Tax win – early allowance

Chancellor Philip Hammond announced in the Budget that planned rises in the personal tax allowance threshold and a higher rate of income tax will come into effect in April 2019 – 12 months earlier than previously expected. The personal allowance limit will increase from the current £11,850 to £12,500, while the higher-rate threshold will move from £46,350 to £50,000.
