We set out the key points from the Chancellor’s latest Autumn Statement and Spending Review, together with full detail and analysis in our Autumn Statement document.

Key points:

  • The planned tax credit cuts have been abandoned following wide criticism and rejection by the House of Lords.
  • Spending cuts are to continue, however, policing, health, education, international aid and defence budgets will be protected.
  • The NHS is to receive a cash injection of £6billion next year.
  • Social care “precept” of up to 2% in Council Tax to be used to fund social care.
  • Basic state pension to increase to £119.30 per week next year and the full rate for the new state pension for those claiming it from April 2016 will be £155.65.
  • A 3% surcharge on stamp duty for buy-to-let and second homes is to be introduced from April 2016.
  • In the absence of inflation, the ISA annual allowance is to remain at the current level of £15,240.
  • The dates for contribution rate increases under auto-enrolment pension schemes are to be pushed back 6 months to align them with tax years.
