Here's an overview of the key announcements in Philip Hammond's first - and last - Autumn Statement.
- Letting agents
The Chancellor has announced a ban on letting agents fees "as soon as possible."
The announcement triggered a drop in the prices of shares in estate agents.
- Income tax-free personal allowance
This will rise from £11,000 to £11,500 in April.
By the end of 2020 it will rise to £12,500.
Hammond said that the higher rate threshold will increase to £50,000 by 2020.
- An end to some salary sacrifice perks
The Chancellor announced plans to scale back "unfair" salary sacrifice schemes.
- ultra-low emission cars
- pensions saving
- cycle to work scheme
He said that some long-term arrangements will be protected until April 2021.
- Insurance premium tax to rise
The Chancellor announced a 2% hike in insurance premium tax from June. This will see families paying 12% for car and home insurance.
He said the revenue would fund increased spending commitments.
- Relaxations to Universal Credit
Hammond has announced that the three million British families benefiting from Universal Credit will see the taper rate - the speed at which their benefits are withdrawn when they start earning - reduced from 65% to 63%.
But critics said the UC reform failed to compensate for the losses low-paid workers will face from previously-announced cuts.
- Fuel duty freeze
Motorists will benefit from the decision to freeze fuel duty for the seventh year in a row.
Motoring campaigners said the decision was a relief for motorists and businesses.
