Overall these CT cuts for large and small firms will be worth £9.5bn a year to business by 2016.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>HM Treasury has not estimated the number of jobs reshored.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We will continue to work to ensure that the tax system in the UK remains competitive and enables us to attract business investment.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Illustrative projections published by the Treasury at Budget 2014 show that running a long-term balanced current budget would result in public sector net debt of around 60% of GDP in 2035-36, while running a long-term overall surplus of 1% of GDP would result in public sector net debt of around 32% of GDP. Lower public debt would reduce the UK’s vulnerability to future shocks as well as lower debt servicing costs.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
