As if there wasn’t enough uncertainty for the UK’s small businesses – we now have an election day to deal with. Ironic that ‘now is not the time’ was the reason given to the SNP to hold off from their second independence referendum. We elected a new government less than 2 years ago – surely it would have been more sensible to focus on Brexit and get on with the job in hand. Business was recovering from a slow start to the year and the worry now is that the Election will shift the focus of the government yet again away from the economy and supporting business. The other signifiacnt thing that has happend this month is we have applied for some European funding to support our move from paperless to digital record keeping – ironic or what?
