The team and I are poised to bring you all the latest news as it happens. As you might have already noticed, our Budget coverage is already well under way. There are plenty of predictions and lots of early analysis from experts working across the profession as they share their views on what might be in Jeremy Hunt’s Red Box come 12.30 today. Will there be any ‘rabbits out of the hat’ moments? Will he tweak tax on holiday lets? What about Non-Doms? Or SDLT? All of these are under the microscope.
