Last quote by Mike Cherry

The UK has slower download speeds than Romania, Bulgaria and Thailand. We welcome the government's commitment to an ambitious industrial strategy.

Mike Cherry quotes

May 10 2017 - Brexit

Brexit marks an unprecedented opportunity for fundamental reform. LEPs [local enterprise partnerships] and Growth Hubs must be empowered to tailor and simplify support according to local requirements. Ensuring that all small firms are aware of business support schemes should be a top priority.feedback

We cannot rely in the long term on the boost that exporters have received from a weak pound.feedback

Mar 31 2017

The promise of a £300m relief fund for local authorities to help those hardest hit is welcome. But we urge councils to make small firms aware of their allocation and finalise the mechanism for distributing it as soon as possible. What we have to remember is that bills have already landed. That being the case, any firm that pays their full business rates without realising they qualify for relief should have their overpayment returned automatically, and swiftly.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Single market

Small firms trade with countries based on ease, cost and value and any future trade deal must deliver on these key aspects both with the EU single market and non-EU markets. The top non-EU countries of choice for trade deals include the US and China. However, the reality is that the EU single market is still a crucial market for smaller firms and cannot be undervalued. Compared to larger companies, small businesses typically work to tighter margins with limited resources, meaning changes to the trading landscape will hit them disproportionately hard.feedback

Feb 06 2017

Spring Budget 2017 is a critical moment for the government to show it is unashamedly pro-business, and that the Chancellor recognises that small businesses are the engines of job creation. Spiralling labour costs are now threatening their growth ambitions and hiring intentions. FSB was established to champion the interests of the self-employed. At Spring Budget 2017, our entrepreneurial culture is on the line. The Government's announcements on self-employment will be the litmus test for how pro-business it is going to be for the rest of this Parliament.feedback

Jan 25 2017

Small business exports have been on the rise since the referendum with the lower value of the pound making UK goods and services more competitive. We know that our members who export are more likely to survive, innovate and grow.feedback

Jan 25 2017 - Single market

As the UK leaves the single market any new agreement must maintain the current ease of trade with the EU and not lead to additional administrative or financial burdens.feedback
