In this special edition of the Insights podcast, we’re joined by experts from across ICAEW’s tax and public sector team to preview the government’s Autumn Budget and Spending Review 2021.
Normally one of the biggest financial events of the year in its own right, this Budget has assumed even greater significance, being the first since the easing of lockdown measures and the tapering down of a number of key Covid support schemes, and also because the same day will see the first three-year government Spending Review in six years.
Will Rishi Sunak produce any tax rabbits from his hat, or has the biggest policy announcement already come in the form of the new Health and Social Care Levy? How much headroom does the Chancellor have to act? And what of longstanding issues such as Brexit, Making Tax Digital and the net zero agenda?
