PRCA welcomes Budget U-turn on National Insurance
In response to the Chancellor's U-turn on National Insurance increases for self-employed professionals, Francis Ingham MPRCA, PRCA Director General said:
"Self-employed PR and communications practitioners will welcome this U-turn by the government. Next on the industry's wish list is the change to dividends, and the staggering Business Rate increases heading our way."
