Dave Bowyer, director of training and education at AIS, welcomes the news that the oil and gas sector will benefit from today’s tax cut in the budget.
He said: “This move is exactly what the oil and gas industry called for government to do in order to stimulate much-needed, fresh, investment in the North Sea.
“A lower tax rate will provide a significant boost to the sector and kick-starts those projects stalling due to the drop in oil price. This in turn will have a positive impact on jobs and recruitment – something that’s great news for the 10,000+ people in the North East of England working in the sector.
“For AIS this tax cut reaffirms our ambitious growth strategy for 2015, which includes a major recruitment drive, new UK offices and global expansion plans.”
