The Budget.

Recommended Posts

I also don't get the point in increasing the limit on Cash Isa's.

 

Having just got around to filing all my stuff away (yes the bin would have been a better place for my ISA statement) I was shocked to see that my Isa (of ?3.5k) WAS giving me approx ?10 a month in interest in October 08 but is now only giving me 70p a month :evil: Just over ?8 a year in interest if it stays that way.. YIPPEE :evil:

 

 

You should be able to get ?100 a year interest. Guess you need to transfer it to another bank/building society.

With regards to the scrappage scheme, I understand that ?1,000 of the ?2,000 is a contribution from the manufacturer.....and there is a view that manufacturers will put their prices up to offset the allowance.

I expect that to be the case. The reality is that whilst you might get a ?2,000 allowance, you will still have to find ?6,000+ to purchase a new car...which of course depreciates substantially in its first year....indeed as soon as it's driven off the forecourt.
