Brewin Dolphin and Legal News Wales present a free, bite-sized event for lawyers to help explore the impact of this year’s Budget, for lawyers and their clients.

The 2021 Budget will take place on Wednesday 3 March 2021 – almost a year after the last Budget (dubbed the ‘coronavirus Budget’ on 11 March 2020. The planned autumn Budget was cancelled in September.

Just a few days later, the UK went into a full lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. The full economic impact still remains to be seen as we sit firmly in a Level 4 lockdown in Wales, watching the vaccine programme unfold.

We may yet see a ‘pre-Budget recovery plan’ later this month, before the Chancellor makes his announcements on the 3 March.

Our event: what to expect

The team at Brewin Dolphin will unpick the key points from this year’s Budget, to help lawyers understand what they mean for you and your clients.

We’ll also host a Q&A session to answer any questions you might have on the impact of the Budget announcements.

  • Richard Kelly, Divisional Director, Investment Manager, Brewin Dolphin
  • Greg Tait, Financial Planner, Brewin Dolphin

All are welcome to join us!
