Little in the way of digital stimulus

Nic Fildes, the FT's telecoms correspondent, observes that for all the talk of the need to boost the UK's prowess in the emerging digital world, the Budget contained little to move the needle. The chancellor put aside £16m for a "cutting edge" research facility for 5G mobile technology. That will be welcomed by the mobile industry but comes against a backdrop of the US and Chinese governments devoting hundreds of millions of dollars to take a leading role in 5G when it emerges.

There was also a £200m pledge to help roll out more "full fibre" projects in rural areas. An Akamai study published ahead of the Budget showed the UK was only 9th in the European rankings for average connection speeds with only 57 per cent of broadband lines offering speeds of more than 10Mbps, making it 11th in Europe.

There was one sting in the tail for people that use their phone abroad. A measure to recover VAT from those using a phone outside the EU was announced that will raise £305m between 2017 and 2022. Some countries have not been collecting that VAT from British travellers, according to the treasury. Regular roamers could end up paying around £5 more to cover the cost if their phone provider does not absorb the extra charges.

"Significance of NI move should not be underestimated"

Kevin Nicholson, head of tax at PwC, has these thoughts on the Budget:

This was a comfortably treading water Budget - keeping things ticking along as we move to a single Autumn Budget.

A number of reviews and consultations were announced, suggesting bigger news will come in the Autumn.

The increase in National Insurance was smaller than many expected, but the significance of this move should not be underestimated. It is very clear the Chancellor sees differences between the two regimes as anomalies to be ironed out. This has opened up a big potential money spinner.

The self-imposed tax lock is tying the Government's hands, as the Chancellor clearly wants to raise money but is committed not to do so from the main taxes of income tax, NIC and VAT. That means other areas of the economy will continue to see increases and tightening. There clearly wasn't scope for a give-away Budget but it would be good to see more attention given to entrepreneurs and wealth creators.
