Small Business Taskforce outlines priorities ahead of the General Election

The Small Business Taskforce has outlined its priorities ahead of the General Election.

The Taskforce which is made up of 14 organisations, including the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), Enterprise Nation and the Entrepreneurs Network, has set out six key recommendations in its election manifesto to help 'build a positive and progressive business case for Britain'.

The Taskforce is recommending the next government should provide an environment which 'champions the role of small businesses' and creates a tax system that supports businesses of all sizes.

They also call for the next government to provide an advantageous pensions and benefits system, supply procurement opportunities that are beneficial to all and create a workforce that is equipped for enterprise. 

Clive Lewis, Head of Enterprise at the ICAEW, commented:

'Whatever the outcome on 8 June, the incoming government must provide a solid platform for small businesses to flourish and grow.

Currently businesses are cautious about the future and are holding back on investment, therefore it's vital that, in the run-up to the General Election, all political parties spell out how they plan to encourage businesses to invest in long-term growth.'
