Spring Budget 2023

16 March 2023

Here are some of the highlights which may affect you:


  • The Lifetime Allowance (the total amount of money you are allowed to have in your pension without having additional tax charges – which is currently just over £1m) the charge is being removed from 6 April 2023
  • However, the maximum amount of tax free cash you can take will be 25% of your fund value or the current LTA (whichever is the lower), so maximum is frozen at £268,275
  • The Annual Allowance (the maximum total contribution that can be paid in during the year) will be increased from £40,000 to £60,000 from 6 April 2023
  • Also, the Money Purchase Annual Allowance (potentially applicable if you’ve started taking pension income from a defined contribution pension) will be increased from £4,000 to £10,000

Changes for business

  • The main rate of corporation tax, paid by businesses with taxable profits over £250,000, is confirmed to increase from 19% to 25%
  • Reduced paperwork for international traders, who will also be given longer to submit customs forms under streamlined rules
  • Apprenticeships for over 50s to attract a wealth of talent and ability back into the workplace
  • Enhanced Credit for R&D of £27 for every £100 spent


  • And the last good news for today is the outlook for inflation. It is expected to be 2.9% by the end of 2023 compared to 10.1% at present.
