FREE Budget reports

  • Simple to understand
  • Quick to read
  • Easy to download

Most people, at one time or another, have sat in front of the TV listening to the chancellor’s budget speech and thought ‘What’s that all about?’ and ‘How does it affect me?’. So we decided that it might help if we took the information provided in the budget and created an easy-to-understand Plain English Budget Report each year.

The below guides give you a simple breakdown of exactly what was said and what it means for freelancer's and contractors who operate through their own limited companies, covering areas such as Business and Investment incentives, Personal Taxation and Savings, Capital Taxes and Duties, VAT, Tax Rates and Allowances, Car Taxation and so on. And of course, if you’re still unclear about any accountancy-related issues, feel free to get in touch and we’ll try to help.
