Philip Hammond presented his Spring Statement on Wednesday 13 March 2019. So, what exactly did the Chancellor say and, more importantly, what did it actually mean?

A summary of this year's Spring Statement is now available on our website at here.

The Chancellor responded to the Office for Budget Responsibility's economic forecasts, as well as reaffirming the fundamental taxation changes which will affect businesses and individuals in the new tax year. We have included informative comments to help you assess the likely effect that the proposed changes may have on you personally and their significance.
