There were certainly a lot of tax announcements in the Autumn 2018 Budget, but not so much for VAT. The potential game changers expected by some failed to materialise.
The main concern had been for small businesses and charities. They feared that the VAT registration threshold of £85,000 might be significantly reduced, bringing it more in line with the EU average of £20,000. This would have been to remove what is seen as an artificial barrier to business growth. Instead the threshold has been frozen again, until 31 March 2022.
