Budget 2015 – Chancellor Announces Tax-Free Personal Allowance Increase

Budget 2015 – Chancellor Announces Tax-Free Personal Allowance Increase

Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne announced last week that the rate of tax-free personal allowance is set to rise to £10,600 in 2015/16, £10,800 in 2016/17 and £11,000 in 2017/18. This is welcome news to millions of UK taxpayers, guaranteeing more tax-free – and hopefully – more disposable income.

How changes to personal allowance affect you

According to HMRC’s own website, these new measures are designed “to make work pay and ensure families keep more of the money they earn”. I’m sure most of us will agree that once all deductions and bills have been paid, there isn’t a great deal left of one’s pay packet at the end of the month, so any increase to the amount we can earn before we start paying tax can only be good news.

Handyman Never Paid Taxes In 20 Years… 3 Years In Prison!

Handyman Never Paid Taxes In 20 Years… 3 Years In Prison!

Unbelievable! HMRC’s press office named and shamed a Norfolk handyman who was sentenced today to 3 years in prison for not declaring his self employed income during a career spanning over 20 years. HMRC estimated that Richard Green, who never registered as self employed or paid any tax or National Insurance, cheated the public coffers off nearly £170,000.
