'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.

The Manifesto aims to focus on 4 key areas that impact on the London micro and small business sector:
Our members have made it very clear that there are many things they expect the next Mayor of London to focus on from day one after the election. Over half (56%) say that property costs require urgent reform. The spiralling cost of these two items is a significant barrier to growth and we are starting to see a ‘flight from the centre’ of established independent small businesses – exactly the type of business that makes London such as special place and tourists seek out. It is not just a matter of relocating to cheaper premises; higher costs ultimately lead to lower (or non-existent) growth, less investment in the business, fewer jobs, difficulties retaining good staff and general uncertainty for the small business owner.
Micro and small businesses – whether long established or just starting out – are a vital part of the London scene. Not just as drivers for growth, but as the glue that holds communities together. This is as relevant in central London as it is in our outer boroughs.
We encourage policymakers and practitioners and businesses to read the manifesto – to begin the debate and say proudly #ibacksmallbusiness
