The artificial reality of apprenticeships.
With the regime's claims for 'entrepreneurial'
Britain and business start-ups suffering from
a significant loss of credibility in recent
months, the official spotlight has turned more
and more onto apprenticeships as the political
obsession with the employment marketplace, continues.
Having dropped an American pseudo-guru into

proper jobs frequently leading to proper businesses
and proper business-folk as well, has now become
tarred with the regime's quick-fix, highly mediatised
propaganda 'shorts' and a future just as dodgy
as it has been for the past thirty years. Still.
There are plenty more economic refugees on the
way to fill the regime donors' vacancies even

firms want more start up guidance. http://funding.altfi.com/articles/319-smes-need-guidance-says-survey
Research carried out by Just Cash Flow PLC has
found that 80% of small business owners have
admitted that they did not know everything they
needed when they first set up in business. Almost
half also stated that they specifically lacked
knowledge when it came to financial and business
planning. The research found that this lack
of business knowledge resulted in 14% of small
business owners making mistakes that have put
their business at risk, and 10% made mistakes
that had a substantial negative effect on their
business. Small business owners who took part
in the research stated that they would have
benefited from more guidance before they set
up in business, with 30% stating that more financial
guidance would have been beneficial. (EnterpriseQuest)

of new laws increases. http://www.lawgazette.co.uk/law/tide-of-legislation-defeats-deregulation-drive/5050409.article
The number of laws introduced in 2014 was 16%
higher than the number introduced during 2013,
research by Thomson Reuters has revealed. Just
over 2,000 Acts and pieces of secondary legislation
were introduced to the UK in 2014 compared with
1,736 in 2013. The devolved Governments in Wales,
Scotland and Northern Ireland were responsible
for introducing more Acts than the UK Government
for the first time since 2011. Commenting, legislative
expert Daniel Greenberg said this "highlight[s]
how eager the devolved executives are to make
their mark", adding that public and political
pressure means the volume of devolved legislation
is "only likely to increase". (EnterpriseQuest)

IT firms most at risk from late payments.
Research carried out by invoice payment firm
Tungsten has found that 32% of small IT firms
have faced the risk of closure due to late payment.
A quarter of all small and medium-sized firms
have faced the same risk due to late payments.
The average small business is owed £40,857
in unpaid invoices, and 51% of money owed is
overdue. Richard Hurwitz, CEO at Tungsten said,
"An unpaid invoice can mean the difference
between a successful month of trading and a
dangerous financial shortfall. In the worst
case, it could lead to insolvency." (EnterpriseQuest)
law changes ban restrictive sub-contracting
The Department for Business (BIS) has announced
changes to commercial contracts. The changes
will ban larger organisations from including
restrictive sub-contracting clauses in their
contract terms that prevent small firms from
accessing invoice finance. From early 2016,
in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, changes
introduced under the Small Business, Enterprise
and Employment Act 2015 will result in any restrictive
contract clauses, which prevent small firms
from using invoice finance, being revoked. (EnterpriseQuest)

from 1st October 2015, when the remaining provisions
of the Consumer Rights Act come into force.
The new guidance provides traders with information
about understanding what makes terms and notices
unfair, what risks they can face when using
unfair wording, and tips about ensuring terms
and notices are fair and clear. The documents
range in length from a single-page flowchart
to help decide whether a contract term is unfair
to a 144-page 'long' guide that explains the

Or, the latest global scam with full, official
measures for childcare providers in England.
From January 2016, all childminders in England
will be able to operate from non-domestic premises
for up to half the time they have children in
their care. This would enable a childminder
to work with a school to provide care before
or after school and still remain registered
as a childminder, as long they have received
approval from Ofsted or a childminding agency.
The measure was introduced under the Small Business,
Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 following
a consultation in February 2014. Under the Act,
all childcare providers and childminders in
England who operate from multiple premises will
also be able to make a single registration application
to Ofsted or their childminder agency, and will
be able to add additional premises to an existing
registration without completing a separate application.
on food hygiene for mobile traders in Scotland.
A consultation has been launched by the Scottish
Government about amendments to the Mobile Traders
Food Hygiene National Standards. Under the Civic
Government (Scotland) Act 1982, mobile food
traders have been required to obtain a certificate
of compliance from any food authority (such
as a local authority) when applying for a street
traders licence. Under the Regulatory
Reform (Scotland) Act 2014, mobile food traders
will now be required to obtain a certificate
of compliance from the food authority in the
area the trader is registered. The Mobile Traders
Food Hygiene National Standards have been developed
to support this change and provide consistency
and transparency, efficiency and effectiveness
in the implementation and enforcement of food
hygiene regulations. This consultation closes
on 19th October 2015. (EnterpriseQuest)
