UK Autumn Budget 2021 – Key Tax Measures

October 28, 2021

The Chancellor of the Exchequer delivered the United Kingdom (“UK”) Autumn Budget for 2021 on 27 October 2021.

The Budget was delivered against the backdrop of the UK’s ongoing recovery from the Covid‑19 pandemic and the evolving relationship between the UK and the rest of the world following Brexit.  As with many previous Budgets, eye-catching pieces of good news sit alongside anti-avoidance proposals which –  while targeted – cast a slightly cold shadow over the more hopeful items.  The same is true in the Autumn Budget 2021, where the positive and potentially game-changing introduction of the new Qualifying Asset Holding Companies regime and helpful changes to the stamp duty treatment of UK securitisation companies are lined up with further measures to be applied to the “willing associates and collaborators” of any offshore promoter of tax avoidance.
