UK could see ‘catastrophic’ cost of living rise in 2022

The next year the British would be greatly affected by the increase in energy prices and taxes. This comes from a study conducted by the think tank Resolution Foundation, which declares, neither more nor less, a “Disaster” at the cost of living. The study doesn’t happen in four ways: 2022 will be the year for the British when the post-Covid crisis is most felt and it is in the spring that promises to be particularly difficult. Prices will continue to rise, especially for energy. Inflation was announced in April at 6%, its highest rate since 1992.

Taxes will also increase simultaneously: an increase in the housing tax, the VAT rate for hospitality and accommodation. Dividend tax rates should also be increased.
