Changes at HM Treasury
14/07/2022

Last week saw the resignation of the previous Chancellor Rishi Sunak from the Government. The previous Chancellor said he could no longer continue in his role in good conscience. 

The Prime Minister almost immediately sought to fill this role and appointed Nadhim Zahawi as Chancellor of the Exchequer. However, the Prime Ministers move to shore up his support, in the face of mass resignations, was short lived and within 2 days Boris Johnson had announced his intention to resign as Prime Minister. 

As things stand, it seems likely that a new Prime Minister will be appointed by September with Boris Johnson remaining in his role until then. The new Chancellor also appears to be remaining in his role, but it is unlikely there will be any far-reaching changes to UK taxes until a new Prime Minister is in place. 

There was also another new appointment to the ministerial team at the Treasury with Alan Mak appointed Exchequer Secretary on 7 July 2022. 

The new Prime Minister and his or her Chancellor will want to stamp their authority on legislation when in post in which case it is possible that we will have an early Autumn Budget that may see major fiscal changes.
