Whatever your business, the FSB will work for you.
Incentivise job creation
Turning a good idea into a thriving business often requires people. In the UK, 95 per cent of all businesses employ less than five people. But taking on staff is expensive and risky, and often it is taking on the first member of staff that is the biggest challenge. Since 2007, employment law has become more complex.
The FSB commitment
The FSB provides a free-through-membership legal helpline
– available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – to deal with all aspects of employment law. We help real entrepreneurs looking to grow their business by providing insurance in the event of an employment dispute, free lagal documents and information on employment law.
How the Government can help
The cost of taking on staff should be reduced by extending the Government's current National Insurance Contributions
holiday to all parts of the UK, and to all existing businesses employing fewer than four members of staff, that take on an additional three.
