New Enterprise Bill

The Government has published an Enterprise Bill that it says will back business to drive growth, create jobs and ensure economic security for all.

The measures include:

  • a clamp down on the late payment of insurance claims to help businesses recover faster from fires and floods. There is currently no clear requirement for insurers to pay undisputed claims to businesses in a reasonable amount of time – this measure will introduce such a requirement into every contract of insurance
  • updating the Industrial Development Act to give new powers for Government to fund new broadband projects across the country, for the benefit of industry or local communities
  • setting up a Small Business Commissioner to help small firms handle disputes with larger businesses over issues like late payment, which costs small firms £26.8 billion
  • extending the Government’s £10 billion cutting red tape target to include the actions of regulators for the first time

“Our Enterprise Bill will help tackle some of the biggest issues facing business today. Overzealous regulation and unacceptable late payments are just some of the issues targeted in a comprehensive package of measures designed to give a boost to the UK economy,” said Small Business, Industry and Enterprise Minister Anna Soubry. “This is about letting businesses get on with what they do best, while taking sensible action to support those that need it.”
