LSEG Response to the Government's Green Paper on Financing a Private Sector Recovery
 
The London Stock Exchange Group has responded to the Government's consultation on how to improve the funding environment for UK businesses, in particular for Small and Medium sized Enterprises.
 
Our submission highlights the importance of bringing a wide set of investors to smaller companies that would lower the cost of capital to such businesses, allowing them to focus on delivering growth to the UK economy. Specifically, our recommendations include:
- A more favourable capital gains tax regime
- Allowing VCT participation in the secondary market
- Raising VCT investment criteria
- Allowing ISA investment in AIM securities
- Abolishing Stamp Duty over five years
- Facilitating retail investor access to corporate bonds
