Budget News 2012

After much hype in recent weeks, the Chancellor finally made his 2012 Budget speech.
Much of what was said had been predicted, and there certainly wasn't a 'rabbit out of the hat' moment.
The key announcements included:
  • Reductions in the main rate of corporation tax from 26% to 24% from April 2012 , 23% from April 2013, and 22% from April 2014. 

  • An increase in the personal allowance to £9,205 from April 2013.

  • A reduction in the additional rate of tax from 50% to 45% from April 2013. 

For a brief summary of the speech, as it happened, please see our Budget highlights.
