Invitation: Property Budget Update

Will ‘Hard’ Brexit mean a ‘Hard’ Budget?

The Chancellor will present the Spring Budget on Wednesday 8 March. With recent optimism following the Prime Minister’s speech on her party’s Brexit strategy, should we expect a Budget which is going to prepare the country for the storm ahead?

In his Autumn Statement in October, Mr Hammond was keen to herald and encourage a fast-growing, high employment economy. He included a plan to cut Corporation Tax to 17% by 2020 and a simplification of the Substantial Shareholding Exemption to help make the UK an attractive place to do business. Will we see further changes that will pave the way for a UK which is ‘open for business’?

What will this mean for the Property Sector?

The sector has been lobbying hard for a reduction of SDLT on residential property, which has been cited as a major factor in the slowdown of the top end of the London market? What impact will the budget have on this? Will there be any developments? Will we get further guidance on the impact of the changes to the Entrepreneur Relief rules for developers and traders?

We are presenting an easy to digest summary of the Spring Budget announcements on 9 March with a particular focus on their impact on the property sector so you don’t spend time trawling the news to find out what matters to you!  You can ask our experts questions during the seminar or if you prefer, afterwards during our networking session.
