Analysis of issues affecting businesses across the globe.
In his first (and last) Autumn Statement, Chancellor Philip Hammond found himself ‘between a rock and a hard place’, in that the Government deficit is projected to rise by £20 billion a year by the end of this Parliament, while he is tasked with delivering on the Prime Minister’s central political theme of an “economy that works for everybody”. To this end, Hammond’s statement today was light on ‘give-aways’, but focused primarily on targeted interventions.
Cicero Group is delighted to publish our analysis of this year’s Autumn Statement. This latest overview reviews the Chancellor’s most recent policy announcements, as well as specifically considering the picture for business, Labour reaction, and the focus on FinTech.
