Our summary of the Budget March 2011

March 24th, 2011

Here is our summary of the main points of the Budget held yesterday, 23rd March 2011. The main point I think the Government is missing is that small businesses need as much help as possible at the moment. Banks are more reluctant to lend to them and they are really being squeezed.

Budget Summary March 2011 (1405)

The rise in National Insurance is still going ahead and whilst the corporation tax rate from 1 April 2011 fell to 20% from 21%, the rate for larger businesses has gone down by 2% with a further 1% decrease each year until it reaches 23%. It seems that the Government put supporting larger businesses at the forefront and don’t consider what a boost it would be for the economy to give small businesses a real shot in the arm.
