'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.'
'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.'
'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.'
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.

We offer three packages to suit your business needs. Joining FSB Connect is free, our Business Essentials package starts at £172.50 in the first year and our specialist Business Creation package has an introductory price of £99 in the first year.
We believe apprenticeships – jobs that include gaining recognised qualifications and essential skills whilst working and earning a wage – are an effective way of preserving important skills, transferring knowledge and keeping key trades and professions alive. Recruiting an apprentice makes good business sense, which is why a quarter (24%) of our members with staff currently have at least one in their business.
However, there are still barriers that can inhibit small businesses’ ability to take on apprentices, such as cost and access to information. In May 2017 the Government announced new funding arrangements for businesses that will not pay the apprenticeship levy, including additional financial support for small businesses with under 50 staff if they recruit an apprentice aged 16-18, which FSB has lobbied for.
Successful businesses recognise the value of investing and training apprentices. We want to see small firms choosing to get involved in apprenticeships, because they offer high-quality training that is truly employer-led and represents a sound investment in their future.
“The opportunity to get young people into work and training is massive, if we can get it right” FSB Member.
