Whether you're interested in the smaller business community, are planning to start a business or have an existing business, we have a package for you.
Our most popular package is FSB Business Essentials which includes a whole range of benefits and products designed to make your business fly
A suite of legal benefits including a dedicated helpline, bundled insurance products and a range of online information to keep your business safe. Plus a whole range of negotiated benefits to help save you money and win business.
Our Business Creation package is designed to make starting a business simpler, allowing you time to focus on what's important - making it a success.
Specialist company formation benefits, access to FSB networking, business banking and a range of products to help get you setup in business.
Joining FSB Connect is free and is a great way to be part of the FSB Community and have your voice heard.
You'll be able to access specialist networking events with like-minded members of the community and have your say in our Big Voice survey panel.
Whatever your circumstances, we have a package to suit you and your business. Click the button below to see which benefits are included in each package and start your FSB journey.
'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.

With a new year now upon us, it’s a good time to review how well you use your time.
Questions to consider include: How efficient are you in terms of using your time effectively to achieve and exceed your objectives? Are you running all the time and never truly on top of your inbox, your to-do list and your workload? Are you proactively planning time on your calendar to progress your development projects and grow your business?’
If you are like many small business owners you are likely to find the 80:20 rule takes over: 20 per cent of your time provides 80 per cent of your revenue/goal achievements.
Think about that slowly and honestly. During your working week, it is likely that all the energy and effort you put into four days every week produced only one-fifth of your results. Yet one day in each week produced 80 per cent.
So often we allow ourselves to become caught up in the demands and needs of others or react to activities and events and lose sight of what we need to be doing to achieve our goals. We work hard, even burn out, but our actions are not focused on the best ways in which to achieve the results that are critical to our success.
• Review your use of time during a recent three-month period, perhaps September to November last year, and identify the percentage of events that were truly productive. Be honest with yourself and admit the percentage that was unproductive
• Plan to say ‘no’ to unproductive meetings; unsubscribe from timewasting email flashes; resist Facebook temptations and focus on planning and implementing productive activities
• Document your goals for the coming period and compile detailed action plans for each, including sub-goals, specific actions and time targets
• When planning your actions ensure they are ‘focused’. Meet people who are the decision-makers when selling; use social media wisely and productively to grow your market; establish systems that avoid repetition and time-wasting
This gives you access to a range of services to help you find new customers, build profile and deliver high quality integrated marketing campaigns.
