Budget 2016: What small business owners think


"The Budget has been good for small businesses and the self employed. From a tax allowance for the sharing economy to reductions in Corporation Tax, this is great news and will go some way to off set the new dividend tax reforms that come into effect in April. But the best news of all is the permanent reduction in business rates, which will offer a big boost to the increasing number of independent retailers and producers we see every day looking for a foothold on our high streets.

"The fact that the booming number of self-employed will be able to save tax efficiently for their future through the Lifetime ISA will also go some way towards helping to redress the balance and shows an acceptance that this trend towards working for yourself is not going away and is in fact helping to boost employment rates."
