Altrincham businesses to meet with Government Small Business Commissioner

By David Prior at

The UK’s first Small Business Commissioner, Paul Uppal, is to meet with Altrincham business owners at a special event next month.

The evening, organised by Altrincham and Sale Chamber of Commerce, will take place on May 8 at the Robins & Day car showroom, on Washway Road.

Uppal will update attendees on the work his office is doing in tackling the poor payment terms which can often leave small businesses struggling to survive.

He said: “I am really looking forward to meeting with Trafford businesses at the Altrincham and Sale Chamber of Commerce event. This is an opportunity for me to discuss how my office can support small businesses and ensure fair payment practices across the UK.”

Sue Aldridge, CEO of Altrincham and Sale Chamber of Commerce, said: “We are delighted to bring such a renowned champion of small business to Trafford.

“Late and delayed payments are a huge problem facing small businesses, interrupting cashflow and putting owners in a precarious situation. We cannot wait for Mr Uppal to share his knowledge on this vital issue.”
