Reporting against the revised Code will therefore not be required until 2020 when companies publish their annual reports and accounts for the preceding year.

unstar this property answer text <p>Since 1 October, the Department for Business Energy &amp; Industrial Strategy has not received any complaints from small businesses that would be in scope of the proposed Small Business Commissioner’s complaints handling service. The office of the Small Business Commissioner has received two enquiries on behalf of small businesses, neither of which would be in scope of the proposed complaints handling service. Secondary legislation relating to this complaints handling service is currently before this House, and would need to come into force before the complaints service could launch. Subject to the will of Parliament, when it is in force small businesses will be able to submit complaints for consideration, including complaints relating to the period from 6 April 2017.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>In his role as liquidator of Carillion, the Official Receiver is an officer of the court and is independent of government. The liquidation process for such a complex and interconnected group of companies will take some time, as will gathering in full information regarding the creditors of the companies.</p><p> </p><p>We are carefully monitoring the situation and we have established a Taskforce with industry and unions to actively monitor the impact on SMEs and the supply chain, and to assess the action that can be taken to mitigate these effects. The Taskforce has delivered a range of supportive measures. This includes nearly £1bn in support to those affected from UK lenders; the British Business Bank giving available support of up to £100m to small businesses, through their delivery partners, using the Enterprise Finance Guarantee; assistance from HMRC to those experiencing difficulties paying tax and Government funding to ensure continuity of vital services.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to cracking down on worker exploitation in the labour market. This includes the exploitative use of unpaid interns.</p><p> </p><p>We continue to invest heavily in minimum wage enforcement, increasing the budget to £26.3 million for 2018/19, up from £13 million in 2015/16. HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) follow-up every worker complaint it receives and takes enforcement action against employers underpaying the National Minimum Wage (NMW).</p><p> </p><p>HMRC also conducts proactive, targeted enforcement in sectors or areas where there is a higher risk of workers not being paid the legal minimum wage. HMRC is prioritising employers of unpaid interns as part of this work. For example, HMRC routinely contacts employers who advertise unpaid internships, signposting them to NMW guidance to help ensure they are compliant. HMRC has contacted over 1,000 employers in this way since last year.</p><p> </p><p>The Government discusses NMW obligations with employers and worker groups frequently. This includes the issue of exploitative unpaid internships. In line with the commitments made in the Taylor review of modern working practices, the Government will hold a roundtable with employers and leaders from sectors that commonly use interns, to increase awareness of existing legislation. This is scheduled to take place before summer recess.</p><p> </p><p>The Government also committed to updating public guidance for employers and workers on the rules for paying interns. I can confirm that changes will be published over the summer alongside other updates to NMW guidance.</p><p> </p><p>The Government continually assesses the effectiveness of its approach to NMW enforcement, including the approach taken with respect unpaid internships. We will continue to monitor the use of unpaid internships through our regular stakeholder engagement and will publish further details on progress made in enforcement of the NMW over the summer.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Office of the Small Business Commissioner is sufficiently resourced for its current operation. This will be kept under review as the organisation continues to establish itself. The issues surrounding the collapse of Carillion continue to be at the forefront of the Commissioner’s mind in his discussions with business, in his role in encouraging a culture change in payment practices.</p><p> </p><p>Moreover, the Government has already moved quickly to put in place support to small business suppliers affected by this insolvency event and is working with the banks to ensure that firms have access to advice and support. We have set up a Taskforce made up of representatives from the construction sector, small business bodies, trade unions, banks and government including the Small Business Commissioner. This has produced a number of useful outcomes.</p><p> </p><p>The Banks have made provision for nearly £1bn of support to those affected, including £600m from Barclays, £100m from HSBC, and £75m from both Santander and the Royal Bank of Scotland and £50m from Lloyds Bank. The Government has also announced that it will make available through the British Business Bank support of up to £100 million to small businesses, through their delivery partners, via the Enterprise Finance Guarantee. HMRC are also helping businesses facing genuine difficulty paying their tax bills through the Business Payment Support Service (BPSS) by offering a range of practical advice and guidance.</p>
