What was there for start-ups in Budget 2017? Alex Mitchell, Jamie Kerr, and three awesome IoD 99-ers dig down into what Philip Hammond’s announcements mean for start-ups and tech businesses.
The verdict from the IoD: The Chancellor may have dipped his toe in the water, but he didn’t make a splash.
Start-ups have a lot on their plates at the moment, and the Chancellor had a lot of work to do to help boost confidence and investment. While some sectors - particularly tech and knowledge intensive businesses - will be pleased by the tone set by some of the announcements, many will also feel that the Treasury could have gone further.
