A new government: A new tax regime?

Following the new government’s first budget on 11 March, we will share our views of its implications for private client taxation, and discuss what the headlines will actually mean in practice

 **Please note, due to the developing situation around COVID-19, and the approach of the UK government, we have decided to postpone this seminar until further notice. Please join our mailing list here to be the first to receive updates on these seminars.

We are pleased to announce the details of our next Private Wealth seminar, which will be held at our London office on Wednesday 18 March.

One week after the new government’s first budget, we will take a considered view of its implications for private client taxation, and discuss what the headlines will actually mean in practice. How much of the Conservative’s election manifesto will be implemented – will we see a business-friendly budget, or one that gives a nod to the priorities of newly-won constituencies in the Midlands and North?

The Budget will no doubt have the usual surprises, but we anticipate that there may be proposed changes to:

  • Entrepreneurs relief for CGT purposes – restrictions, abolition or further consultation?
  • Inheritance Tax – how will the Government respond to the Office of Tax Simplication’s radical proposals, particularly on business and agricultural reliefs?
  • Pensions taxation for higher earners
  • VAT, State Aid and Free Movement of Capital constraints – will these be lifted as we leave the European Union?
