Small businesses have problems financing their operations

The proportion of small businesses that believe it is now more difficult to finance their operations is 29 percent, according to Företagarnas panel survey.

In October 2011 the figure was 25 percent. At the same time 23 percent believe that the financial opportunities have worsened over the past quarter.

- Small businesses account for the overwhelming majority of new jobs created in Sweden. It is a serious problem that they find it increasingly difficult to finance their operations, says Företagarnas chief economist Lars Jagrén.

Företagarna highlights four inexpensive measures that could contribute to growth and new jobs.

• Remove sick pay liability.

• Reform the law regarding protection of employment so that companies do not hesitate to hire.

• Intensify efforts to remove rules, regulations and controls that affect businesses.

• Open more public markets for private entrepreneurs.
