Getting Britain working again ...

Between 1998 and 2010, the majority of jobs in the UK were created by small firms, with smaller firms tripling their share of total employment, according to the not-for-profit lobbying group Forum of Private Business. It says these figures demonstrate that the Government needs to do much, much more to help small firms if it wants the private sector to lead the economic recovery.

The FPB has backed wanobe.com’s call for a Micro Business Owners Day and has been working hard to help the recovery with its campaign to Get Britain Trading.

The FPB says when it says help, they’re not talking handouts. What they’re calling for is a level playing field for small firms to be able to compete and a commonsense approach to tax administration and employment law.

The FPB launched the Get Britain Trading campaign in February this year, following calls from its members that small businesses were really struggling and no one seemed to be listening. Its highly laudable main aim is to get the Government to understand the massive contribution that small businesses make to the economy and to make it easier and more profitable for them to do business. The FPB believe this will not only benefit small firms, but in turn the economy and everyone who lives in Britain.
