Finance bill amendments

In view of the impending election, the government has backed off from reducing the money purchase annual allowance (MPAA) from £10,000 to £4,000 from this April.

While this change was included in the government’s Finance (No 2) Bill 2017, in the latest government amendments this clause has been left out.

The clause, which would have cut the tax-free dividend allowance from £5,000 to £2,000 from April 2018, has also been left out.
