    I think, John, that it'll be on off payroll. Possible extension to private companies.

    reduced Dividend tax-free band - but no increase in Div tax rate - even though self-employed NIC goes to 11% - that makes no sense - the benefits of incorporation will rise because of the 11% - 7.5% difference

    Hammond reminds me of John Major when he made his first budget speech.

    The drop in CT rate helps too.

    They obviously feel they did not go far enough last year with the new dividend tax. I think it is just more bad news for small business owners who are just trying to run their businesses without living in an uncertain economy whereby they have to put an increased ever-changing amount aside for tax each year.

    What is very clear, having listened to Corbyn, is the stalls set out for 2020.
    The next 3 years are possibly going to be the most exciting, politically, for a long time. Trump eat your heart out.
