in November.  Read the Budget 2018 announcements in a forthcoming edition of Chartered Accountants Tax News.

Although the budget time hasn’t yet been confirmed, it may be slightly later in the afternoon given that Parliament usually commences at 2.30pm on a Monday.
