Small business disputes cost £12 billion

There’s a lot that can be done to level the playing field in small business disputes. We believe that this is currently costing nearly £12 billion in disputes every year and the system that’s currently adopted is complex and difficult for small businesses to manage.

 

We’re asking for government to introduce a new online hub where disputes can be settled more quickly and we also believe that there should be a faster track commercial route through the courts that will help speed up a lot of these disputes and resolve them more quickly.
