Budget 2016

On 16th March 2016, the Chancellor George Osborne stepped up to the despatch box to deliver his eighth Budget.

This was arguably one of the most challenging speeches he has had to deliver since he took charge of the Treasury almost six years ago, made in the shadow of economic uncertainty and an imminent referendum on Britain's EU membership.

Client Testimonials

Ian Stephens, Managing DirectorIan Stephens, Managing DirectorCumbria Tourism

Lamont Pridmore have been retained by Cumbria Tourism for over 20 years, and during that period they have consistently provided high quality services for us. They understand our needs and those of the tourism industry, which means they have detailed knowledge of our work and of the work of our customers. I would highly recommend Lamont Pridmore and would especially highlight their value for money and personal service. People are looking to move away from larger firms to local ones and as a more local, independent organisation, Lamont Pridmore can provide better value for money. We know who to speak to for our different requirements, and the staff are always up to date with the latest advice and information. Cumbria Tourism gets a good service – the staff are very polite and always get back to us quickly if any issues are raised. The Lamont Pridmore workforce has always been stable and therefore we tend to know the same people for a number of years.

Robert Cooper, director and company secretaryRobert Cooper, director and company secretaryStobbarts Ltd

Stobbarts Ltd are a Sunday Times/Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 company. Our core business is in the nuclear industry which brings many challenges, not only in our day-to-day operation, but in our company structure which involves the formation of a number of joint venture arrangements. Lamont Pridmore has made a significant contribution to the way our company is set up and also integrates with other Nuclear Contractors under varying Joint Venture Arrangements, from full JV companies to contractual joint venture arrangements. Strategic advice provided by Lamont Pridmore has been instrumental in our recently securing a £60million contract on the Sellafield Nuclear Site. We also engage Lamont Pridmore to provide various other services, including taxation, audit work and financial services advice. In summary, we are very impressed as to the level of customer care and added value service provided by Lamont Pridmore and regularly recommend them to other businesses.

Sandra HollidaySandra Holliday CueDoc Occupational Health, Carlisle

I’d worked with other accountants in the past, but with Chris Lamont it’s really personal – he actually understands the business and shows that he actually cares about it. He has helped us with tenders and with putting together promotional material to hand out to prospective clients.

He is also available in the evenings and at weekends if I need to get hold of him. He goes above and beyond what you would expect of an accountant and I would unreservedly recommend him to anyone. I think he’s the bee’s knees.
