Manufacturers call for support package

Manufacturing trade body Make UK is calling for an emergency, pre-recess package of business support measures.

Manufacturing trade body Make UK is calling for an emergency, pre-recess package of business support measures.

The call comes after a Make UK survey showed growth and orders slowing significantly with exports close to a standstill.

Make UK has made recommendations for measures the government can introduce now to address rising business costs, including:

  • waiving or reducing business rates for the next 12 months
  • implementing VAT deferrals for larger businesses and waiving completely for SMEs
  • temporarily freezing the Climate Change Levy
  • reviewing the efficacy of the business interruption loan schemes introduced during the pandemic and deploying a successor scheme
  • extending the 130% super-deduction tax break, due to end in March 2023
  • making the increase in the Annual Investment Allowance (AIA) permanent.

Stephen Phipson, chief executive of Make UK, said:

'Whilst industry has recovered strongly over the last year we are clearly heading for very stormy waters in the face of eyewatering costs and a difficult international environment. This threatens to shatter expectations of a sustained recovery from the pandemic.'
