Autumn Budget 2018 – The Detail

The Chancellor’s Budget holds plenty of promise on paper but business leaders must continue to plan ahead with caution as a Brexit no-deal could lead to more government intervention.

Backed by a £13bn windfall of higher-than-expected tax receipts and lower borrowing figures, the Chancellor has confirmed his intention to increase public spending on the NHS by £20bn per year within the next five years, along with extra funding for mental health services and a £30bn package for new roads and road repairs.

However, the Chancellor has warned that while an end to austerity is ‘in sight’ there is still a lot riding on the Brexit negotiations and a different strategy would be required if the Government is unable to secure a frictionless trade agreement with the EU. With this in mind the budget contained measures to encourage investment but otherwise a few proposals to rock the boat.
