Commenting on the Chancellor's Spring Statement, Simon Goldie, Director of Business Finance at the Finance & Leasing Association, said:
“The Chancellor’s Spring Statement recognises the importance of business investment. Considering that leasing is one of the main options that businesses use to invest, we urge the Chancellor to include it in the new capital allowances regime he is creating, and to work with us on a net zero deduction to replace the ‘super-deduction’ next year.”
