"The change to full expensing for capital investment is potentially seismic for business investment, however we await the detail to know what expenditure will qualify for this relief."

"As expected, the Chancellor confirmed the increase in annual allowance from £40,000 to £60,000. In relation to the lifetime allowance, it was expected he would increase the allowance to £1.8m; however, he has gone further and abolished the lifetime allowance meaning the total size of a pension fund is now uncapped. But given the tapering of the annual allowance for higher earners, this will be of benefit to a limited number of taxpayers. It will be of most benefit to senior public sector workers and doctors in the NHS who have defined benefit pension schemes."
Stephen Kenny | Personal Tax Partner
