Spring Statement 2018 predictions: the detail will all be in the fine print

This year’s Spring Statement scheduled for 13 March is predicted to be a short speech from Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond. The main topic is expected to be a response to the economic and fiscal forecasts from the Office of Budget Responsibility (OBR), since it has been announced that there will now only be one fiscal event a year (at the Autumn Budget). However, as the Spring Statement will be used to launch consultations on proposed tax changes, there will be plenty of detail on taxes in the fine print.
