Regulation freeze extended to businesses with fewer than 50 employees
Implementation date: 31 March 2014
The freeze that exempts businesses with fewer than 10 employees from burdensome new regulations is extended to businesses with fewer than 50 employees. When new proposals are made, if unnecessary burdens on these businesses are identified, the proposals will not be introduced until an exemption is granted to the small businesses or the burdens are mitigated. The announcement of the extension of the freeze can be viewed on the UK Government website.
