Labour will prioritise tax cuts for small firms
No one will be surprised that some business people are calling for low taxes for big businesses. That's nothing new and under Labour Britain will have the most competitive corporation tax rate in the G7.
But whilst the recovery may have reached some firms it hasn't reached many others which is why we will prioritise tax cuts for the smallest firms with an immediate cut in business rates for 1.5 million small business premises....
That's not anti-business - it's anti-business as usual. And many business people understand that because they see the low productivity economy we've become after five years of wages not keeping up with prices and soaring zero-hours contracts.
We understand that Britain only succeeds when working people succeed. We don't believe, as David Cameron does, in more tax cuts for the richest in society - the priority is tax cuts for small firms, working people and saving our NHS.
