Following the uproar on social media about VATMOSS and the whole mess, HM Revenue & Customs are meeting with representatives of affected groups this coming Thursday 4th December, with the assistance of the Enterprise Nation campaigning group.
I will report back on that.
Meantime, the more outcry there is about this, showing just how destructive it will be to our sector of the economy, the better.
Please continue to encourage family and friends to sign the original petition
For those of you writing letters, there’s a very useful website “Write to Them” where you can find your local, national and European elected representatives and choose which ones to email directly.
If you know other small traders like ourselves who’ll be hit by this, please bring this group to their attention. Saturday 6th December is apparently ‘Small Business Saturday’ so that would make very useful lead in to a press release if we can say this particular group is backed by say, 100 people?
I’m happy to write a press release – words is what I do, after all – and I’ll run it past a journalist or two beforehand, just to get some fresh input. If anyone wants to see that before it goes out, email me at the group address firstname.lastname@example.org
