Getronics CIO, Tim Patrick-Smith comments on the Autumn Budget Statement 2013
In light of George Osborne’s Autumn Budget Statement, our Global CIO Tim Patrick-Smith has publicly commented on the announcement. The Chancellor pledged more investment in skills and apprentice schemes, which Tim described as ‘promising’. However, Tim emphasizes that ‘IT skills shortage is still a complex problem that requires stronger attention from the UK government’. Further comments include the tax breaks for SMBs as well as support for companies providing tax-efficient allowances to staff that have brought BYOD to reality.
