Policies & Issues

The BRC published its submission to the Chancellor of the Exchequer in advance of the Budget on 21 March 2012.

The priority for the Government should be to deliver a more competitive UK, where businesses have the confidence to invest, knowing they have certainty that the policy and regulatory landscape will not suddenly change, where taxation policy is set out clearly over a period of years, where the state delivers literate and numerate young people ready for the world of work and where responsible businesses know their contributions to society are acknowledged.

To make the UK a truly great place to do business, inspiring domestic and inward investment, the Government needs a triple track approach:

- Paying down the deficit in a fair way.
- Improving our international competitiveness.
- Investing in key infrastructure.

The retail sector's contribution to the economy and society can only be delivered by profitable and prospering businesses. The Government should look to deliver more reforms, with more impact, to improve further the UK's global competitiveness.
