In our second episode of season 2, host Mark Smith welcomes guests, David Collins, Senior Tax Adviser & Amelia Benns, Trainee Tax Adviser from Scrutton Bland.

Looking back the 2023 Autumn Statement seemed more of a ‘budget’ than the one that was delivered by the Chancellor on 6 March. In this episode, Mark explores the highlights from the Spring Budget, the different generational viewpoints and how the announcements are impacting real people in the real world.

  • Capital Gains Tax Reduction
  • National Insurance Reductions
  • Multiple Dwellings Relief
