UK to cut down taxes on fuel and wages 

UK government is lowering payroll taxes and fuel duties in an effort to alleviate the effects of the worst cost-of-living crisis in decades. Despite inflation reaching a record 30-year high above 6%, the government resisted proposals to levy a new windfall tax on oil business earnings in order to provide more assistance for people.

Rishi Sunak, the finance minister, said on Wednesday that he will reduce the levy on gasoline and diesel by 5 pence (7 cents) per litre for a year in the UK. The government would also raise the payroll tax threshold, amounting to a £330 ($435) yearly tax savings for about 30 million individuals, and lower the basic rate of income tax beginning in April 2024.

“Cutting taxes means people get immediate relief from rising living costs,” Sunak said in a speech to parliament. Sunak, on the other hand, did not announce a windfall tax on energy companies, which was a key demand from campaigners protesting the high cost of living. Oil behemoths BP (BP) and Shell (RDSA) generated a combined $32 billion in profit last year.
