Join FTAdviser at 12pm for Budget round-up

Tax has become even more of a minefield after "Spreadsheet Phil" issued his first - and last - Spring Budget.

With Tory backbenchers in revolt over changes to the taxation of Britain's 4.6m self-employed people, stealth taxes on probate and the need to fund social care, what long-term measures should advisers put in place to help their clients?

Furthermore, investors whose thirst for income has barely been quenched over the past few years have been hit by a swingeing reduction in the amount of tax-free allowance on dividend income.

Chancellor Philip Hammond cut this allowance from £5,000 to £2,000 - the aim was to crack down on company executives abusing the system but this has caused consternation among ordinary retail investors.

So how should advisers make the most of tax-planning opportunities for their clients post-Budget? All these points, among others, will be discussed in length by our expert panel today at 12 noon.

You can send your questions to simoney.kyriakou@ft.com ahead of the event or submit questions to us via Twitter @FTAdviser using the hashtag #FTAOnAir.

You can also leave questions or comments in the live blog which will be running alongside the panel debate.
