Want to Reduce Unemployment? Support Your Local SME

Predictably maybe the Federation of Small Businesses claims that SMEs are generating the new jobs needed to rebuild the growth in the economy that HMG have signally failed to achieve.

They have just completed a survey that reveals that 90% of recently unemployed get back to work by either starting up on their own or working for an SME.  Specifically 17% start their own businesses while 52% find work within micro or small businesses.

The FSB are demanding HMG provide more support and incentives for small businesses to help them grow further and suggest that an extension to the NIC holiday might be a good place to start.

So, reader, if you are self employed or running a small business, what do you think the government should do to help you?  Send me your top three.
