George Osborne's Budget 2014 was all about the "doers, makers and savers" as he unveiled a series of crowd pleasing measures over pensions and other forms of personal finance.

As well as painting a rosy picture over UK economic growth over the next two years, Osborne revealed how lower spending will also end up saving families £2,000 a year, due to a reduced deficit.

Savers received a pleasant surprise after Osborne unveiled a range of radical pension reforms that will change the way workers retire in the UK, including removing compulsory annuities.

On top of that the annual tax-free limit on ISAs will be dramatically increased to £15,000 a year.

But it wasn't just about the older generation. Osborne also helped out the ordinary Briton by busting the income tax thresholds.

Osborne raised the personal income tax allowance to £10,500 per person from £10,000, as well as raising the threshold for the 40% tax bracket.

The government will also increase the 40p tax threshold to £41,865, from £41,540.
