    Major dividend tax and pension cuts suspendedů for now.

    The government has suspended major changes to dividend tax and pensions ahead of the snap general election

    The changes were supposed to be implemented in the 2017 Finance Bill, but have been shelved so the new legislation can be pushed through before parliament dissolves.

    Whether the changes are re-introduced after the election depends on who wins the election, and what the main parties commit to in their manifestos, which are likely to be published in early-May.

    Read more on this from Which? HERE




    Am I imagining this, or have they done this so that any such action just now might lessen the government's chances of being re-elected in June.

    If the Tories get re-elected this is going to come back to haunt us soon afterwards.

    May doesn't want to upset the political apple-cart just before she goes to another general election.

    Yeah, she is one shrewd cookie.

    Looking at the local election results today it seems that Mrs May is going to get her wish in June.
