Tax experts have urged UK chancellor Philip Hammond to “rethink” plans to cut corporation tax to 17 percent by the end of the decade in order to free up £5bn a year for other spending priorities. When David Cameron became prime minister in 2010, the headline corporation tax rate was 28 percent. Mr Hammond’s predecessor, George Osborne, repeatedly cut the tax rate to its current level of 19 percent. In 2016, Mr Osborne announced plans for the rate to drop a further two percentage points, to 17 percent, in April 2020. In his March Budget this year, Mr Hammond underlined his commitment to reducing the rate further; saying cutting it to 17 percent would send the “clearest possible signal that Britain is open for business”.
