The positive feedback of shop owners and small business owners to the Nationalist Party’s document on proposed policies for the retail sector was very encouraging, particularly with regards to the proposed tax reduction, according to opposition leader Simon Busuttil.

Busuttil visited a number of shops in Attard on Thursday and distributed copies of his party’s ‘A Policy for Retailers’ document, which lists 51 proposals aimed at the retail sector and small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

“Many of the people I met were particularly interested on the PN’s proposal to reduce tax paid by shops, retail outlets, self-employed and SME to 10% on the first €50,000 of their operating profits,” he said.

The document was officially launched on Sunday during the PN’s General Council.

Busuttil said this was the first-ever document drawn up by a political party specifically for the retail sector, affecting some 18,000 employees and 50,000 families.
