Analysing the Chancellor's Spring Budget

With the coronavirus pandemic having heavily impacted the UK business landscape, and disrupting operations worldwide, many companies are still fighting to survive this crisis, whilst thinking about 'what next?'.

The Chancellor’s Spring Budget will provide the second half of the recovery roadmap which businesses have been waiting for. We’re anticipating key announcements on VAT relief, Business Rates holidays, and the Job Retention Scheme. Join Rain Newton-Smith (Chief Economist, CBI), David Gauke (Head of Public Policy, Macfarlanes and former Lord Chancellor), and Rodney Appiah (Chairman, Cornerstone Partners) for a special discussion on the Spring Budget, including:

  • An overview of key announcements and how these may impact your business
  • Insights on whether the measures could kickstart business investment and growth – essential to our economic recovery
  • A look ahead to the economic picture for UK firms as we begin to re-open.


  • Rain Newton-Smith, Chief Economist, CBI

Replacing the Daily Coronavirus Webinars, our new bi-weekly broadcast, CBI @10am will help support you through the next phase, giving you expert insight and intelligence to continue adapting, and providing the guidance you need to restart and boost your business, and build resilience for the new normal.

Webinar recordings are made available on the same day of broadcast between 16:00 and 17:00. If you have signed up for the webinar, you will be sent a follow-up email with a link to the recording. You can also access all previous recordings on the CBI website.
