• Budget sees changes to APD

UK Chancellor George Osborne delayed next month’s planned increase in Air Passenger Duty and said the "arbitrary" banding system used to calculate the level of APD paid would be reviewed.

Graham Pickett, airline partner at Deloitte, said: "It would be good news for air passengers if, as part of the review, the Chancellor follows the example of the Germans in the phasing out of APD as the EU Emission Trading Scheme tax comes in, so that travellers and holidaymakers are not effectively taxed twice."
