This is made doubling challenging by large companies organising themselves in a way to disguise regional profits, often by claiming to operate out of one region at a loss by sending the majority of its revenue to a base held in a nation with favourable corporate tax rates.

The IFS said Hammond had chosen to spend his fiscal windfall rather than save it, increasing NHS spending by around £20bn until 2023-24.

Johnson's comments follow "end of austerity" plan announced on Monday by the United Kingdom finance minister, Philip Hammond, as he delivered his budget statement in the Parliament.

Labour MPs turned on shadow chancellor John McDonnell after he indicated that the party would not oppose the "tax cuts for the richest", which Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham said sent "a shiver down my spine".

This included income tax breaks for 32 million voters, help with business rates for the high street, more money for the government's controversial Universal Credit programme and a pledge to increase public spending in the years to come.

It said there was a one in three chance that Britain's finances would deteriorate sharply next year, and significant risks to the United Kingdom economy posed by Britain crashing out of the European Union without a deal.

Mr Hammond eased up on the big squeeze, says the i, while the Daily Express reports that he promised even better times are ahead from a "double deal dividend" if Theresa May secures a trade agreement with the EU.

Amazon, Google, Facebook and other technology behemoths could be hit by a new tax in the United Kingdom.

He said: "The Tories have once again chosen tax cuts for the richest in society, we will choose a fair, more progressive path and I will set out the details in the Scottish Budget on December 12". And the Treasury calculated the cumulative effect of increases in tax thresholds since 2010 at £1,200 for basic rate payers and £1,800 for those paying the higher rate.

Mr Hammond said his Budget was aimed at helping "the strivers, the grafters and the carers" and would pave the way for a "brighter future".

Jagjit Chadha, the director of NIESR, said public spending on health would need to rise significantly to accommodate Britain's ageing population by the middle of this century.

He said: "With one breath the SNP say they want to attract people to come to Scotland and then they follow it up by making Scotland the highest-taxed part of the UK".

Spending on the NHS will rise "substantially" but spending outside the protected areas of health, defence and aid looks set to rise only in line with inflation. We are not preparing for another general election.

"There's a whole range of examples of people I think that will be crushingly disappointed as a result of yesterday", he said. "That would not be in the national interest".

"Given the dominance of the US tech giants, it is hard to see the Trump administration taking kindly to the digital sales tax as the United Kingdom sets out its stall for the best possible trade deal with the US", Dan Neidle, a tax partner at law firm Clifford Chance told the BBC.
