Motion text

That this House notes with concern that changes to business taxation in the Budget are likely to lead to large numbers of self-employed people registering themselves as limited companies; notes that independent experts say this is likely to cost the Exchequer hundreds of millions of pounds whilst leading to a significant increase in the time small businesses spend on paperwork; and calls on the Government to reduce the tax burden for all small businesses regardless of their legal status.
