More people to pay top rate of income tax

The Chancellor says the threshold for when the highest earners start paying the top rate of tax will be brought down from £150,000 to £125,140 and this is effective from April 2023.

“Those earning £150,000 or more will pay just over £1,200 more a year”

The government says about 660,000 people pay the 45% rate of income tax.

It is often said that there is a fine line between genius and madness. Never before in my working lifetime have I considered that comparison to be more appropriate to UK fiscal policy
Having just sat through the so called Mini Budget I can summarise my reaction by a mixture of shock and fear – fear for the future of the UK if the Government’s tax gamble doesn’t pay off, shock in that I have never seen such a dramatic change of direction before

Video – Dafferns’ review of the March 2022 Spring Statement

Martin Gibbs, Brian Jukes and Paige Easterlow give their take on a budget for the post Covid Britain, going it alone outside the EU.
With two Budgets and a whole load of leaked tax changes in 2021, the March 2022 one was always going to be relatively low key.
A change to employees NIC from July 2022, a reduction in the basis rate of income tax in 2024 and a modest reduction on fuel duty, will this be enough to combat soaring inflation?

With the ongoing global pandemic, climate change, the switch to electric cars, rising labour costs, supply shortages on the domestic and business fronts, the semi-conductor shortage, fuel and power costs going through the roof, on-going Brexit fallout and pressures on interest rates, it will be a difficult balancing act.
