Announcing new measures for home-based entrepreneurs, business minister Matthew Hancock said there had never been a better time to start a company.
It's this spirit of personal endeavour and self-determination that is driving our economic recovery.
But home businesses don't just fire up the economic engines and create jobs, they turn dormitory towns into living communities, they keep our streets safer, and by driving down car emissions, cleaner too.
We'll give people the confidence they need to run a business from a rented home, making sure that the majority of home businesses are exempt from business rates and our aspiring entrepreneurs have the information they need to start up and grow.
