Restarting the UK economy and paying the Coronavirus bill

Posted by , , , on

The UK Chancellor has delayed announcing a major economic stimulus package of tax cuts and spending pledges until the autumn – presumably in the hope that he will have a clearer picture by then of how quickly the UK economy will recover from the impact of coronavirus, and that, if the economy has recovered a little, taxpayers will be more willing to accept future tax rises. Short-term measures to encourage consumer spending now that the majority of shops are allowed to re-open – like a temporary reduction in VAT – could still be announced sooner. But what measures could be introduced in the longer-term to pay the coronavirus bill?

For a discussion on the measures which could form part of the recovery package and help pay the bill see our guide to Restarting the UK economy and paying the coronavirus bill.
