Citrus Bites Election Special: What Does the Election Mean for Your Money?

After six weeks of campaigning we finally know the result of the election. So, how will a Labour win impact our finances. In our latest Citrus Bites video, “What does the election mean for your money?”, Richard Harris provides a thorough analysis of Labour’s financial plans and their potential impact. In this special video, Richard covers:

What We Know:

  • VAT on Private School Fees: Expect changes affecting tuition costs.
  • Windfall Tax on the Oil and Gas Industry: Possible implications for energy prices and investments.
  • Triple Lock on Pensions: Good news for pensioners with this guarantee staying in place.
  • No Increase in National Insurance, Income Tax, and VAT: A relief for taxpayers worried about rising rates.

What We Don’t Know:

  • Inheritance Tax (IHT): Possible adjustments to this controversial tax.
  • Capital Gains Tax (CGT): Potential changes impacting investors.
  • Pensions Tax Relief: Future incentives for retirement savings are uncertain.

Market Reactions:

Richard also explores how the markets have responded positively to the expected Labour win. Highlights include:

  • Positive reaction in UK home builders’ shares: Driven by promised changes to UK planning laws.
  • Slight weakness in oil and gas shares: Due to the proposed windfall tax.
  • Strong Sterling: Reflecting market confidence in a stable government with a large majority.

Looking Ahead:
