Dear GA Community,
I want to start with a heartfelt thank you to our community for supporting us and joining us on Facebook in these uncertain times. This is our commitment to the whole gift and home community to provide the best service, guidance and support that we can. If you haven’t already you can join us here https://www.facebook.com/groups/2611989742457431/
As you may be aware we have attended round table meetings with the Government and Bank of England for the Giftware Association, BTAA, JDA and DesignGAP. Working collaboratively we want to make our voice heard and even bigger, which is why we want to hear from you. By now you would have read the assistance that the government is proposing for SME’s. Our sources are stating they are getting numerous calls complaining that the government is not going far enough and is favouring businesses who have employees engaged under the PAYE Scheme.
By joining forces with other industry bodies, representing over 90% of the UK’s SME’s we have a golden opportunity to convey these messages to the government and they want to hear from our members about any extra additional measures which should be included in the overall assistance package and what further proposals your businesses need to survive. Click the link to send us your views on how the government could be helping more and we will pass onto the relevant sources.
Stay Safe and healthy
The Giftware Team
