Budget reaction from Benson Hersch, Association of Short Term Lenders - on the OBR forecast and debt
Thursday, 09 March 2017
Benson Hersch, CEO at the Association of Short Term Lenders, says “The biggest risk the UK faces is the level of both personal and government borrowing. It is this that jeopardises both the level of housing investment and our ability to withstand any shocks that the Brexit process may bring.  Only a few years ago the previous Chancellor said government borrowing would peak at what sounded like the horrendous amount of 80% of GDP; in the budget today Philip Hammond declared that will now reach 88% of GDP in the 2018/19 financial year.  Each year we spend £50billion on debt interest.   That's more than on defence or foreign aid.

Paul Kaye, Close Brothers Motor Finance comments on business rates measures
Thursday, 09 March 2017
Paul Kaye, Sales and Marketing Director at Close Brothers Motor Finance, comments on the business rates measures announced in the Spring Budget: “We welcome the Chancellor’s announcement of a consultation on business rates, as well as £300m fund for local councils to offer discretionary relief. However, as it stands there are car dealers across the country still expecting to foot the bill of an average 16% increase, which could have a serious impact on their bottom line. The rate hike comes at a time when a higher national living wage and pension auto-enrolment have already significantly reduced the profitability of some dealers. 
Budget 2017: Bankruptcy impact of new anti-avoidance tools needs considering by government – R3
Thursday, 09 March 2017
With £820m of new anti-tax avoidance measures announced in today’s Budget, Andrew Tate, president of insolvency and restructuring trade body R3, says:  “The government needs to think more carefully about the impact its anti-tax avoidance tools have on those individuals affected. Tackling the abuse of the tax system is needed, but efforts to do so should not tar everyone with the same brush, while inflexibility can have disproportionate or unproductive outcomes. Attention should be given to how people can pay new tax demands, especially if their ‘avoidance’ is the result of a simple mistake, naivety, or poor advice.”
Spring Budget - SMEs affected by business rates revaluation
Thursday, 09 March 2017
Aamar Aslam, CEO of Funding Invoice, the invoice trading platform, comments on the changes in business rates, as outlined in the Spring Budget 2017:   “The Chancellor announced today that business rates revaluation will take effect from April 2017 across England, along with a planned discretionary fund of £300m for local authorities to support businesses hard-hit by business rates, which will undoubtedly be welcome news for businesses across the country facing closure as a result of these revaluations.
