Enforcing national minimum wage law

The revised scheme to name employers who break national minimum wage law is now in operation
Employers who fail to pay the national minimum wage (NMW) will be publicly named and shamed under revamped plans to make it easier to clamp down on rogue businesses.

The new rules are part of government efforts to toughen up enforcement of the NMW and increase compliance. By naming employers it is hoped that bad publicity will be an additional deterrent to employers who would otherwise be tempted not to pay the NMW. This is on top of financial penalties which employers already face if they fail to pay NMW.

The revised NMW naming scheme, which came into effect on 01 October 2013, strips back restrictions, making it simpler for government to name more employers who break the law.

Under the original scheme, employers had to meet one of seven criteria before they could be named. The minimum amount of NMW owed to workers had to be at least £2000 and the average per worker at least £500 before an employer could be referred to the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) for naming.

The revised scheme removes these restrictions so that any employer who breaks national minimum wage law can be named.

In 2012 to 2013 HMRC identified 736 employers who had failed to pay the national minimum wage leading to the recovery of £3.9 million in unpaid wages for over 26,500 workers.

Womens Fund for NI

The Women's Fund has been set up by the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland to provide financial support to foster and develop new opportunities for women and to encourage peer-group leadership across our society.

The Fund aims to help women overcome the barriers currently preventing their personal development, by providing small grants to foster and develop new opportunities in their own lives.
Womens Fund for Northern Ireland
Strategic direction for the Women's Fund for Northern Ireland will be provided by an independent steering group comprising Dr Joan Smith, CBE (Chair), Barbara Gray - PSNI, Hazel Holmlund - Soroptimist International Northern Ireland, Ann Hope, Roseann Kelly - Women in Business NI and Paddy Skates - Queen's University Belfast Convocation.

"Andrew Carnegie once remarked that the best way to benefit the wider community is to place within its reach the ladders upon which the aspiring can rise.

"I imagine most people can recall a time in their life when the supportive action of another allowed them to take the next step on their career, their education or perhaps a brave step into the unknown.

"I firmly believe that this Fund is our opportunity to work together to empower women across Nothern Ireland to take the next important step in their own lives, in order to fulfill their potential and I do hope you will join me and others in support of this important initiative".  - Dr Joan Smyth, CBE

In Year One, starting in September 2012, the Fund aims to raise £25,000. These funds will be used to help women across Northern Ireland as well as helping ensure the future of the fund for years to come.

£150m Boost for Construction Industry

The UK's construction industry is set to receive a government-backed investment of up to £150m over the next five years.
Funding is to be provided to help reduce construction times, improve quality and make buildings more efficient.
A total of £60m is to be invested through the Technology Strategy Board to support the industry in designing and developing more energy efficient buildings.
The projects are expected to leverage in an additional £60m of industry investment and £30m extra funding across government and other agencies.
Business secretary Vince Cable said: "The UK's new and existing buildings must adjust to a low carbon economy. Investing in energy efficient construction projects is important to help industry and government achieve our aims of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50 per cent by 2025. I therefore warmly welcome the Technology Strategy Board's investment of £60m in energy efficient technology alongside the private sector.
"The construction industry contributes almost £90bn to the UK economy and supports around 3 million jobs. We are well placed to take advantage of new and emerging energy efficient technologies, commercialise them and then export them across the world.
"The future direct economic benefits of this investment are expected to be more than £1.5bn and three quarters of the organisations supported are small businesses with fewer than 250 staff."

Direct Lending Scheme opens to exporters

A £1.5bn direct lending scheme for exporters, which will be operated by UK Export Finance, has been launched.
The Direct Lending Scheme will support exports where buyers need loans of up to £50m to purchase capital and semi-capital goods and services from UK exporters, but have been unsuccessful in obtaining funding from the banks.
Lord Green, minister for trade and investment, said: "Exports play a vital role in rebalancing our economy, and where the customers of British exporters are having difficulties securing export finance from other sources, UK Export Finance can now assist by providing loans through the Direct Lending Scheme."
Under the scheme, UK Export Finance will provide an export credit loan directly to an overseas buyer or borrower.
It will directly negotiate the terms and conditions of the loan, disburse funds against the manufacture and supply of the goods and services under the respective export contract and manage the repayment of the loan.
Chancellor George Osbourne announced the £1.5bn Direct Lending Scheme in the Autumn Statement last year.

