Mini Budget!

The new Chancellor announced his mini budget early this morning. While new measures were introduced, several planned tax increases were cancelled.


  • Basic rate of tax reduced from 20% to 19% from April 2023.

  • There has been no increase in personal allowances or the level at which the 40% tax rate starts.

  • The 45% top rate of tax will be abolished from April 2023.

  • The NIC increase of 1.25% which started in April 2022 is cancelled as from 6 November and the Health & Social Care Levy which would replace it in April 2023 will no longer go ahead.

  • The level at which Stamp Duty starts increases from £125,000 to £250,000, and for 1st time buyers increases to £425,000.

  • IR35 reforms to be repealed.

  • Corporation Tax increase cancelled, so the rate for small businesses will remain at 19%.

  • Annual Investment Allowance reduction cancelled.

The cancelling of the NIC increase could lead to “savings” of up to £330.
