Speeding up SME-friendly reform
As you know, the small and medium business sector is held out to be the only sector that can produce the growth and job creation that our country so sorely needs.
The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) has once again commissioned a study into how SMEs see their businesses and their challenges, and where support will be most meaningful. It will identify how SAICA can intercede with government to make it easier for you to do business and to create jobs.
- They want to understand what it is that will help small and medium sized businesses to be more successful, so that they can lobby on your and your clients’ behalf with both Government and Big Business
- They are interested to know what products and services the Accounting Profession can produce that will stimulate the growth of SMEs or make their lives easier and more profitable.
Small businesses should tell government and big business what they need
For the research to be successful a strong level of participation from SMEs is needed.
It won’t take your clients long – they just click on this link “2016 SMME Insights Survey” to get started.
Don’t delay, there is a deadline here – the survey closes on 15 July 2016.
As a service to you, to your SME clients, and to the South African economy as a whole, your July issue of CA(SA)DotNews will carry a special article encouraging your clients to participate.
Help South Africa prosper by telling Government and Big Business how they can – and must – help SMEs!
