A survey of 1000 small businesses in the UK has shown that they want to remain in the EU. They put this wish above taxes and highly skilled workforce desires. Their EU membership is a key concern of theirs with the new government.
Bibby Financial Services is an independent finance specialist that conducted the report. As their UK chief executive David Postings said, “The new Government must address the economic challenges ahead and create a stable environment for small businesses to flourish. The businesses we speak with tell us that this should encompass a reduction in the business tax rates and clarity on the tax regime over the next five years.”
David Cameron has pledged to hold an EU referendum on UK membership by the end of 2017.
