The Chancellor’s Autumn Statement 2013

We’ve all had a few days to digest the contents of George Osborne’s Autumn Statement speech.  With new measures including a package to help all businesses in England with the cost of business rates, an additional 50,000 start-up loans for entrepreneurs, an extension to the new Enterprise Allowance, the scrapping of employers NIC for the under 21’s and the scrapping of next year’s planned rise in fuel duty, was it good news for SME’s?

Our summary, plus a reminder of other key changes which are to take place from April 2014, is available here.  If you would like advice on any of the topics raised, please do get in touch.
