CBI Slams VAT Concession
CBI REACTION TO GOVERNMENT'S REMOVAL OF VAT CONCESSION ON TEMPS' WAGES
The CBI has reacted to the governments decision to remove the VAT concession on temporary workers wages.
The CBIs Director of HR policy, Katja Hall, said: This is a very disappointing, retrograde step at a time when businesses need help to survive the recession and keep people in work.
Adding to the cost of hiring temporary workers can only add to the growing unemployment figures.
Temporary work gets people into jobs, and will be vital in cutting unemployment when confidence returns.
The concession was designed to be temporary, but we believe the government should wait until the recession is over.
