Pre-Budget analysis: Will we see increased funding on social care and cuts to business rates?
The Spring budget is just a day away now, Philip Hammond's first as Chancellor. The last one before the Brexit. And by all accounts whatever small surprises he manages to spring there will be some tax rises to meet a fresh round of spending commitments. How else will he meet extra spending on social care, for example, or that promised business rate relief? With the Spring Budget imminent, predictions on what the Chancellor will have to offer or what he will not offer are well underway. So what can we expect? Nigel Cassidy was joined by Bill Dodwell, Head of Tax Policy at Deloitte to give his pre-budget analysis.
