Speed up SME-friendly reform and tell government and big business what you need
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.
Help South Africa prosper by telling Government and Big Business how they can – and must – help SMEs. For the research to be successful a strong level of participation from SMEs is needed.
So if your law firm, estate agency or property service business falls into the “small to medium sized” category, please complete this survey. And in any event please pass it on to all your SME clients - it won’t take long.
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.
