Today was a busy day working alongside the Manchester Evening News to provide exclusive business tax coverage of the Budget 2010.
I won’t cover the detailed proposals here now as a) you can Google Budget 2010 and get a ton of facts + figures and b) you can get my initial reactions by visiting the M.E.N. Business section of the site.
Suffice to say that there were a lot of promising proposals for UK fast growth companies (including the video gaming industry – which is great news) but we are still lacking the crucial detail which will be key – I will update as the details emerge.
It was good fun to interact via Coveritlive as the Budget unfolded. Listening to Alistair Darling speak, digesting the info whilst reading and interacting with Coveritlive comments (many humorous comments too – thanks!) was both fun and challenging. You can replay our coverage here.
