Whether in its context as an office or as a part of your family and lifestyle but always directed at the improved prospects and enjoyment that running a business from home, in its entirety, can bring.

The City of London, Bristol, Leeds, Birmingham and Brighton were the top five cities for business growth from 2011 to 2016, with Manchester and Aberdeen also recording strong growth. The report also includes a series of case studies that provide information about the business support that is available in different areas across the UK. (EnterpriseQuest)

To line the pockets of their country's murder industries, the banks and every other evil, grubbing little faction with a cash suppository waiting in their pockets. Libya is merely one such country out of fifty or so which have been targeted since the Second World War alone, which may contribute in no small part to observations by murder industry henchmen like Sliam Fox recently, that Little Ingerlandt's bosses are too fat and idle to export. If only they had a few countries left to export to, of course. And murder industry fags spent as much time helping the country's 95% of businesses to export as they spend on dreaming up scenarios of making a killing (or a few million) for a living.

HMRC collects £3 billion in disputed tax. https://www.accountancyage.com/2016/09/05/hmrc-collects-3bn-through-accelerated-payment-notices/ HMRC has collected £3 billion from 60,000 accelerated payment notices (APNs) since they were introduced in 2014. When an APN is issued, any taxpayer judged to be involved in an avoidance scheme must pay the amount of disputed tax upfront, before the resolution of the dispute. Jennie Granger, Director General for Enforcement and Compliance at HRMC said: "Accelerated payment notices are at the forefront of the Government's drive to tackle tax avoidance schemes. Recipients must pay the tax owed within 90 days, changing the economics of tax avoidance." (EnterpriseQuest)

New portal for training contracts and tenders. http://training.skillfair.co.uk For over 15 years Skillfair (the tender alert service for commercial and public sector contacts) has been monitoring trends relating to the tenders and projects it sources. It has identified training as a contracts 'hotspot' and released a training-specific portal called The Skillfair Training Connection to bring together training contracts and attract organisations that are looking for training providers. The portal enables business and other contracting organisations to place their training requirements and training providers to respond to contract opportunities. Other specific portals will follow based on tender and contract opportunities in marketing, digital/tech and organisational change among others.

Andrew Corbett of Skillfair said: "There has been no drop-off at all in the inflow of training tenders and contracts. It seems that training is a buoyant requirement whether a statutory or 'elective' type of training." (EnterpriseQuest)

DCMS launches Tourism Action Plan. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has published a new report to set out its plans to support the tourism industry and ensure the benefits of tourism are felt across the UK. The Tourism Action Plan outlines a series of new initiatives to help the UK attract more overseas visitors, as well as increase domestic tourism. The initiatives include measures to boost apprenticeships and attract more people to careers in tourism, improved transport to make it easier for visitors to explore the UK by rail, bus and coach, improvements to the visa service and cutting red tape to help make the tourism sector more competitive. The action plan will be complemented by a new £40 million fund to grow tourism outside of London, promote key tourist destinations and deliver transport improvements. (EnterpriseQuest)

06.09.2016: HMRC measures to crack down on hidden economy. https://www.accountancyage.com/2016/08/30/hmrc-launches-plans-to-tackle-black-economy/ Measures to tackle the UK's 'hidden economy', promote tax compliance and create a level playing field for business have been outlined by HMRC. Three separate consultations on the proposed measures were published at the end of August and will close on 21 October 2016. The first consultation seeks views on extending HMRC's bulk-data gathering powers to include money service businesses (firms that exchange currency, transmit money or cash cheques for their customers) in order to identify their non-compliant clients. The second consultation covers making access to certain business services and trading licences subject to registration for tax and the third explores the introduction of new sanctions for non-compliance with tax law, such as failure to submit PAYE returns.

Recession fears 'fade' as UK's service sector grows. http://www.bbc.com/news/business-37274279

Report reveals small firms' Brexit concerns. Access to the EU single market and securing trade deals with non-EU countries should be the Government's priorities as it negotiates the UK's exit from the EU, according to a survey of 566 business owners by PwC. The survey revealed that more than two-thirds (67%) of respondents consider Germany the top-priority market in the EU for new trade agreements, with France and Ireland making up the top-three priority EU markets. The survey also found that 40% of business owners believe setting immigration targets should be a Government priority, while 21% think the Government should prioritise environmental legislation.

The House of Commons has published a briefing paper to assess what impact Brexit might have on different policy areas and business sectors. In particular, the paper looks at the impact of leaving the EU on trade, business and financial services, employment and agriculture. (EnterpriseQuest)

In the meantime, perhaps the protesters could turn their attention to French regimes with their terrorist foreign policies which have made a massive contribution to the flow of refugees.

Effectively the uniform de rigeur of western paedophiles, thugs, drug dealers, pimps, muggers. pickpockets, rapists, thieves and murderers, dealing with hoodies has long been high on the social agenda wish list, especially that of small businesses which know that once they see a hoodie, their livelihoods could be in danger.

I remember being part of a forum - easily twenty years ago - when those present wished there could be a 'shoot first, ask questions later' policy upon seeing a hoodie. Unfortunately, someone pointed out that a hoodie could also be used for concealing the face of a kerb-crawling politician - which is just one explanation why this symbol of dangerous British social extremism has stood the test of time. As well as it being a lot easier for Little Ingerlandt's hate-preaching media to target an alternative group which its dumb readers know nothing about. Fear is ignorance is exploitation is profit.

Unfair terms include suppliers charging high early termination fees, failing to make auto-rollover clauses clear upfront and concealing other damaging contract details in small print.

Mike Cherry, FSB National Chairman, said: "Small business owners behave in a similar way to consumers, but they don't have the same guarantees of quality or legal redress in an unfair situation." FSB recommendations include a more routine and explicit focus by regulators on small business vulnerabilities.

Anti-doping organisations call for overhaul of WADA. http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/anti-doping-organisations-call-for-overhaul-of-wada/ Now there's a call which isn't being seen in the media! As has generally been observed (outside western reporting), sport needs a truly independent monitoring body - and not one which is in thrall to the $ US and is nothing more than a mouthpiece for western terrorist propaganda. That way, even self-financing, self-employed athletes from poor countries who haven't had the financial 'doping' of £4 million per medal spent on them might get a look-in as well. (Let alone those countries which aren't members of the Coalition of Evil.)

With our usual gratitude and thanks to BAD News and Cobweb Info.
