Forum of Private Business

Forum encourages Government to recognise to costs of employing for small businesses

20 April 2016 22:30


Referring to the disappointing employment numbers, Ian Cass said,

Today's numbers clearly show that conditions remain difficult for businesses looking to grow. While the government expresses a wish for UK business to be more productive, they need to recognise that the new Living Wage and the skills gap remain challenges for businesses looking to grow their workforce's, the regulatory and compliance burdens are equally unattractive, while there are less rewards for entrepreneurs and people trying to build businesses with the recent changes to dividend payments. At the Forum we are keen to see compliance costs minimised and more incentives made available to encourage rather than discourage employment.
