Budget 2015: a short review.

Making the headlines are the range of measures that came thick and fast towards the end of George Osborne’s speech, such as a further increase in the personal tax free allowance to £11,000, a new fully-flexible ISA and the new first-time buyer bonus.

There was mixed news for pensions however. The announcement from the chancellor of a reduction in lifetime allowance from £1.25m to £1m on pensions looks to me to be a risky way of dealing with long-term investment.

It seems like the government moves the goalposts every year despite repeated warnings from ACCA and others that meddling with the pension pots of those who have been contributing to them for 30 to 40 years could have a hugely destabilising effect.

On a more positive note, Osborne continued with the policy of greater flexibility for pensions by allowing the sale of annuities. The big challenge for the chancellor is to create a fair market for these sales. What the chancellor didn’t make crystal clear was the tax implications of withdrawing a lump sum. There is the potential for a large number of people to get quite a shock when they find out they will have tax to pay on their money should they wish to get their hands on it.

So close to the election it is unsurprising to see a Budget weighted towards personal finance, but there were a few new developments for businesses. However many of those filing paper self-assessment forms are self-employed people and those running small businesses which have been using the postal method for many years. They need to be given access to resources which help them move the process online to ensure they aren’t left behind.
