Regulations

Increased regulation for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) is locking disadvantaged groups out of the workforce, the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has claimed.

The Department of Work and Pensions estimates that over half a million people will be saving into a workplace pension scheme by Christmas, owing to the start of auto-enrolment in just over a week's time.

Small and medium sized businesses are most likely to benefit from new steps to reduce business regulations, according to the Government.

Hundreds of thousands of businesses will no longer face health and safety inspections under plans announced by the Government.

SMEs are being urged to harness the £80 billion potential spending power of disabled people in the UK by ensuring that their goods and services are accessible to all.
