Subscribe to our podcast via: Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Amazon MusicSpotify

As if Brexit and Covid weren’t enough, businesses have now had a Budget to deal with. In this episode of the Essex Business Podcast, we talk to people within the business community about how they feel it will affect them, and get an overview of the tax implications.


Tej Parikh, Chief Economist at the Institute of Directors reflects on how the Chancellor’s Spring Budget could affect the economy, and Rickard Luckin’s head of Tax and Financial Planning, Jamie Nice, gives an overview of the key policy announcements and their implications for corporate and personal taxation.


We also hear from four businesses owners in the county about how the budget will impact on them.
