Real concerns for real businesses
The FSB champions the UK's Real-Life Entrepreneurs by giving practical support through benefits and by ensuring that entrepreneurs are viewed as job, wealth and growth creators of the future.
But Government must now focus policies on stimulating growth by creating a culture of entrepreneurialism and enabling the smallest firms to flourish.
Creating the right environment for this is complex, but the FSB believes there are six things Government can do to take a big leap forward. These are:
Adopting a new approach to regulation
and cut down the amount of red tape small firms have to plough through.
Incentivising small firms to take on staff
and so help tackle high unemployment.
Opening up export markets
so that small businesses can really begin to grow the economy.
