Rishi Sunak’s reaction: Business responds to Chancellor’s speech

The ISHI dog has received support from lobby groups for big business today as it sets its vision for the UK economy.

But small companies say his tax increase risks hurting the economy.

Ever since Boris Johnson referred to the Brexit vote as “F *** business”, there has been some tension between the Tories and the big business of the delay.

Despite huge spending and tax hikes by the government recently, there are signs of them winning back, and big business is often opposed to it.

CBI Director General Tony Danker said, “Businesses share the Chancellor’s ambitious vision for a high – growth economy driven by science, technology and innovation.”

Sunak said: “I want to reduce taxes but in order to do that we need to bring our fiscal position back to a stable sustainable position.”

He said excessive borrowing was unethical. “We need to adjust our public finances,” he told the conference.

He said Brexit would be worth it in the long run, despite recent supply chain problems. He confirmed plans to raise 500 500 million for employment programs.

There are also 2,000 artificial intelligence scholarships to enhance the UK technology sector.

However, concerns are growing about inflation and staff shortages, and entrepreneurs say they are not getting enough new employees with the right skills.

Mike Cherry of the Small Business Federation said.

“Small businesses and the self-employed are facing unprecedented pressure to increase the cost of their business, and they are expecting more from the Chancellor today,” he said. As the National Insurance Contribution Fund (NIC) and dividends increase, so do the costs of attacking small businesses and breaking down supply chains and removing the working capital used to grow businesses, invest and create jobs.


Rishi Sunak says the Conservatives want to be part of the movement, but the ambition is not enough – small companies want to see action. While it would be good for the Chancellor to announce some practical changes to re-employ people after the end of the vacancy scheme, there should be more focus on actually helping employers create jobs.

Shevan Haviland, Director-General of the British Chamber of Commerce, said:

“Businesses support financial responsibility, but decisions should be based on the economy, not politics. Ultimately, businesses act as wealth creators, creating prosperity, creating jobs, and helping communities.

“The Chancellor’s intentions should be appreciated, but the details are always important. We need to focus on creating the best environment in which businesses can grow and thrive so that we can sustainably generate the tax revenue needed to bring our public finances on a sustainable path.

Danker added: “The Chancellor’s emphasis on equipping young people into the world of work, from the Kickstart Scheme to the New AI Scholarships, as well as helping people get back to future jobs is the right approach.

“The only way we can achieve the high-paying, highly-skilled economy we all want is to open up productivity through high investment and growth. All must stand together to ensure that living standards are not further suppressed and that a better decade than in the past is achieved. ”

David Buick of the city’s Aquis exchange said: “Chancellor Sunak was like Gordon Brown did in 1998 – prudence was his motto, and so is the Chancellor today. With more than 500 500 billion in debt last year and tax increases for this coming year, even non-traditional Tory policies were crucial to maintaining financial discipline. Sunak has been a party lover for 2 years. The forthcoming spending review and budget will tell us whether he still retains the affection of his party. ”
