    Hi Dean

    Thank you for this,

    I did hear that lobbying had been successful and that the proposed rate of 18% had been reduced to 10%, but have had no time to look much further.

    A little light reading for this evening eh:001_rolleyes:

    Certainly better news for the smaller businesses which make up the backbone of the UK and those who are in higher tax rates - though (as is always the case in pre-budget reports) there are always the losers! I did hear that the chancellor had made a "u turn" though I wouldn't necessarily class his revised proposals as quite that!!

    Hopefully Alastair Darling has learnt a valuable lesson in his role in that major overhauls of certain areas of the tax system cannot happen overnight and consultation with business groups should be a lesson valuably learnt.

    We'll see!
