Podcast: Real world implications of the Budget

What does the Budget mean for us?

On 29 October Philip Hammond, or Fiscal Phil as he called himself, announced his 2018 Budget. He spoke about everything under the sun, from plastics and alcohol tax, to the NHS and education, to local council allowances and fuel.

But what does it all actually mean for us?

Accountancy Age are launching their new podcast series, AAnswers, and kicking off with a discussion on the real world implications of the Budget now the dust has had a chance to settle. We’ll be unpicking Hammond’s announcements and talking about what they actually mean for you and me.

So join the Accountancy Age editorial team to hear us discuss some of the big themes of the Budget and how they will impact the accounting industry.

Our podcast will launch on Friday 16 November so sign up now to receive it straight to your inbox.
