What should the UK's new prime minister do to support small businesses?
The next prime minister will inherit an economy that's changing at an unprecedented pace. The key focus must be creating the right conditions to drive growth, boost productivity and increase the UK's skills base. But how can they make sure this will work for small businesses?
The six-million-strong SME community is an enormous voting constituent and something the government can't ignore. We've put together some simple questions which will help us give the winning candidate practical advice on what works and doesn't work for small firms.
For example, do you think the lower taxes proposed by Liz Truss or the route promoted by Rishi Sunak of no immediate "sugar rush" will deliver a low-inflation economy while helping to create the growth we need to see?
And what three items do you feel the next prime minister should adopt as top priority in their first 100 days? In our survey, we offer 10 options for your consideration.
Please take the quick, two minute survey. With your answers, we can better represent your views.
Thank you for your time.
