Autumn Statement 2014

Our expert insight and opinion on the Autumn Statement 2014

  • Our 'Agents of growth' research has already shown that the MSB segment has continued to be disproportionately valuable throughout the downturn, contributing £305 billion to UK GDP in 2013 alone.

  • We are continuing to call for personalised account management for MSBs by government and a dedicated team to look at MSB issues, which would provide the focus needed, while also identifying any cumbersome processes that should be removed.

  • We know that finance remains a concern for MSBs and again, encourage government explore a provision for corporate venturing which would channel the great cash reserves that are currently sitting on balance sheets, to dynamic MSBs, while also enabling strategic partnerships.

  • Our interaction on the ground with businesses, as well as our most recent survey findings, show that extending the under 21 employers' NIC exemption to all apprentices would increase the number of businesses offering high quality opportunities.
