New Budget timetable and Spring Statement date confirmed

8 January 2018

HM Treasury has confirmed that the Spring Statement will take place on Tuesday 13 March 2018.

In 2016’s Autumn Statement, the Chancellor announced that in future there will be a single fiscal event each year – the annual Budget statement, which will be delivered in the autumn. The 2017 Autumn Budget was the first Budget in this new cycle. From Spring 2018, an annual Spring Statement will accompany an updated economic and fiscal forecast from the Office for Budget Responsibility. The Chancellor has said that he will not make significant tax or spending announcements at the Spring Statement, unless the economic circumstances require it.

HM Treasury has published a policy document setting out a summary of the timetable and process that the government will use for tax policy making and consultation following the move to a single annual fiscal event.
