Chancellor George Osborne’s fifth Budget statement was delivered today at 12.30pm. The Chancellor’s message was that although the economy is more resilient and the recovery is much better and faster than forecasted, it does remain fragile and so he still has some tough decisions to make which will affect us all.
He is keen however to reward those of us who work hard and want to get on and he wants to support the UK’s businesses to encourage growth and aspiration.
If you are a maker, doer or saver then this was a Budget for you!
So what were the key announcements from today’s Budget?
