HM Treasury has announced that the government’s next Budget will take place on 6 November, although this depends on the outcome of the Brexit negotiations.
Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid will deliver his first fiscal announcement amid a backdrop of political uncertainty and economic volatility.
He said: "This will be the first Budget after leaving the EU. I will be setting out our plan to shape the economy for the future and triggering the start of our infrastructure revolution.
"This is the right and responsible thing to do - we must get on with governing."
However, the Treasury did confirm that the Budget would be pushed back into "the weeks thereafter" if the event the UK leaves the European Union without a deal on 31 October, when the priority would instead be on acting quickly to support the economy.
It is also possible that a general election could be called in the meantime, delaying a Budget even further.
The announcement comes as the government delivered its first Queen's Speech under prime minister Boris Johnson, around five months after the expected end of the parliamentary session.
The speech outlined plans to introduce a pension schemes bill with provision to extend the powers of The Pensions Regulator, allow collective defined contribution schemes, and introduce compulsion for the pensions dashboard.
The European Court of Justice (ECJ) will deliver its judgment next month in a landmark case on whether pension lifeboat funds are paying out the right level of benefits.
The Conservative party will hold reviews of the tapered annual allowance and net-pay schemes if it is elected back into government, it has said.
Schemes must be aware of the proposed rules on reporting corporate events, or they could face a £1m fine, says Anne-Marie Winton.
The Labour party and the Liberal Democrats have published their 2019 election manifestos, with little similarities in proposals for the future of pensions policy.
The government is to pay the tax bills of NHS workers caught out by changes to pension contribution limits who have been turning down additional work for fear of running up large tax bills.
