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.
