'Within a few weeks of joining we'd taken advantage of FSB’s Online Legal Documents. We started a graduate programme and access to these documents gave us an understanding of the legal side, and has helped us to create a number of processes and procedures.'
'Having somebody like FSB behind you is fantastic. There is a whole team behind the organisations, whatever is required: support, advice, finance, you know that you’re not alone, you’ve got FSB.'
'When we first took on a member of staff, we used the online legal document template library. FSB does more important stuff than you think it does, there are lots of member benefits, probably more than we actually use.'

The Scottish Government has produced a guide to help people starting up and running small businesses from home, after an FSB report revealed that around half of all Scottish firms are home-based.
The guide offers advice on areas such as whether working from home would suit individuals, legal obligations, start-up costs, IT and growth options.
Susan Love, FSB’s policy manager for Scotland, said: “This increasingly important group of firms is providing services, creating jobs and driving exports. We’re pleased that the Scottish Government has delivered this support.”
The FSB report found the most frequently cited reasons to operate a home-based business were the nature of the business (65 per cent), convenience (61 per cent) and to reduce costs (56 per cent).
One in three (31 per cent) specifically highlighted the high cost of commercial premises, with the same number citing improved work-life balance (31 per cent) and over a quarter (27 per cent) saying they wanted to avoid commuting.
Caroline Wylie has been running her business Virtually Sorted from home for the past 10 years. The company provides admin support for small firms, and employs 25 people working from home. “Clients get better response times, and I have a nicer lifestyle,” she said.
