Measures affecting sectors

Our analysis of the Spring Budget 2017 announcements affecting sectors. 

Whilst there weren’t many headline grabbing items from a pensions perspective, this year’s Budget continues the government’s theme of focusing on pension scams and ways that the pension system could be abused.

Also, The Budget has not brought any major surprises to the property sector. Relief from rates for small businesses and pubs as well as the extension of anti-avoidance measures may impact on genuine businesses. Inheritance tax and the restriction of interest and corporate losses to be introduced in April are still a concern for the sector.
