UK Election 2019

The 2019 UK election saw the Conservative party achieve their best electoral performance in several decades, securing a considerable majority in Parliament which will pave the way to delivering commitments made in their manifesto.

One of the greatest benefits is considered the stability and consistency in policymaking that a single party with a significant majority and a five year team in government can now bring.

Whilst we wait to hear what will be in the Government’s next budget, which they have promised to deliver in their first 100 days of power and will be a “post-Brexit Budget”, many are asking the practical questions about how to look forward and plan in light of their manifesto promises. We can help you look forward and plan your tax affairs sensibly so that you are protected for whatever future developments occur.

This page also includes links to a number of articles and videos that we published during the lead up to the election.
