Pre-Budget Report 2009 - Tories set date for next year’s (second) Budget
Even before the Chancellor’s Pre-Budget Report 2009 on 9 December the Conservative Party has indicated that they will have an 'emergency' Budget within fifty days of winning the general election next year.
Highlights of their proposals are:
- a reduction in corporation tax to 25% (20% small companies)
- increasing the stamp duty land tax threshold to £250,000
- raising the transferable IHT nil rate band to £1million
- a simple annual levy on all non-domiciles who want to avoid paying tax on their offshore income, in return for a promise not to change their tax regime for a Parliament.
It remains to be seen whether the Pre-Budget Report picks up on any of these ideas.
