Our prosperity depends on the success of business and commerce. Every step must be taken to make our country the most attractive place to start, run, expand and invest in businesses. Government has a vital role to play in providing the right environment for enterprise. Rather taxing businesses, government should be helping businesses create jobs and prosperity.

Taxing UK based businesses makes no economic sense and, with globalisation, is increasingly unfair.

Our pursuit of excellence in public services will deliver real commercial benefits. We believe that money should be left with companies to do what business does best; to employ people and create wealth.

The Peoples Party will:

  • abolish business red tape particularly in employment matters and replace with a “short” business charter
  • cap the liability of companies, limit claims and the scope for litigation
  • abolish Business Rates
