It was hailed as a Budget for “Makers, Doers and Savers” by the Chancellor so now that the dust has settled a bit, what does it mean for Family Businesses?


Here are some key points for Family Businesses announced in the Budget:


  • Doubling of the Annual Investment Allowance to £500,000
  • Increase in the rate of R&D tax relief for loss making SMEs to 14.5%
  • A package aimed at cutting energy bills for British manufacturers
  • Fuel duty rise planned for September will not happen
  • Enhanced export finance package to help target overseas markets
  • Increase in personal tax allowance to £10,500 from April 2015
  • Cash and shares ISA to be merged into single ISA
