The Autumn Statement arrives next week and the rumour mill has gone into overdrive.
The idea of it being a simple update on the economy seems to have been abandoned and instead there is talk of an Isa overhaul, tax changes, and even inheritance tax being cut from 40 per cent to 20 per cent.
But if you were Chancellor for the day, what would you do?
On this week’s podcast, Georgie Frost, Lee Boyce and Simon Lambert look at what could be on the cards as Jeremy Hunt stands up and delivers his Autumn Statement next week.
On the agenda:
- Stealth tax – will the income tax freeze end?
- Inheritance tax – will the rate be cut to 20%?
- Isas – will the allowance be boosted and the system improved?
- Savings – could the personal savings allowance get a rise?
