Two years ago they removed the tax relief available for building factories, roads, railways, airports – that is, industrial building allowances
Was this tax relief reinstated? No. So there we have it, a budget supposed to be focused at investment in economic growth with no financial incentives available to the private sector to invest in big ticket infrastructure, manufacturing and hotel projects. The truth is this was a Budget focused on re-election.
What do you think?
