Measures extended

Measures extended

“Areas of the economy still need support and it would seem sensible for a continuation of current measures, rather than brand new schemes – particularly when it looks likely that they will only be guaranteed to run until 30 June. So I would expect a continuation of furlough, grant support and loans to businesses, keep the lower rate of VAT on hospitality businesses, some cashflow measures to support slower payment of tax, universal credit increase of £20/week to continue, business rates holiday and maybe extend the SDLT holiday too. I think the November budget will be more significant for tax measures than this one.”
