Director of The Entrepreneur's Network Philip Salter gave his budget round-up in Forbes, focusing specifically on what this year's budget means for entrepreneurs.
Chancellor George is a prudent man. Despite the UK’s buoyant economy and the upcoming election, today’s Budget wasn’t the spending splurge that many were expecting. As the Adam Smith Institute’s Sam Bowman quipped: “Osborne fiddles while the economy booms”.
Of course, what the Chancellor actually announces in the House of Commons is just the tip of the iceberg. The devil is in the 124-page document. And the one thing that stands out from this is the relentless focus upon policies to try to support Britain’s entrepreneurs. This is a government fixated upon innovation and growth.
