Autumn Statement 2014 date announced, but what can we expect from it?

2 September 2014

The Chancellor has today announced that he will deliver the Autumn statement on 3 December, but what can we expect from the final Autumn statement ahead of next year’s general election?

Further details about the radical pension reforms to be introduced in April 2015 will undoubtedly be on the agenda and we will have to wait and see just how relaxed those new rules are.

HMRC’s powers to tackle tax avoidance have been enhanced significantly this year already so there is unlikely to be further changes in that area. However, we would expect announcements about how successful HMRC have been in collecting tax from aggressive schemes.

There continues to be an increasing number of consultations so we hope to hear further details about areas such as capital gains tax on property for non-UK residents and changes to the tax treatment of employee benefits and expenses.

We will provide our usual live commentary through social media on the day and produce our easy-to-digest summary of the main announcements to help you to understand how the changes made will affect you, your family and your business.
