A few surprises among tax measures in the Chancellor’s post-election budget
In June the Chancellor gave us his post-election budget and announced a few surprises. I was, however, expecting a more radical package of measures, plus some serious shocks which had been kept hidden during the election campaign. What we got seems to be a thoughtful series of tax proposals, some targeting specific areas of perceived avoidance, others correcting areas of perceived unfairness and still more targeting tax mitigation tactics in use by businesses.
