The Spring Budget was packed with measures that were focused more on the individual. While the Autumn Statement that preceded it offered more for businesses.

Together, they provide a framework for the upcoming election. While many may accuse the Government of trying to buy votes, many of the measures will help taxpayers with the cost-of-living crisis and support further economic growth.

This also includes further measures to extend the household support fund, freeze alcohol and fuel duty and a one-off adjustment to rates of Air Passenger Duty (APD) on non-economy passengers.

If you take the politics out of the equation (if you can) and look at the measures presented there are plenty of opportunities for businesses and individuals alike to reduce their tax bills and seek out new opportunities.

The next question on most people’s lips will be when the general election shall be called and what will the opposition’s economic measures look like.

For now, however, there are plenty of actions to take away from this Budget in the coming weeks and months.
