2009 Budget date
The Chancellor has announced that the 2009 Budget will be held at 12:30pm on Wednesday, 22 April 2009.
The Budget this year will take place later than is usually the case. The Chancellor explained that the Budget has been delayed until after the G20 meeting which is taking place in London on 2 April 2009 and which will focus on tackling the global financial crisis. The Budget will take place following the G20 meeting and the Parliament Easter recess.
Details of all the Budget announcements will be made on a special Budget 2009 section of the HMRC website which will be updated almost immediately following completion of the Chancellor’s speech.
