ACCA launches a blueprint for sustainable recovery
The challenges facing the UK economy as the
new coalition government begins its work are significant and require a bold,
decisive response from the very beginning of the Parliament.
As we emerge from the financial crisis with an unprecedented deficit, we
face also an onerous regulatory burden, pensions and tax systems in urgent need
of reform, and a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) sector calling out for
support. In the immediate future, policymakers must also broach the serious
issues of financial sector governance and regulation, and mitigate the potential negative impact on public
services of the efficiencies required to aid financial recovery.
In order to open our engagement with the new government and Scotland
Office as it commences its work, ACCA’s technical and policy experts have produced a
blueprint for a sustainable recovery which provides recommendations for
policy-makers on key topics including:
- the public sector
these measures would, we believe, improve the UK economy’s performance and prospects over the
long term in a sustainable fashion, both in terms of the environment but also
for small and large businesses, for the public and private sectors and for
other stakeholders affected by taxation and other legislation.
