Autumn Budget November 2017

Created by

Chancellor Philip Hammond has delivered his first Autumn Budget under the new system he announced this time last year. The aim of the new system is for the Finance Bill, which is normally published after the annual Budget, to reach Royal Assent stage in the spring of each year, before the start of the following tax year. This change in the annual timetable is designed to help Parliament to scrutinise tax changes before the tax year where most take effect. The Finance Bill should be published on 1 December 2017. By the end of March 2018, the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) will publish an updated economic and fiscal forecast, which the Chancellor will respond to in a Spring Statement. The Spring Statement will also be a chance to publish consultations, including early-stage calls for evidence and consultations on long-term tax policy issues.
