PRimage supports calls for small businesses to have a say on how their taxes are spent

Judy Viitanen and the PRimage team agree with concerns voiced by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) that the incoming Business Rate Supplements Bill will impose extra tax burdens on businesses. In our view, they are totally justified in lobbying for a series of amendments to soften the blow of the legislation. As a former District Councillor, Judy has first hand experience of local Government finance and business rates. She believes that small businesses must have a say on all projects to be subsidised by a tax brought in by the Business Rate Supplements Bill. This is crucial during the current recession – and if small business owners do have to pay this supplement they should have a say on where it goes.   There is strong support for  this money to be ring-fenced for economic development rather than to shore up Government infrastructure projects and local council budgets!

We want to hear the views of other small businesses on this important issue – so please post a comment!  Watch this space …
