Government Announcements

The government’s decision to reduce the amount of money it spends on publicising changes to employment laws should be matched by a freeze on new rules, a business group has argued.

The government has ruled out an official pre-Budget Report for this year, but has suggested that the Chancellor may make an autumn statement.

The new automatic enrolment pension scheme, which is due to be phased in from 2012, could prove expensive for smaller firms, it has been claimed.

Many businesses think that government efforts to reduce business regulation will be ineffectual.

The government may be looking at cutting down on the number of reliefs and allowances available under the current tax system.
