Thomas Drummond's Member Story
Aberdeenshire-based electrical specialist, Drummond Enterprises, has gained an enviable reputation for carrying out quality electrical installations on domestic and industrial properties, both on and offshore in their short but successful time trading.
As Drummond Enterprises moved into its second year, owner Thomas Drummond, who has extensive experience in the electrical industry, realised that if he was to achieve his ambitious growth plans, he needed to have expert business advice and support at his fingertips – FSB Membership offered him this.
Thomas takes up the story: “As a business owner, I am keen to grow my business, expand my network with like-minded professionals and share experiences and best practices.
Being in the FSB gives me peace of mind knowing that I am protected against what being in business can throw at me. Being associated with the respected FSB name adds gravitas to my business, especially as they’ve been supporting business owners like me for some time now.”
Thomas’ membership provides him with the tools and resources he needs to reach the next level in his entrepreneurial journey. These include the FSB’s legal and tax protection insurance scheme, 24/7/365 legal advice, health and safety and HR online support, as well as specially negotiated products and services that will advise him, whilst helping to grow his business.
FSB Membership offers comprehensive and free tax advice and tax investigation insurance as part of membership – protecting you if you are selected for an HMRC investigation.
Thomas adds: “The tax investigation insurance is a big plus for me; I sleep easy knowing that I am protected.”
This has proven to be a great business decision for Thomas, given that the average HMRC investigation taking around 16 months and accountancy fees to handle an investigation potentially reaching £5,000 if he was ever selected for HMRC investigation.
