Chuka Umunna MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Small Business & Enterprise, commenting on the Institute of Director’s second annual report on the tax burden on businesses, said:

“For all the Tory-led Government’s claims to be reducing the burden on small and medium sized businesses, this report tells us that they have been giving with one hand and taking with the other since they took power. 

“Businesses are already under intense pressure in the current economic climate. Because the Government is cutting too far and too fast, it is damaging confidence in the economy and inhibiting job creation.”
