  • Foreign firms do matter but small business is our real backbone - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    FSB s work through their website The lack of suitable business support point is an interesting one Around one in four respondents cited this as a significant barrier On the flip side of the coin we are absolutely saturated when it comes to providing business support Recent estimates suggest that approximately 200 organisations are offering around 2 000 separate forms of support That is mind boggling especially when viewed in the context that one in ten small businesses does not know where to turn to seek support Have we lost touch with the needs of our small businesses or are we just not advertising its availability Whatever the answer to that question there are many reasons to be upbeat about Northern Ireland s small business environment In preparing this article it was encouraging to learn that more small firms in Northern Ireland reach 1m in revenues within their first three years in business than anywhere else in the UK Across Northern Ireland the number of start ups reaching a 1m turnover between 2011 and 2014 is 10 compared to 6 in England according to a report from the independent UK based researchers in the Enterprise Research Centre Surely that can t be a fluke local policy seems to be making a difference So in light of all the recent woes from some of our large inward investors it could be time to look for more local solutions and move away from the cult of attract and retain in terms of foreign direct investment The probability that an outside company will come riding to the rescue of any community delivering on its promises of jobs and investment and staying around indefinitely is slim All the evidence I have seen suggests that nurturing local small businesses makes a more significant impact In next week s Economy Watch we hear from Angela McGowan of Danske Bank From the web Sponsored Videos Your Comments COMMENT RULES Comments that are judged to be defamatory abusive or in bad taste are not acceptable and contributors who consistently fall below certain criteria will be permanently blacklisted The moderator will not enter into debate with individual contributors and the moderator s decision is final It is Belfast Telegraph policy to close comments on court cases tribunals and active legal investigations We may also close comments on articles which are being targeted for abuse Problems with commenting customercare belfasttelegraph co uk Powered by Livefyre Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Livefyre Read More How the economic policy of President Sanders could shake the world By Angela McGowan This year has the potential to be a game changer At some point in June the UK electorate will decide if we are to remain EU citizens or cast ourselves adrift A vote for Brexit would not only be a severe Everyone can make a Fresh Start and turn 2016 into a success By Neil Gibson Christmas is a joyous time of the year but one I also find

    have done more Was the money and support offered in the past wasted can it be clawed back Whilst it is true government plays an important role it is difficult to see what can be done to truly buck the market and alter global business decisions Already NI offers significant advantages to industrial employers either through the generous 30p in the pound rating level or the significant levels of capital support and grants In addition the region has low household tax levels both in rates levels and the absence of water charges which partly in turn facilitate competitive wage rates in many sectors Manufacturing median wages in Northern Ireland are 23 000 compared to 28 000 in the UK though this is partly explained by the sub sectoral composition It is the case that Michelin enjoyed significant financial support from the public purse over the years and it is correct to look to any clawback that may be applicable but it is dangerous to say this is an example of waste It is hard to imagine Ballymena would have been better served over the last few decades by not having the plant Personal impact acute Whilst it is possible to be relatively philosophical about the closure in purely economic terms this is abstract from the real tragedy at the heart of this news the personal impact For workers who are about to lose their jobs and for the local labour market this is a devastating blow at a time when similar scale investments are ultra competitively fought over in the global market and in short supply One can only hope that there are industrial investors out there thinking that the talented workforce in JTI and Michelin presents a real investment opportunity but the odds of this happening are sadly very low A careful assessment of exactly what the combined skills sets are across the JTI and Michelin workforce is required to help understand what they might collectively offer a new investor or how there might be specific retraining programmes or initiatives to help such a significant number of hard working staff In next week s Economy Watch we hear from Andrew Webb of Webb Consulting From the web Sponsored Videos Your Comments COMMENT RULES Comments that are judged to be defamatory abusive or in bad taste are not acceptable and contributors who consistently fall below certain criteria will be permanently blacklisted The moderator will not enter into debate with individual contributors and the moderator s decision is final It is Belfast Telegraph policy to close comments on court cases tribunals and active legal investigations We may also close comments on articles which are being targeted for abuse Problems with commenting customercare belfasttelegraph co uk Powered by Livefyre Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Livefyre Read More How the economic policy of President Sanders could shake the world By Angela McGowan This year has the potential to be a game changer At some point in June the UK

