Extending lending to small firms is a no brainer, and business rate relief is also welcomed, on a daily basis through our advice service I hear of businesses who are frustrated at being turned down funding, they wish to grow their business. If they do not get the funding then how are they supposed to grow their business? Finance can then create jobs which then helps the economy. Enterprise provides jobs, investment and tax relief is most certainly the way forward, entrepreneurs have ambition, they create jobs, we need to have a Government that supports businesses; they are the backbone of our economy. I think the Chancellor is saying the right thing, we just need people to buy into this, the Government need to ensure that the banks loan to small firms in order for them to grow and for businesses to employ more people.
