More hard work needed after Budget

Business rates, VAT thresholds and investment in 5G mobile networks, full fibre broadband and artificial intelligence were among the  measures in today’s Budget.

Our managing director Simon Boyd said: “It was disappointing but not surprising to see productivity growth and business investment figures revised down.

“Measures in the Budget to encourage investment, training and new technology may go some way to address this, yet the only real solution remains with a clean Brexit from the EU and the freedom that offers our businesses free from the constraints of EU regulations and directives.

“The Chancellor promised to set aside £3bn to prepare for our departure although […]

Chancellor urged to be positive in Budget

‘Spreadsheet Phil’ must get his numbers right to ensure that we have an economy fit for Brexit whatever the outcome, and that includes setting aside more funding for a ‘no deal’ scenario.

“It means greater support for businesses, including measures to boost investment and productivity, so […]
