The Federation of Small Businesses have been supporting smaller businesses across the UK for over 40 years.
As experts in business, we offer our UK-wide network of members a wide range of vital business services including advice, financial expertise, networking, support and a powerful voice in government lobbing government on issues affecting SMEs to help achieve local change.
Our mission is to help smaller businesses achieve their ambitions. We are a not-for-profit organisation, led by a team of our members, which exists to serve the small business community across the UK.
Small businesses are the engine room of the economy, employing more than half of all private sector workers and contributing 50 per cent of UK GDP.
We represent small businesses in Westminster, Whitehall and Brussels as well as councils across the UK. Our members tell us their most pressing issues in the 'Voice of Small Business' Survey and Big Voice surveys. These include employment, business confidence, pensions, planning, tax and business issues affecting you. We give small businesses a voice by influencing legislation to make it easier for businesses to grow, employ and do what they do best, running a business.
