This past year has been marked by ongoing efforts to recover from the economic impact of the global pandemic. Inflation has emerged as a significant concern, influenced by persistent disruptions in the supply chain and geopolitical tensions. To address these economic challenges, the Government has adjusted tax policies to balance revenue generation with support for businesses and individuals. The regulatory environment has experienced continuous flux, requiring businesses and individuals to be adaptable in order to stay compliant.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Jeremy Hunt, presented his 2023 Autumn Statement to Parliament on 22 November 2023, publishing the supporting documents, while the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) published updated forecasts for the UK’s economic and fiscal outlook.
