Greg Limb, tax partner at KPMG, said: “After several years of seeing any gain through the personal tax allowance rising being cancelled out by a drop in the amount at which the 40% rate kicks in, now at last most higher rate tax payers will see a reduction in their income tax liability, of around £180. Whilst a relatively modest amount in the scheme of things, I am sure it is something that individuals will welcome.”