The High Street is dead long live the High Street

If you live in a grubby old house, and there is a dead mouse on the kitchen floor do you blame the cat for killing the mouse, or do you say the problem is a bit more serious than that? The High Street has some problems. This weekend the ‘Telegraph’ paraphrased a government minister saying the High Street was dead. The solution, however, is not to make online retailers pay more tax any more than killing the cat will solve the problem of a mouse infested house.

It is little harsh to say that Nick Boles, the planning minister, said the High Street was dead when what he actually said was :“People's shopping habits are changing very fast as a result of the rise in internet shopping and changes in lifestyle and working patterns.” He continued: “We need to think creatively about how to help town centres thrive in this new era. We want to encourage local councils to concentrate retail activity into the prime shopping streets in the heart of their town centres and adopt a more relaxed approach to underused retail frontages.”

Better Broadband For Businesses

Better broadband for businesses as market testing begins on Connection Vouchers scheme

Businesses in 5 cities can now apply for grants to cover cost of installing faster and better broadband.

A two month market test of the Connection Vouchers scheme, part of the government’s Super-Connected Cities programme, is now under way. The scheme will allow businesses to apply for grants of up to £3,000 to cover the costs of installing faster and better broadband into their premises.

The vouchers scheme aims to stimulate the broadband market to improve digital connectivity in participating cities. It particularly aims to benefit small and medium enterprises (SMEs), helping cities to create and attract new jobs and investment, and make the UK a more attractive place for companies to locate and do business.

First 5 cities to benefit
We have been working closely with a handful of cities who have demonstrated that they have the plans in place to take part in the initial market test.

These 5 cities are:

Manchester / Salford

These cities have demonstrated that they meet a set of criteria, including having a credible ‘demand stimulation’ plan in place (to inform businesses about the benefits of getting better broadband) and demonstrable and diverse interest from the supplier market.

The problem with banks

The problem with banks lending to small businesses is that it is not often a good idea. Business loans are risky, of course they are. Mortgages are less risky because for one thing there is the property they are secured against, and for another thing there is the fact that to the people who own the homes keeping up mortgage payments is just about the number one priority. But there is a third far more important point. Businesses create wealth; mortgages don’t. And the creation of wealth is incredibly important, but also by its very nature risky. Banks have become the bogey men of the 21st century. The public hate them. The truth is, however, that small businesses, the type run by entrepreneurs and that create wealth don’t really need banks at all, not banks as they are these days anyway. They need something far more. And curiously enough the venture capital industry has just been spelling out what it is.

Ireland targets 25,000 social enterprise jobs

Ireland's social enterprise sector has the potential to create an additional 25,000 jobs by 2020, according to the findings of a new report.
A report by Forfás said the sector currently employs more than 25,000 people in 1,400 social enterprises in Ireland, with a combined total income of about €1.4bn (£910m). But it added there is potential to double employment in the sector over the period to 2020.
But the study said a coherent national policy across government is necessary if the sector is to achieve its potential. This has led to research and innovation minister Seán Sherlock being tasked with developing the sector on a cross-departmental basis.
"The social enterprise sector has played a key role in Irish society and in the economy for many years," said Sherlock.
"Social enterprises offer jobs across a range of skill-sets, and provide services and employment in many local and rural communities.
"That is why as part of the Action Plan for Jobs we have committed to supporting the development of a vibrant social enterprise sector.
"It has huge potential for employment growth and I am particularly pleased to have been asked by the Taoiseach to develop the sector further."
