Autumn Statement update from Saunderson House

With a general election set for 7 May 2015, but the budget deficit still stubbornly high, Chancellor George Osborne’s ability to sweeten the electorate with tax cuts and other giveaways in the Autumn Statement (3 December 2014) was limited. However, the Chancellor did announce major changes to both Stamp Duty and ISAs, which we have summarised in our final Pointers Newsletter of the year.

The main focus of this Newsletter though is the game-changing pension changes proposed earlier this year (and unchanged by the Autumn Statement), which are currently before Parliament and scheduled to come into effect from 6 April 2015, and a detailed look at the main impacts of these on individuals young and old.

The requirement for solicitors to behave ethically in modern legal practice is more relevant than ever. Solicitors are still held in fairly high regard by the public, although that esteem is on the wane according to last year’s Trusted Professions poll by Ipsos Mori. Lawyers are less trusted than teachers and doctors but at least we prevail over accountants and bankers. We still hold a position of trust but we must work to hold that position. The current Solicitors Regulation Authority proposals to revise the Handbook are evidence that work still needs to be done.
