What are the outcomes from the Autumn Budget?

As promised at the end of 2017, we are covering the outcome of the Autumn Budget, including changes affecting corporate capital gains and stamp duty for first-time buyers. We also explore some key employment issues as a result of recent cases and high-profile news stories. Employers, unless they are properly informed and prepared, could be exposed to large risks.

Our feature this edition is Company car costs to increase with new emissions charges. Benefit-in-kind taxes were paid on 960,000 company cars in 2015/16, which means lots of companies will be affected. Our other stories include:
