Consultation on Child Benefit:

Hunt announces a pivotal consultation on child benefit rules, considering a shift to collective household incomes instead of individual assessments from April 2026. The extension of the household support fund aims to further assist families facing the cost of living.

The government commits to reducing the higher rate of property Capital Gains Tax from 28% to 24%. Stamp Duty relief for multiple dwelling purchases is also set to be abolished.

Vaping Products Levy:

In a forward-looking move, Chancellor Hunt confirms plans for a "Vaping Levy", applicable to imports by manufacturers, particularly targeting the liquid in vapes. The implementation is planned for October 2026.

Alcohol Duty Freeze:

A relief for the hospitality sector as Alcohol Duty, initially set for a 3% increase in August, gets a freeze until February 2025. This decision stands to benefit 38,000 pubs across the UK. Additionally, fuel duty maintains its current level for another year.
