Government backs entrepreneurs in latest Budget
Chancellor Philip Hammond, in his 2018 Budget speech, rejected calls to scrap entrepreneurs’ relief, stating that entrepreneurs must be at the heart of a ‘dynamic economy’ in a post-Brexit UK.
Entrepreneurs’ Relief means that you may be able to pay less Capital Gains Tax when you sell or dispose of all, or part, of your business. This move comes as part of the Government’s aim to ensure the UK is a leading global player within business and mergers & acquisitions.
This guarantee from the government will help to drive M&A activity in the UK, as both sellers and buyers realise the potential benefits associated with Entrepreneurs’ Relief.
