Views from the board
We must make the compelling case for the unique benefits of being within and trading as part of the Union. Scotland’s genuine majority voice must be heard and the majority do not want another referendum or to divide our Country at a time when we need to pull together!
— Ivor Tiefenbrun MBE
Scottish businesses have been too reluctant in the past to speak up about the possible implications of Scottish Independence. I believe we have a duty to find our voice in this debate, to help improve wider understanding of the likely economic implications of separating from our largest trading partner, the rest of the UK.
— Kevin Hague
Throughout my career, I came into contact with many Scottish business owners who expressed concern about the devolved tax powers and the divergence of income and other taxes payable by Scottish taxpayers from the rest of the UK. The last thing Scottish business needs is a tax system which puts Scotland at a competitive disadvantage to rUK. SBUK provides a platform for Scottish businesses to put their collective views forward as a single, powerful voice.
