EXPERTS will gather in Glasgow in March to scrutinise the big announcements in the UK Government’s 2020 Budget and how it will affect people and businesses across Scotland.

The Herald Budget Breakfast Briefing takes place the morning after Chancellor Sajid Javid unveils the UK’s first post-Brexit Budget to the House of Commons on March 11.

It will be the Government’s first Budget since the Conservative Party won a majority in the December General Election, and the first after the UK has begun the formal process of leaving the European Union, which starts tonight.

The Herald event, which takes place at 200 SVS in the city on Thursday, March 12, is supported by Brown Shipley, Campbell Dallas, and Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie LLP.

Chaired by Iain Macwhirter, political commentator of The Herald, the briefing will hear from a panel of experts including Fraser Campbell, partner of Campbell Dallas, Roger Clark, head of wealth management at Brown Shipley, and Grant Johnston, partner and head of wealth planning at Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie LLP.

Mr Johnston said: “The breakfast will be a fantastic opportunity to analyse the various elements of the Budget with people from a
range of different business backgrounds.

“Pensions and tax are sure to be featured heavily, and as a solicitor these aspects will be of particular interest to me. Whatever the focus of this year’s Budget, it’s sure to stimulate some lively conversation and debate.”

The event will take place from 8am and 10.30am. Tickets to attend cost just £10+VAT. To book visit or contact Kirsty Loughlin on 0141 302 6016.
