Boost your business

A new initiative has come into force this April meaning that small businesses in Midlothian will be able to claim a £2,000 discount on their annual employer National Insurance contributions.

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has, for years, campaigned to reduce taxes on job creation.

Our research shows that every second small business plans to expand in 2014, and many are looking at skills, wages, staff numbers or equipment. Now this discount is secured, Midlothian business owners should sign up and use it to give their business a boost.

We can give the Midlothian economy a real boost if we use this break to invest in our firms.

Details about the scheme can be found on the HMRC website.
