Specialists at accountancy and business management heavyweights PwC and Johnston Carmichael will provide additional expert commentary, starting from Sunday and all week as we anticipate and analyse George Osborne’s statement.

Daily Business continues to establish itself as an influential provider of business, enterprise and money news with a new one-day record of 20,329 visits and 48,535 page views on 11 March. The bounce rate (number of repeat views by each visitor) was a remarkable 0.12%, indicating a very high reader engagement.
It was also a record weekend with almost 10,000 visits and an even lower bounce rate on Saturday of just 0.08%. In February, the bounce rate hit 0% on four days.
Editor Terry Murden said: “These are fantastic figures, way ahead of some other sites, and give us a great platform for growth this year. We welcome a big new advertiser this week and are working on more plans for developing the site.
“It is pleasing to bring Jeff on board. He has written for a number of leading titles and is a big bonus for us.
“Daily Business is gaining a reputation as the go-to website for breaking news as we focus on the modern, mobile generation.
“We are always keen to receive feedback and welcome the views of readers.”
