Cut Red Tape

What is it?

No doubt your customers tell you about the constant challenge of running their business — balancing short-term and long-term priorities, ever-increasing red tape, looking after staff and managing cash-flow.

To help business-owners stay on top of this and ease the burden on their day-to-day operation, Cut Red Tape (powered by DAS Businesslaw) is a service built specifically to help businesses stay on top of employing staff and debts (including debt recovery), as well as providing tools that business owners can use to quickly produce essential business documents such as data protection, modern slavery and health and safety policies.

It’s designed to be a continuous reference point for information and help, including access to a legal and tax helpline. It’s available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
