Sháá Wasmund calls for amnesty on business legislation

2 Mins

The entrepreneur, who started Smarta.com to support business owners and entrepreneurs, will make an appeal to the Conservative Party Business Team and conference delegates, calling for small businesses to be given the freedom to do what they do best: manage their business, create jobs and make a vital contribution to the UK economy.  Smarta members repeatedly report they face a stifling mountain of paperwork and relentless red tape, which hinders business growth and wastes precious time and resources they can ill-afford.   In her speech, Wasmund will encourage the Conservatives to appoint a business team with first-hand experience, calling on the government to do more to understand the needs of small businesses.  She will also welcome an announcement by George Osborne that under a Conservative government, businesses will not pay National Insurance Contributions on the first ten employees they hire during their first 12 months.  Wasmund will suggest some simple measures to relieve the burden on businesses, including greater consultation, more opportunities for small companies to bid for government contracts, reduced red tape and simplified legislation for new and growing businesses. “A few simple measures could go a long way to saving thousands of businesses and protecting jobs up and down the country,” she says. “Don’t strangle entrepreneurs with rules and regulations – support them in growing their companies and the UK economy.” “The government must stop seeing small business as a piggy bank to be raided while allowing large companies to dodge tax using complex avoidance schemes.” Related articles:Lim Dems target entrepreneurs with proposed tax hikes