  • Economy watch: Why jobs may fall and prices go up due to the National Living Wage - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    competitive sectors where profits are already slender They could raise productivity while maintaining existing levels of employment assuming they have scope to expand sales significantly Or they could produce the existing level of output while raising productivity In this case employment would fall and as we ve already seen there is a strong possibility that the NLW will lead to a lower level of employment A lower level of employment would not be desirable Another undesirable outcome would be if margin strapped businesses began to operate in the so called black economy Firms also have options as to how they handle the question of wage relativities Other things being equal introduction of the NLW would tend to compress these but expect some resistance to this Firms may wish to use expert advice to conduct job evaluations Firms could also try to pay for the NLW through reducing any non wage benefits given to staff The NLW is of course part of a wider approach to economic policy on the part of the Westminster Government The Chancellor is keen to move away from a situation where the Exchequer carries so much of the burden of alleviating low pay through the welfare system and tax credits That is the big picture but businesses can have legitimate concerns around the process of introduction of the NLW and they do have some choices as to how to respond Of note is that the Chancellor views a 2 reduction in UK corporation tax rates by 2020 as part compensation for the higher labour costs For its part government and the public sector will face a direct challenge in those sectors where it determines the level of pay NLW will imply a major increase in costs in residential and nursing care homes This begs the question of whether there will be a corresponding increase in funding to the NI health budget either through a re allocation between the NI Departments or through an increase in the Executive s block grant from the Treasury As with most rabbits from Budget Day hats the devil is in the detail and the NLW is likely to prove no exception In next week s Economy Watch we hear from Neil Gibson of the Ulster University economic policy centre Related Content Economy view so what s the view from Dublin From the web Sponsored Videos Your Comments COMMENT RULES Comments that are judged to be defamatory abusive or in bad taste are not acceptable and contributors who consistently fall below certain criteria will be permanently blacklisted The moderator will not enter into debate with individual contributors and the moderator s decision is final It is Belfast Telegraph policy to close comments on court cases tribunals and active legal investigations We may also close comments on articles which are being targeted for abuse Problems with commenting customercare belfasttelegraph co uk Powered by Livefyre Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Livefyre Read More Making it simpler to cope with daily

    consistently high standards there is a growing preference within Northern Ireland for locally sourced products Reputation based on brand image is one thing but when it is based on firm evidence that is quite another This is where collaboration with the Institute for Global Food Security at Queen s University in Belfast comes into play Here a team of local academics led by Professor Chris Elliott is currently developing techniques that can be used at the earliest point of entry to the food supply chain to prevent contamination By ensuring the integrity of food produced in Northern Ireland this team of academics are raising the reputation of local producers further and helping them to be recognised as safe suppliers in global markets This sector certainly has a lot going for it but it would be foolish to ignore the challenges it faces too In the Republic the food sector still receives a huge boost from a reduced rate of Vat across the hospitality sector which provides restaurants and hotels with a significant competitive advantage for attracting custom Last year the Republic s government pumped a whopping 21m around 15m investment into Food and Health Ireland a collaborative research facility aimed at commercialising research in the dairy sector and in addition the food science departments of Irish universities are also very well funded The competition may be stepping up but Northern Ireland plc is ready for the challenge Next year has been earmarked as the Year of Food and Drink in Northern Ireland Those working in the food sector will be working hard but they will also need support support from the public to buy local produce and support from government in the form of a full implementation of the agri food strategy In next week s Economy Watch we hear from PwC chief economist Dr Esmond Birnie From the web Sponsored Videos Your Comments COMMENT RULES Comments that are judged to be defamatory abusive or in bad taste are not acceptable and contributors who consistently fall below certain criteria will be permanently blacklisted The moderator will not enter into debate with individual contributors and the moderator s decision is final It is Belfast Telegraph policy to close comments on court cases tribunals and active legal investigations We may also close comments on articles which are being targeted for abuse Problems with commenting customercare belfasttelegraph co uk Powered by Livefyre Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Livefyre Read More How the economic policy of President Sanders could shake the world By Angela McGowan This year has the potential to be a game changer At some point in June the UK electorate will decide if we are to remain EU citizens or cast ourselves adrift A vote for Brexit would not only be a severe Everyone can make a Fresh Start and turn 2016 into a success By Neil Gibson Christmas is a joyous time of the year but one I also find rather reflective It is a time
