Ward Williams 2012 Budget Briefing – Available here

23rd March 2012

Our 2012 Budget Briefing outlines the key data in George Osbourne’s budget of 21 March

The Chancellor unveiled a range of measures that left no doubt that the ‘age of austerity’ is not yet over – although thanks to a steady stream of pre-Budget announcements and leaks, Mr Osbourne had little to offer in the way of surprises.

The Budget highlights included:

  • The personal allowance will be increased to £9,205 in 2013/14, but the higher rate threshold will be reduced by £1,025 to £41,450.
  • There will be a limit on the maximum amount of income tax reliefs that can be claimed from 2013/14.
  • As expected, from 2013/14 there will be a drop in the higher rate of income tax from 50% to 45%.
  • The so-called ‘mansion tax’ has taken the form of higher stamp duty on house sales over £2 million.
  • Child benefit is to be phased out where income is over £50,000.
