Whatever happens in the Budget in a fortnight's time, plenty of tax and benefit changes are already set to be implemented in April. Tick them off as they arrive...
National Insurance. Employees pay 12%, an extra 1%.
Threshold for 40% tax. Reduced from £43,875 to £42,475, dragging 750,000 onto the higher rate.
Duty on alcohol. Up by inflation plus 2%. Possible 5p on a pint.
Tax credits. Faster reduction as earnings rise.
Benefits and tax credits increased by CPI not the higher RPI.
Baby element of Child Tax Credit, worth £545, is removed.
£500 Sure Start maternity grant restricted to one child.
5% stamp duty on £1m homes.
Inheritance tax threshold frozen at £325,000.
Child benefit rates frozen.
Fuel duty, the one to watch in the Budget.
Rise of inflation +1% is pencilled in. But expect some or all of it to be postponed.
