COVID-19 will cause temporary disruptions to the economy having a significant impact, but the Chancellor reassured that this would be temporary and the economy will recover. A 3 point plan is being implemented to help provide security and support for those off work including changes to Statutory Sick Pay (SSP).

A Budget that 'gets it done', as the Chancellor mentioned over a dozen times. With spending for the NHS, housing and research & development, it was certainly less of an austerity Budget that we'd become accustomed to. Rishi Sunak's first Budget after being in the job for a month was to lead the UK to being 'brave & bold, taking decisions now for our future prosperity'. 


There is predicted to be a temporary interruption to the economy. However, the budget offers help in several ways from sick pay fully recoverable from HMRC to loans and increases in R&D relief, which the Chancellor believes this will give the necessary support needed to small businesses during the disruption. Overall, a positive budget for small businesses.
