I was delighted to read in your paper that the Prime Minister has entered the fight to protect British entrepreneuers.
I just wonder where he was in January when myself, as UKIP's small business spokesman, started the fight against VAT MOSS - a tough EU regime for online start-ups. It appears Mr Cameron has now caught up and agrees.
The rules forced companies selling goods online to pay VAT in every country they trade in, rather than where the company is based.
A bit late to the table I think Mr Prime Minister.
Mr Cameron's lobbying of the EU and the subsequent revision of these laws is of course, welcome, but rather late. It is certainly too late for those businesses who have already gone bust due to these draconian laws.
"Now the election is over, I hope the Government starts to focus on the task in hand.
Margot Parker, UKIP MEP for the East Midlands and spokesman for small business, today attacked the Cameron government's "sly and misleading" assurances last year that they would protect the UK's small enterprises from new EU demands on VAT: "As UKIP warned at the time, a report out today shows the Government's assurances have proved worthless. Thousands of small firms have been forced to take a painful hit to profits while other micro-enterprises have already been forced to close."
Did you know about the new VAT rules which came into effect on January 1?
East Midlands MEP Margot Parker has hit at new EU rules on VAT for small businesses, saying it is a "devastating blow."
