Budget 2010 - Chancellor’s statement announced for Wednesday 24 March 2010

So at last we have a date for this year's Budget - 24 March 2010. But will it be worth the wait? With Easter at the beginning of April, and a general election to follow shortly after, there is little prospect of any serious measures being enacted before a new government takes power. It seems likely therefore that the Finance Bill will contain only the basic measures required to keep the tax collection system in motion for 2010/11, and a few previously announced technical changes that need no more debate. The real, more 'interesting', budget will surely be the one in June or July this year.

We will be blogging on Tax Plus Blog and SME Plus Blog on Budget day. If you do not already subscribe to our blogs click here for Tax Plus Blog or here for SME Plus Blog to ensure you get our comment and analysis as and when it happens.
