IPSE congratulates Rishi Sunak on his elevation to the position of Chancellor of  the Exchequer.

IPSE congratulates Rishi Sunak on his elevation to the position of Chancellor of  the Exchequer. We note in his 2016 CPS report The Free Ports Opportunity he wrote: “The only way to fund world-class public services and outstanding infrastructure is to encourage the millions of British businesses that create the wealth of the nation – especially small businesses, family firms and the self-employed.” IPSE strongly agrees with this statement and would urge the new Chancellor to show his intent by immediately announcing a halt to the introduction of the new rules on IR35 in the private sector and having a fundamental review of small business taxation – to ensure it can create the wealth that Mr Sunak is talking about.
