Small firms are the first to sprout when the climate is favourable, but can also suffer worst in the cold. According to the Federation of Small Businesses, the future's looking bright.
There are 70,000 Social Enterprises operating in the UK, contributing £18.5 billion to the economy and employing close to a million people (many of whom might otherwise be disadvantaged in the labour market). There's a lot more to being a Social Enterprise than having good intentions and a sound business strategy. Setting up isn't as quick as some other types of business, and both running it and calculating its success can actually be more complicated. Jane Ollis appeared on the Business Bunker Radio Show on 14th April to discuss the ins and outs of building the world you want to live in.
Before 2014, the Percentage Threshold Scheme meant that employers were compensated if a large proportion of their workforce became ill at the same time. As of the 5th of April 2014, that scheme ceased to exist, and employers have been told they have to foot their entire Sick Pay bills themselves.
RIFT's Jane Ollis presents a series of workshops covering everything from dealing with HMRC to managing your personal cash flow. Come with questions and problems, leave with answers and solutions.
