'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.'

Small businesses have struggled to access finance from high street banks since the credit crunch of 2008. Many of our members have battled to find investment to help grow and create jobs. We’re continuing to work with the Government and regulators to widen the choice of available banking products and alternative finance providers.
Small businesses are reporting that credit availability is continuing to improve. In Quarter 2 2017, the percentage of small businesses which were successful in applying for credit rose, following a dip in Q4 2016.
High street banks remain the dominant force in the small business finance market. A more transparent and diverse system is essential to offer small businesses a real choice of credit products and services.
We believe this would lead to greater overall stability in the finance market and protect small businesses if the economy were to suddenly contract as it did in 2008.

Following FSB lobbying, the Scottish Government launched a new £40m SME ‘Holding Fund’ to increase the level of finance available for businesses.
We were instrumental in the development of a new, online one-stop shop, allowing small businesses to find all available sources of finance - both public and private.
