Spring Budget 2024 – 6 March Full Summary

Big Ben in Spring

7th March 2024

Chancellor Jeremy Hunt delivered his ‘Budget for Long Term Growth’ on Wednesday 6 March 2024. His speech promised “more investment, more jobs, better public services and lower taxes”.

Lowering taxes
The Chancellor made further changes to National Insurance contributions (NICs), following the cuts made in the Autumn Statement 2023. The rates for NICs will be cut further for both employees and the self-employed from 6 April 2024.

There was also a cut in the higher rate of Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on residential property disposals and the creation of a new Individual Savings Accounts (ISA) allowance to encourage investment in promising UK businesses.

The Chancellor has responded to pressure from business groups by raising the threshold for VAT registration to £90,000 and announcing his intention to extend full expensing to leased assets.

Making it possible
The Chancellor made his cuts possible with a series of tax-raising measures. These included a new regime for non-doms, the abolition of the furnished holiday lettings (FHL) tax regime and Multiple Dwellings Relief for Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), alongside a new duty on vaping and an increase in tobacco duty.
