“We greatly welcome the government’s Energy Relief Scheme which will cut prices for business as well as other non- domestic organisations for six months. This will provide a much needed life line for many small businesses in particular. Although this is much needed relief, as we have said to the Chancellor, Kwasi Kwarteng in our Budget submission – businesses need longer term stability at a time of economic uncertainty.
“We would encourage the BEIS and Treasury to be thinking ahead to how quickly they can give businesses more guidance on further support to help them plan the cost of goods and services for the next year followed by a review. As ever we want to work with the government to create a growth in the economy.”
