Spring Budget 2023

Chancellor Jeremy Hunt presented the Spring Budget, with a focus on stimulating the economy while balancing economic and political concern. Some tax rate changes were announced by the Chancellor. However, he had to ensure a balance between longer-term economic goals and current concerns about inflation and cost of living.

Some important tax changes to keep in consideration for 2023/24 are:

  • Most main tax allowances and reliefs remain unchanged. However, the threshold for additional rate taxpayers is reduced to £125,140.
  • Annual allowance for pensions will increase by 50% to £60,000. Plus, the money purchase annual allowance will rise from £4,000 to £10,000.
  • The capital gains tax exempt amount is reduced from £12,300 to £6,000 for 2023/24.
  • The corporation tax increase announced by Rishi Sunak when he served as the Chancellor pushes the rate to 25%.
  • The pensions lifetime allowance is set to be abolished from April 2024, after the lifetime allowance charge is removed from April 2023.
  • The dividend allowance is cut from £2,000 to £1,000 for 2023/24.
  • Companies investing in new plant and machinery in the three years from 1 April 2023 can claim a first-year allowance of up to 100% of expenditure.
  • For Scottish taxpayers, the higher and top rates of tax increase by 1% to 42% and 47%, respectively.
