Budget - March 2013



The income tax free personal allowance rises quicker than previously planned - to £9,440 in 2013-14 with the plan for it to reach the coalition's goal of £10,000 the following year.

As previously announced the top tate of income tax of 50% for income above £150,000 reduced to 45% from 6th April 2013.

Also previously annouced were the reductions of the pension Lifetime Allowance from £1.5m to £1.25m and the pension Annual Allowance from £50,000 to £40,000. Both changes take effect from 2014-15 but individuals who might be affected must take advice before then. There are ways of protecting pension funds against the Lifetime Allowance and the Annual Allowance changes can hit pension contributions made from 6th April 2013 because of the way in which Pension Input Periods are calculated. Please call us if you are in any doubt about how this affects you.

Corporation tax lowered to 20% from 2015 does away with the need for a 'marginal' rate of tax for companies with profits above the small companies limit.

We will wait and see how the proposals to offer interest free loans to buyers of new build houses will affect the property market. Any short term boost might be followed by a slump when the loans become no longer available. The net effect might simply be to elongate the overall stagnation period of the market.
