for post-Brexit customs arrangements. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-customs-proposals-laid-out-by-government-in-new-paper-on-future-relationship-with-the-eu
The Government has published the first of a
series of papers setting out its plans for the
UKs relationship with the EU after Brexit.
The first paper includes proposals for a new
customs relationship with the EU. Under the
proposals, the UK will create a new customs
partnership with the EU in order to align its
approach and remove the need for a UK-EU customs
border. The paper also proposes an interim period
after the UK leaves the EU when customs arrangements
would remain broadly the same as they are now.
This would ensure that firms in the UK only
have to adjust to one new customs relationship.
Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliaments
lead coordinator on Brexit, has dismissed the
proposals as a fantasy. (EnterpriseQuest)

Google has launched a range of new features
as part of its AdWords service to help marketers
and small traders better target their mobile
ads. Google AdWords is an online advertising
service that can be used to set up advertising
campaigns and boost website traffic. The new
features will allow brands to adapt their ad
content so it is more readable and likely to
be seen by consumers using a smartphone. Marketers
and small traders will also be able to add sitelinks
to their ads, which are additional links that
take consumers to a specific page on an advertisers
website, such as for details about opening hours
or a particular product page. (EnterpriseQuest)

UK retailers struggle with online selling.
Research from the European Commission has revealed
that retailers in the UK are less confident
when selling online than their European counterparts.
Overall, just 52% of UK retailers feel confident
selling online in comparison with the EU average
of 58% of retailers. Of those retailers that
are confident, 30% only feel confident selling
to customers in the UK. A higher risk of fraud
and different tax systems and national consumer
protection laws were identified by retailers
as the biggest barriers to selling online to
consumers in other EU countries. (EnterpriseQuest)

sector. False self-employment occurs when an
employer classes its workers as self-employed
in order to avoid paying income tax, National
Insurance contributions and employee benefits.
This is despite the fact that workers are effectively
treated as employees. Around 1.1 million construction
workers were paid via the Construction Industry
Scheme (CIS) in 2016/17, up 8% from the previous
year, which Unite claims is due to false self-employment.
Overall, 47% of the construction workforce is
paid via CIS. (EnterpriseQuest)
firms unaware of cheque imaging roll-out.
Just 20% of firms and 30% of charities are aware
that cheque imaging will be rolled out across
UK banks and building societies from October
2017, research by the Cheque and Credit Clearing
Company (C&CCC) has revealed. By July 2018
every bank and building society in the UK will
offer cheque imaging. This will reduce the clearing
time of cheques from six working days to a single
working day and could enable banks to allow
customers to pay in images of cheques via mobile
banking apps. (EnterpriseQuest)

The Department for Business has published the
findings of its first review into the effectiveness
of the Groceries Code Adjudicator (GCA), which
was set up in 2013 to improve the relationship
between the ten largest supermarkets and their
suppliers. The review has revealed that a significant
number of suppliers do not raise issues with
the GCA due to worries that there will be commercial
consequences, such as a supermarket changing
suppliers. Nevertheless, the review claims that
the GCA is effectively enforcing the groceries
code, and that the number of suppliers who are
experiencing issues with their supermarket customers
fell to 56% in 2017, down from 79% in 2014.

The Creative Industries Federation has published
a report which makes a number of recommendations
for Government to help support creative freelancers.
The 'Creative Freelancers' report reveals that
47% of workers in the creative sector are self-employed
(compared with 14% of the UK workforce as a
whole) and that many feel they are often ignored
by Government policy. The federation recommends
that Government should support a UK-wide hub
which signposts freelancers to specialist business
advice and support services, and ensure that
creative workspaces can't be changed into residential
properties without planning permission. (EnterpriseQuest)
