Follow and be a part of the EDP’s budget coverage

Chancellor George Osborne is putting the finishing touches to his budget announcement on Wednesday and we want you to be part of the EDP's budget team.

All eyes will be on whether the chancellor will signal the end for the 50p income tax rate for high earners, while he is also expected to clampdown on aggressive tax avoidance strategies.

Businesses will also be looking to see whether the government will announce further cuts in corporation tax, and whether the chancellor will row back on plans to raise business rates by 5.6pc from next month.

You can follow the budget as it unfolds on or see also our Twitter feed at #edpbudget. There will also be full analysis about what the budget means for you from the EDP's team of writers in Thursday's newspaper.
