Spring Budget 2024

With the UK entering a technical recession at the end of 2023 and a general election on the cards this year, Chancellor Jeremy Hunt was under pressure to deliver a Spring Budget that demonstrated fiscal responsibility and generosity.

Dubbing the fiscal statement a ‘Budget for long-term growth”, Hunt focused his speech on delivering tax breaks, boosting investment and tackling unfairness in the UK tax system, with some of the following measures:

✂️ Cutting NI by a further 2p

💸 Increasing the VAT threshold to £90,000

🚘 Extending the fuel duty freeze

📈 Enhancing the funding for high-growth industries
