Following the Chancellor’s Budget last Wednesday, it was confirmed that the government will be “clamping down on agencies who abuse tax relief on travel and subsistence”.
Another year, another Budget. With just 50 days to the next general election, and potentially the last one to be delivered by the current government, this was always going to be a Budget that would be much anticipated.
Chancellor George Osborne began his Budget statement yesterday with the words “Britain is walking tall again”.
Some think that there is no room for headline grabbing measures to be announced by the Chancellor next week; others see this as a perfect opportunity to launch a few political fireworks ahead of the election race really getting underway.
