Part of the government's clear long-term economic plan is the cut of business rates and to scrap the jobs tax from April 2015. "We need to be a country that celebrates enterprise and backs risk takers", says David Cameron (bbc.co.uk/news). Iconic Strategies Ltd believe that this is the right way to go in order to provide more Brits with the opportunity of running their own business.
Regulations about food labelling are going to be reduced from 30 to 17. In addition to that, 142 road transport regulations will be removed or improved. This means that 36 million vehicles will no longer need a paper disk.
