The Autumn 2015 Spending Review has been followed by a rash of seemingly contradictory takes on the impact for SMEs. Read on to get the true picture.
While the Spending Review was wide ranging, with most attention focused on housing and pensions, there were potentially important developments for small to medium sized businesses.
At a glance:
There is much to laud in the Spending Review. But there are risks. Allowing local councils to set business rates could be a double-edged sword. The potential to boost regional economic prosperity is balanced by a risk of uneven competence in understanding the pressures SMEs are under.
Costs are an increasingly important issue for small to medium sized businesses. The Review promised to “announce shortly important steps … to improve competition, [that] will improve markets, reduce household bills and support productive businesses.”
While welcome, there is too little detail to be sure as to whether this will actually help the companies that are still suffering in the ‘great British business rip off’.
Sceptics may be concerned at remarks about “overly restrictive regulation”, which the Government claimed can “put the brakes on the competitive process and favour incumbent firms and established business models”.
While this does not refer explicitly to the business energy market, SwitchMyBusiness.com has previously campaigned for better protection for businesses losing out as the ‘forgotten sibling of consumers and corporates’.

Aaron Gallagher recently helped me…
"Aaron Gallagher recently helped me switch the gas and electricity supply for our business. He was extremely helpful and well informed which was great for me as I know nothing in this area! He saved us a small fortune and dealt with all of the switch for us which again was extremely helpful as it wasn't completely straightforward. Thanks again for you help Aaron, it was so appreciated."This review was posted by Rachel on the 17th of February 2018
A better deal for our Village Hall
"I recently used this company to get a better energy deal for our local village hall. Other companies were quite pushy but Lorraine and Bhavni from SwitchMyBusiness were much more professional. They sent me useful information by email enabling me and the village hall committee to make a decision about which supplier to use. The switch was done by phone and when the energy provider sent the paper work to the wrong address Bhavni sorted it out straight away. I saved over £1000 for the charity."This review was posted by Irene Winter on the 16th of February 2018
