Spring Statement 2022
On the 23rd March, Chancellor Rishi Sunak delivered his ‘Spring Statement’.
His speech lasted 25 minutes and was a robust affair with heckling and cheers across the chamber- but on closer examination of the rhetoric and the details that have been released, the overall impression is that the Chancellor has given little.
The most significant measure was the drop in income tax, however this is only due to take effect next year and will be more than offset by the increase in the NIC rate for those earning over the NIC threshold.
For business there was scant relief for the significant pressures that they will be facing in the coming weeks and months.
