Budget Report 2018 - Is Austerity Finally Coming To An End?

30th October 2018

Few expected that the Chancellor Phillip Hammond would have any surprises left to spring - How Wrong Were We!

Under pressure to support No 10’s ’end of austerity’ message, bolstered by revised growth forecasts from the Ofice of Budget Responsibility, and safe in the knowledge that it could all go out of the window in the event of a no-deal Brexit, the Chancellor gave the most eventful Budget speech of recent years.

This Budget Report for 2018 from Porter Garland gives a detailed account of the Chancellor’s speech.  The report focuses on the budget outcomes affecting Business, the Individual, Duties and VAT.
