The consultation will help to identify possible solutions and, if needed, design new policies to help businesses grow.

The goal is to create serial entrepreneurs who will reinvest when they succeed, try again when they fail, and support a healthy entrepreneurial ecosystem throughout.

As foreseen in the Single Market Strategy, the Commission will also take action to simplify VAT requirements and put forward a proposal on business insolvency, to give honest entrepreneurs who fail a second chance as well as to facilitate early restructuring – a public consultation on insolvency frameworks is currently ongoing.
