Today our colleagues in Ibec launched the Reboot & Reimagine campaign, which includes contributions from SFA members. This campaign outlines a series of actions in three phases; the next 100 days, end of 2020 and the end of 2023 to Reboot & Reimagine the economy. These actions included the need for greater cashflow and liquidity measures to support smaller firms, further commercial rates relief, the reintroduction of 9% VAT rate and employment supports.
