(PRWEB UK) 2 June 2013
Britain's largest online parcel delivery service has backed a call by the government's enterprise advisor who wants to see the age cap on accessing taxpayer-funded loans to start small businesses removed.
A new report by Lord Young has said that the UK has "one of the best environments in the world for the creation of new firms". He wants aspiring entrepreneurs over the age of 30 to be given access to government start-up loans in order to encourage the creation of more micro-firms.
Bolton-based Parcel2Go, which helps a wide range of businesses make low-cost parcel deliveries to destinations across world, has thrown its weight behind Lord Young's Growing Your Business report. It also believes the UK's smallest businesses must play an important role in helping to get Britain's economy back on track.
Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said: "We fully back Lord Young's assertions regarding the growing importance of small and micro businesses. As his report states, the number of firms operating in the UK has risen from 4.26 million in 2008 to 4.8 million last year, and the potential for further growth is undeniable.
