Budget commentary 2008

As you know, Alistair Darling our new Chancellor delivered his first Budget on 12 March 2008. Hidden in the notes and supplementary documents that accompany the Budget were changes that affect financial planning.

As in previous years, Scottish Life has produced a Budget commentary detailing these changes to help you understand what they are, and how they may affect your clients. Our commentary is packed full of useful information on everything from the key tax rate changes to a whole host of financial planning opportunities that you can use with your clients. (Please note, for licensing reasons, you will need to log in to our website to view this document.)
