In the middle of the legislative campaign, Boris Jonhson is ready to do anything to seduce the British bosses. In response to the request of the Confederation of British Industrialists, the Prime Minister has sparked tax breaks. One way to put British companies on the Brexit side.
At the annual meeting of the main British employers' organization, the Prime Minister retracted his promise to lower corporate taxes, but promised a reduction in real estate taxes for businesses. He also announced other tax breaks that, even limited, would reach one billion pounds a year and would include construction, research and contribution to national health insurance.
His main rival, Jeremy Corbyn, also promised to plan real estate taxes that he says are hurting businesses. The leader of the Labor Party also wants to strengthen business learning. In particular, he promised to support those he calls "apprentices for the climate". The energy transition is also one of his priorities. As a man of the left, he especially announced that, if he emerged victorious from the elections, his party was planning to carry out a series of nationalizations. He did not, however, go into details.
