Summer Budget 2015 Briefing Note

Summer Budget 2015 Briefing NoteFollowing the Summer Budget at lunchtime today, we have produced a free briefing note summarising the main personal financial planning and investment related announcements.

Summer Budget 2015 Briefing Note

This was positioned as a Budget for working people. It carried three main themes of higher wages, lower taxes and lower welfare spending.

As the first Tory Budget since 1996, it contained more dramatic attacks on welfare spending than perhaps we have been used to in recent Budget statements.

George Osborne made it very clear that the best route out of poverty is through work, and his Budget measures addressed that balance very clearly.

He delivered on the Conservative manifesto pledge of a higher inheritance tax threshold for family homes valued up to £1m, which will be funded by cutting the tax relief on pension contributions for higher earners.

Within this briefing note we have described the main Budget announcements as they relate to personal financial planning.
