Posted on 1st October 2020

Received from our friends at Galloways on Friday 25th September


Hello Martyn

Yesterday, the Chancellor Rishi Sunak outlined additional government support to provide certainty to businesses and workers impacted by coronavirus across the UK.

The key announcements were measures aimed at protecting jobs and helping businesses through this period of continued uncertainty. The four main pillars of the announcement were:

  • The Jobs Support Scheme;
  • Extending the Self Employment Income Support Scheme;
  • 15% VAT cut for the hospitality and tourism sectors; and
  • Support for businesses in repaying government backed loans.

This link (or the full URL below) will take you to our guide to these announcements which provides an outline of how these schemes will work and the eligibility criteria.

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "

Judi Arditi, Director
(Travail Employment Group)

"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."

Mims Davies MP, Member of Parliament for Mid Sussex

"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
