Capital Allowance will boost manufacturing and jobs

December 5, 2012 3:19 PM
Originally published by UK Liberal Democrats
"It's fantastic the Coalition has recognised the importance of manufacturing to the British economy and is supporting businesses by introducing a 100% allowance on capital purchases up to £250,000.

"This will particularly benefit small and medium-sized businesses and investment in new machinery will in turn help to boost the economy.
"Increasing productivity in the manufacturing sector is hugely beneficial to the economy and will provide more jobs. Giving companies an incentive to invest is immensely important and I am pleased the Coalition Government is getting behind industry.

"Liberal Democrats are committed to closing the skills gap, increasing apprenticeships and delivering key initiatives to help businesses of all size across the country grow and succeed.

"As a party, Liberal Democrats have always supported manufacturing and engineering in the UK. In the Coalition Government, Liberal Democrats have made it a priority to increase manufacturing as a percentage of GDP and address the issues which have slowed manufacturing down in recent years."
