'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.'
We represent a diverse range of businesses from retailers to marketing agencies and just about everything in between. Take a look at more member stories and see how we could help your business fly.

Small business owners need to be aware of changes to the Immigration Act, which came into force last year.
The new law means employers who have “reasonable cause to believe” someone working for them may be in the UK illegally and who fail to report this could be held personally liable, rather than needing to “know” this is the case as under the previous Act. The new law also increased the penalties employers could face, from a maximum prison sentence of two years to five.
“We’re seeing a shift in the burden of responsibility from the Home Office and Government towards employers, particularly with the reduction in the evidence requirements,” said Martin McTague, FSB Policy Director.
Firms need to ensure they carry out right-to-work checks as a part of their hiring process, including making sure they request and verify the appropriate documentation, and keep on top of the length of time people have been working for them to ensure employees do not overstay a work permit.
