The Taylor Review of modern employment practices
is expected to call for reforms to zero-hours
contracts. The Government appointed Matthew
Taylor, the Chief Executive of the RSA, to lead
the review in October 2016. Mr Taylor is expected
to warn the Government that some workers are
being exploited by employers, and to call for
a right for zero-hours workers to request guaranteed
or fixed hours. Employers would have to consider
all requests for fixed hours and give satisfactory
reasons for turning down a request. (EnterpriseQuest)

legislation for farmers planned.
The European Commissioner for Agriculture and
Rural Development Phil Hogan has revealed plans
to bring forward the introduction of legislation
to protect farmers from unfair trading practices
in the food chain. The European Commission is
considering six recommendations made by the
Agricultural Markets Taskforce in November 2016.
This includes, for example, banning payment
periods that exceed 30 days and preventing supermarkets
and processors from making unilateral and retrospective
changes to contracts. Mr Hogan's plans will
be discussed at a meeting of the agriculture
and rural development committee on 20 June 2017.

And at long last. For decades, the US has exploited

- a relationship which, for Britain, was never
affordable whether it be for strategic, economic,
commercial, moral or, as recent events have
shown, human reasons. If America is simply looking
for partners to take the blowback from its long
history of terrorism and crimes against humanity,
then let it fuck off and find another stooge
elsewhere. We've got other business to be getting
on with. And that's precisely what the Americans
are worried about when, literally the same day
as Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters started

unprepared for ransomware attacks. http://www.itproportal.com/news/uk-businesses-woefully-under-prepared-for-ransomware-attacks/
Two thirds of firms do not have a formal ransomware
policy in place, according to research by IT
service provider Timico. Around 66% of firms
that have been victims of a ransomware attack
said their data systems became inaccessible
within seconds of the attack taking place. In
addition, 33% of business operators said their
systems were down for more than a month and
15% said their data was irrecoverable.
National Cyber Security Council (NSCS) has published
guidance for small firms about how to prevent,
detect and respond to ransomware attacks following

on Friday 12 May 2017. The Charity Commission

urged to prepare for ban on card charges.
From January 2018, business operators will no
longer be able to charge customers a fee for
using their debit or credit card to pay for
goods or services. Currently, firms can apply
a surcharge when taking payment by debit or
credit card to cover the cost of accepting card
payments, such as the merchant service fee applied
by a credit card company. Under the new rules,
surcharges on card payments will be banned.
Business operators are being encouraged to start
preparing for the ban, for example by providing
incentives to encourage customers to use other
payment methods. The changes are being introduced
as part of the EU Revised Payment Services Directive
(PSD2) which must be implemented into UK national
law by 13 January 2018. (EnterpriseQuest)

funding gap threatens business support.
The loss of EU funding dedicated to supporting
small firms is a threat to economic growth and
productivity, according to a report by FSB.
The report revealed that 78% of small firms
have used business support services in the past
12 months. These services are often part or
wholly funded by the EU and play a key role
in supporting small firms to grow their business.
FSB National Chairman, Mike Cherry, said: "If
the next Government is serious about developing
an Industrial Strategy that delivers prosperity
across all areas of England, it must replace
EU funding dedicated to small business support
and access to finance after we leave the EU."

HM Treasury has ordered a review of the Bank
Referral Scheme. The scheme, which was launched
in November 2016, was designed to help small
and medium-sized firms that have been turned
down by high-street banks to find finance elsewhere.
Firms that have been rejected for finance are
referred to one of three platforms that can
identify alternative sources of finance. However,
the Treasury has raised concerns that the scheme
is underused and banks are not referring clients
to the platforms. The review will explore how
successful the scheme has been at helping smaller
firms access finance in its first six months
of operation. (EnterpriseQuest)

of Brexit on the UK's agriculture sector. The
report highlights that the sector faces significant
challenges as a result of the UK leaving the

EU as an opportunity for agricultural policies
to be tailored to the needs of farmers and consumers
across the UK. However, it has also warned that
farmers would need time and clarity from the
Government to enable them to adapt to change.
The committee also warns that farmers risk facing

on self-employment and gig economy. http://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/work-and-pensions-committee/news-parliament-2015/gig-economy-report-published-16-17/
The House of Commons Work and Pensions Committee
has published the findings of its inquiry into
self-employment and the gig economy (people
having temporary jobs or doing separate pieces
of work, each paid separately, rather than working
for a single employer).
committee found that many employers operating
in the gig economy are able to deny basic employment
rights to workers who don't have 'employee'
or 'worker' status, and often class their workers
as self-employed so their contract doesn't have
to provide any benefits such as sick or holiday
pay. The committee also found that there was
nothing to prevent employers and workers opting
for a self-employed contractor agreement rather
than an employment contract to avoid paying
tax and National Insurance contributions, which
results in tax losses for the Treasury.
committee recommended that after the general
election the new Government should produce a
plan for 'equalising' employee and self-employed
National Insurance contributions and all workers
should be given the employment status of 'worker'
by default rather than self-employed.
committee has also recommended that the new
Government should review the minimum income
floor in Universal Credit so that it supports
and encourages entrepreneurship instead of subsidising
self-employment. It has also suggested that
the floor should not apply to self-employed
claimants until the review has been completed.

changes dropped from Finance Bill. http://www.tax.org.uk/media-centre/press-releases/press-release-tax-advisers-welcome-sensible-pragmatic-approach-finance
Provisions to introduce Making Tax Digital have
been removed from the Finance Bill and are therefore
absent from the Finance Act, which received
Royal Assent on 27 April 2017. Other provisions
dropped include the tax-free allowance on trading
income for self-employed people who earn £1,000
or less and the reduction in the tax-free dividend
allowance. The Government's "pragmatic"
approach has been welcomed by the Chartered
Institute of Taxation, which had warned about
the risks of rushing numerous tax changes through
without proper parliamentary scrutiny. However,
the institute also predicts that many of the
provisions will return after the general election.
