on Wednesday, 22 November 2017.

In a surprise announcement, indexation allowance - which allows a measure of inflation to be taken into account when calculating a Capital Gain made by a company - will be frozen at the end of this year, so that any gains made in the future will only be indexed up to December 2017. This removes a key relief from Corporation Tax, particularly for companies holding properties.
