Autumn Budget 2018


The Chancellor, Philip Hammond, delivered the Autumn Budget yesterday, Monday 29 October 2018.

In his speech, Hammond declared that "austerity is coming to an end" and reinforced his declaration by bringing forward his promise to increase both the tax-free personal allowance and the higher rate tax threshold by 12 months. He also suggested that Britain would enjoy a "double deal dividend" should we manage to strike a Brexit deal, but hinted towards a second full Budget announcement in the Spring if the deal fails to materialise.

To help you understand how these updates will affect you, we have produced a summary of the main changes broken down into the areas that are most likely to be of interest to you, including personal, business, employment and capital taxes.

To help you decipher what was said, we have also included comments on the more important changes. As always, the devil will be in the detail.

We hope you find this budget summary useful but if you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us for advice.


Macmillian Coffee Morning 28th September



The Offices of Richard Edwards Group LLP again demonstrated their baking skills on Friday 28 September and hosted their fourth Macmillan Coffee Morning at the Halstead office.

Staff, Clients and Visitors enjoyed some wonderful home baked fayre and there was a take away option available for those who couldn't stay and enjoy the wonderful ambience of the morning.

Kind thanks must be afforded to all who donated cakes and savoury treats, gave raffle prizes and supported the practice.

We welcomed crowds of people during the morning and the generosity of all who attended was truly astounding. We have raised an astonishing £2,623 to date which will grow to a charitable contribution exceeding £3,000 once gift aid is applied. We are completely overwhelmed.

The practice is truly thrilled that such an amount can be forwarded to the charity and have vowed that we will try to raise more next year if that is even possible. Huge thanks to everyone who took the time to attend, and, to everyone who has kindly donated to this incredible charity.

Together we do make a Difference.
