Tax Package for Small
This Government knows how important cashflow is for small businesses and that the tax system is a key issue — it’s consistently raised with me by business owners, local chambers and business associations up and down the country. The Government has recently announced an SME-friendly tax package that will reduce compliance costs and make tax simpler for small businesses.
