Chancellor Philip Hammond announced a raft of tax changes as part of his Autumn Statement, including a cut in Corporation Tax and increase in the tax-free allowance on income to £12,500.

In broad terms, if you are fortunate enough to have a job or be on a pension, you will see either a modest increase in your income as a result of the changes, or no change.

The analysis from accountants Blick Rothenberg* shows that the effect of increasing the tax threshold for income tax and raising the threshold for the higher rate of tax both benefit those on average and above average earnings.

Those who are on benefits, depending on their personal situation, may still see a reduction in their circumstances.
