Budget Summary

At King Loose & Co we like to keep clients informed of the current tax rates and allowances and any significant announcements made by the government. As such we produce regular budget summaries which are available to download below or which we can also provide as a traditional printed booklet upon request.

Watch our Facebook page too, where we will publish the date of any forthcoming budgets together with tax tips and advice on any forthcoming deadlines and changes in legislation.

With most tax rates and allowances frozen there was little change, but the abolition of Class 2 National Insurance for the Self-employed (the weekly stamp) and cuts to Class 1 and Class 4 National Insurance for the employed and self-employed there was a nod towards a tax cut.
