Budget on Black Country 2018

Tracey, business development manager for £3m turnover firm, Howells Patent Glazing  joined a panel of Black Country business figures to discuss the impact of the 2018 Budget on the West Midlands economy.


Tracey told the Budget review at Wolverhampton Business Solutions Centre that it ‘was disappointing for businesses like hers,’ and that ‘it wouldn’t have much impact on small businesses.’

As a director of a family firm with more than 40 years heritage, Tracey was keen to hear of improvements and investment for SMEs and personal development.  “There were a couple of really positive announcements,” says Tracey, speaking after the event from Howells’ head office in Cradley Heath.  “The savings on business rates will be helpful for those similar to ourselves, as will the discount on the training levy.  We are invested into upskilling our staff and this will help with the next round that we undertake.  There was also a concerted effort to help micro businesses become digital.”
