2016 Budget Summary

Yesterday, George Osborne delivered what we consider to be a positive 2016 Budget.

As anticipated, he decided to drop (or postpone) any plans to amend the higher rate pensions tax relief. Instead the Budget included a surprise reduction in the capital gains tax rate to 20%, other than for residential property (other than ‘main homes’) and carried interest gains which will continue to be taxed at 28% .
