Business Link provides email link to new rules

A new email guide to rules and regulations as they occur has been started by Business Link.

This has been launched in response to concerns by businesses that the government issues updates only every six months.

The new service is available at

Subscribers will be obliged to sign up with Government Gateway.

This involves completing an online form and supplying a password with a number.

Then Government Gateway issues a username.

In the manner of the British secret service agent Michelle in the television programme Allo Allo, it warns that it will say this only once.

So it must be copied immediately and stored safely.

Users can choose to have the service delivered monthly in a batch or as and when the new regulations are issued.

It is also possible to limit the scope of the emails to only those rules which directly affect the user’s business.

Business Link also provides a comprehensive guide to anticipated new rules.

It says changes are expected to employment regulations, tax, consumer credit and to regulations in the following industries and sectors:

  • Charities
  • Accountancy
  • Fisheries
  • Construction
  • Agriculture
  • Catering
  • Transport
