*UKHotViewsExtra* Budget 2020: The implications for tech firms

Budget imageAgainst the backdrop of the global outbreak of COVID-19, and having been in role for just 28 days, the Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak delivered the Government’s Budget 2020, including what he described as, “the largest sustained fiscal boost in 30 years”.

In considering the implications for tech firms in the UK market, TechMarketView has published three research notes. The first two are available in UKHotViewsExtra (available for all subscribers including those signed up to UKHotViews Premium).

In Budget 2020: Business, Innovation & Productivity, we take a look at the announcements from two angles. Firstly, how will companies – large and small – benefit from the stimulus. Secondly, where are there clear areas where Sunak’s investment will drive spending in the tech sector.

In Budget 2020: Public Services Investment, we consider the impact of both short-term, COVID-19-related, response to public services investment, and the longer-term commitment to investing in our public services.

Finally, UKHotViews readers can tuck into Richard Holway’s views on the changes to Entrepreneur’s Relief – see Sunak slashes Entrepreneur’s Relief.
