Jay discusses Budget 2021

March 17, 2021

March 3rd, 2021 saw what has been described by many as ‘the Budget of a Generation’ with Chancellor Rishi Sunak announcing further measures to help businesses survive the pandemic and an announcement that the UK’s national debt will reach £2trillion. 


Jay Sahota joined accountant Andrew Tate from Kreston Reeves on the Kent Business TV virtual sofa to discuss the impact the latest budget will have on Kent. With the furlough scheme extended to the end of September and 600,000 more self-employed people qualifying for the Self Employment Grant, the pair discussed whether the measures go far enough or whether the damage has already been done. 


Host Phil Wellbrook also asked the pair on their views about whether vaccine passports will work, before moving on to the proposed Asda restructuring which threatens to close a click and collect store in Dartford and potentially affect 800 employees in Kent.
