CHAPEL EN LE FRITH GOLF CLUB, Manchester Road, CELF SK23 9UH:
“THE 2017 AUTUMN BUDGET – AND WHAT IT WILL MEAN FOR YOU…”
With IAN BINGHAM FCA Senior Tax Partner for the North West, BDO Manchester.
Well, your guess is as good as mine. Chancellor Philip Hammond (assuming it’s still him by then…) has a mountain to climb. The government is still spending far more than is coming in, around a billion quid every week: analysts say that if tax and spending plans remain on course for the rest of the financial year, the Exchequer will undershoot predictions for the 2017-18 deficit by around £10bn, pushing it nearer to £48bn than the official forecast of £58bn. So that’s OK then. Except it isn’t.
So taxes are likely to go up. But where? Stamp duty up – or down? Income tax thresholds up – or static? VAT registration thresholds – up? What about the burden of business rates, and the claim that cutting them could save the High Street? And of course there are all those promises during the election, like more help for housebuilding and tackling the alleged “inequalities” of self employment. Anything could happen.
Ian Bingham FCA (pic above) is our regular guru on these matters and we are extremely fortunate to be welcoming him again. This is always a well- attended meeting, so let me know if you are coming.
