Autumn Statement 2022 - A Plan for Stability?
Thursday 17th November 2022 saw the 'new' chancellor, Jeremy Hunt, deliver the Autumn Statement nearly 8 weeks since the now infamous 'mini Budget' delivered by Kwasi Kwarteng, the then Chancellor of the Exchequer on 23 September 2022.
Some Key Points:
- Tax allowances have been frozen until 2028
- Top rate tax threshold lowered*
- Dividend allowance cut over two years
- The National Insurance Contributions threshold is frozen
- Employment allowance for companies is staying at £5,000
- VAT threshold will continue at £85,000 up to 2026
*This does not, of course, apply up here in Scotland and we shall have to wait until next month to hear what happens in the Scottish parliament, exciting times!
