With the UK continuing to make its way out of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Autumn Budget was more an announcement of spending intentions. There were no major changes to the tax and business landscape that were not already known, with the announcement in September 2021 of a 1.25% increase in dividend tax and National Insurance contributions from 1 April 2022 being confirmed. Capital gains tax (CGT) again remained unchanged, with the exception of the reporting deadline being extended from 30 to 60 days for individuals who have a CGT liability when disposing of UK residential property.
Throughout the guide you will find informative comments to help you assess the effect that the proposed changes may have on you personally, as well as a handy 2021/22 Tax Calendar and Tax Rates summary for 2021/22 and 2022/23.
