to a new report commissioned by Npower. The
report, 'SME Growth Forecast Index', reveals

strongest growth from 2011 to 2016, as well
as predicting the areas where business growth
will occur over the next five years. The City
of London, Bristol, Leeds, Birmingham and Brighton
were the top five cities for business growth
from 2011 to 2016, with Manchester and Aberdeen
also recording strong growth. The report also

collects £3 billion in disputed tax.
HMRC has collected £3 billion from 60,000
accelerated payment notices (APNs) since they
were introduced in 2014. When an APN is issued,
any taxpayer judged to be involved in an avoidance
scheme must pay the amount of disputed tax upfront,
before the resolution of the dispute. Jennie
Granger, Director General for Enforcement and
Compliance at HRMC said: "Accelerated payment
notices are at the forefront of the Government's
drive to tackle tax avoidance schemes. Recipients
must pay the tax owed within 90 days, changing
the economics of tax avoidance." (EnterpriseQuest)
portal for training contracts and tenders.
For over 15 years Skillfair (the tender alert

has been monitoring trends relating to the tenders
and projects it sources. It has identified training
as a contracts 'hotspot' and released a training-specific
portal called The Skillfair Training Connection
to bring together training contracts and attract
organisations that are looking for training
providers. The portal enables business and other
contracting organisations to place their training
requirements and training providers to respond
to contract opportunities. Other specific portals
will follow based on tender and contract opportunities
in marketing, digital/tech and organisational
change among others.
Corbett of Skillfair said: "There has been
no drop-off at all in the inflow of training
tenders and contracts. It seems that training

launches Tourism Action Plan.
The Department for Culture, Media and Sport
(DCMS) has published a new report to set out
its plans to support the tourism industry and
ensure the benefits of tourism are felt across
the UK. The Tourism Action Plan outlines a series
of new initiatives to help the UK attract more
overseas visitors, as well as increase domestic
tourism. The initiatives include measures to
boost apprenticeships and attract more people
to careers in tourism, improved transport to
make it easier for visitors to explore the UK
by rail, bus and coach, improvements to the
visa service and cutting red tape to help make
the tourism sector more competitive. The action
plan will be complemented by a new £40
million fund to grow tourism outside of London,
promote key tourist destinations and deliver
transport improvements. (EnterpriseQuest)

HMRC measures to crack down on hidden economy.
Measures to tackle the UK's 'hidden economy',
promote tax compliance and create a level playing
field for business have been outlined by HMRC.
Three separate consultations on the proposed
measures were published at the end of August
and will close on 21 October 2016. The first
consultation seeks views on extending HMRC's
bulk-data gathering powers to include money
service businesses (firms that exchange currency,
transmit money or cash cheques for their customers)
in order to identify their non-compliant clients.
The second consultation covers making access
to certain business services and trading licences
subject to registration for tax and the third
explores the introduction of new sanctions for
non-compliance with tax law, such as failure
to submit PAYE returns. (EnterpriseQuest)

to the EU single market and securing trade deals
with non-EU countries should be the Government's
priorities as it negotiates the UK's exit from
the EU, according to a survey of 566 business
owners by PwC. The survey revealed that more
than two-thirds (67%) of respondents consider
Germany the top-priority market in the EU for
new trade agreements, with France and Ireland
making up the top-three priority EU markets.
The survey also found that 40% of business owners
believe setting immigration targets should be
a Government priority, while 21% think the Government
should prioritise environmental legislation.

public back a ban on burqa by two to one, poll
Whereas the majority of the British public
probably doesn't even know what a 'burqa' is
(unless prompted by their hate-preaching media),
there has long been a strong case for banning
the 'hoodie'. Effectively the uniform de
rigeur of western paedophiles, thugs, drug
dealers, pimps, muggers. pickpockets, rapists,
thieves and murderers, dealing with hoodies
has long been high on the social agenda wish
list, especially that of small businesses which
know that once they see a hoodie, their livelihoods
could be in danger.
remember being part of a forum - easily twenty
years ago - when those present wished there
could be a 'shoot first, ask questions later'
policy upon seeing a hoodie. Unfortunately,
someone pointed out that a hoodie could also
be used for concealing the face of a kerb-crawling
politician - which is just one explanation why
this symbol of dangerous British social extremism
has stood the test of time. As well as it being
a lot easier for Little Ingerlandt's hate-preaching
media to target an alternative group which its
dumb readers know nothing about. Fear is ignorance
is exploitation is profit.
