  • The fee payable with an application for probate was set to increase, in some cases considerably, from 1st May 2017.
  • Money purchase annual allowance for pension contributions was due to be decreased from £10,000 to £4,000 for those in drawdown.
  • The individual tax free allowance for Dividend income was set to be reduced from £5,000 to £2,000 pa, in April 2018.
