Spring Statement 2018
Posted on 13th March 2018 at 19:30
The Chancellor detailed his Spring Statement today, 13 March 2018. The aim of the statement is no longer to announce tax and spending changes (that now occurs just once per year in the Autumn Budget) but simply to give an update of the overall health of the economy, an update on progress made since the Autumn Budget and an invitation to people to give views on any changes the government are considering.
So, while no one was expecting any tax changes, the one pressing concern on all contractor’s minds (and mine!) was if there would be further word on the IR35 Private Sector Consultation mentioned in the Autumn Budget.
