So, the chancellor has given his final Budget report before the next General Election.
In summary the key highlights are:
The Chancellor confirmed that, from 6 April 2011, individuals with gross incomes of £150,000 or more will have their tax relief restricted.
From April 2011, those aged over 75 will pay no tax on anything under £10,000 and the Chancellor said that no pensioner would live on less than £132.60 a week.
Tax and Investment
As previously announced, the annual ISA limit will be raised from £7,200 to £10,200 next month. The annual ISA limit will increase in line with inflation from 2011.
The Inheritance tax threshold, which was frozen at £325,000 in the December 2009 Pre budget report until 2011, is now frozen for a further four years.
