In his new year message, FSB Scottish policy convenor Andy Willox has said that despite more small firms turning a profit and more planning to hire, businesses are ‘by no means out of the woods’ at the start of 2014.
“Small business owners, like other citizens, need to understand how institutions with which they must deal every day – and which, as taxpayers, they fund – will operate in the future. Both sides of the debate have a duty to get into the nitty-gritty.
“The FSB won’t be a bystander this debate, nor will we get bounced around by political campaigns looking for someone else to make their case for them. We’ll ask be asking our members what sort of issues they want to see addressed before they decide where to put their cross.”
