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.

Autumn Budget 2017

The Chancellor of the Exchequer delivered his Autumn 2017 Budget against a backdrop of no overall Government majority, party disunity, reducing UK productivity and a recent marked slowdown in economic growth. So not much room for manoeuvre and a need not to be seen to “get it wrong” as happened with the rapid U-turn on NIC changes for the self-employed in the March Budget this year.

Not for profit

Not For Profit organisations and charities, contrary to popular belief, are liable to tax but what they do benefit from some siginificant tax reliefs and tax exemptions. However, when activities are undertaken outside an organisation's charitable objectives, problems can arise, and professional advice is often needed.

Corporate Tax

The corporate tax team provides tax compliance and advisory services to many UK and international groups. Our team has an in depth understanding of the industries in which our clients operate and appreciate the issues currently affecting directors and shareholders.

We provide proactive advice, looking at tax issues from all angles.

Wealth Management

At Mazars Wealth Management we understand that your investment portfolio must be tailored to your needs. Whether you are targeting an income or long term capital growth, our investment solutions are designed to target the optimal return within your own tolerance to risk.

Tax investigations

Tax investigations can be stressful, costly and time consuming, and with the number of investigations on the rise, it pays to have the best advice.

Personal tax

Personal taxation has never been so complicated: increased legislation from HMRC and changing family circumstances such as marriage or divorce, planning for school or university fees, retirement and long term care, mean that staying on top of your financial affairs is more important than ever.

Global Mobility

Managing and motivating globally mobile employees isn’t always easy. Understanding and responding to tax requirements at home and abroad can be time consuming and complicated. In fact, research shows tax issues are a key factor in de-motivating employees working abroad.

Trusts and estates

At Mazars we want to help protect our clients from unexpected tax bills and assist in passing on your assets in a tax efficient manner.

R&D Tax Incentives

The UK government has, in the last decade, introduced significant tax incentives to encourage companies to invest in R&D activities, creating valuable IP and providing skilled jobs. The two main regimes are R&D tax credits and the more recent Patent Box.
