'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 recognise the benefits of paying their staff a good wage and offering a range of workplace benefits. These include:
We’ve welcomed the gradual increases in the National Minimum Wage, reflecting the upturn in the economy. However the Government’s decision to introduce a new, significantly higher National Living Wage from April 2016 is a significant challenge for many small businesses. Those in the hospitality, care and retail sectors are likely to be most affected, as their profit margins tend to be tighter.
We’ve always supported the National Minimum Wage. It has traditionally been set at a level that eliminates low pay without harming employment. Future wage rises must be sustainable and based on the advice of the independent Low Pay Commission. To help small businesses increase wages, the Government needs to ease financial pressures including rent and utility costs. Good first steps have been achieved with the cut in Employers’ National Insurance.
FSB research shows 18 per cent of small businesses have used the Employment Allowance to increase wages.
Lobbying Government to recognise the impact of the National Living Wage on small firms.
We’ve persuaded the Government to cut Employers’ National Insurance by introducing then extending Employment Allowance.
We’ve called on the Government to ask the Low Pay Commission to publish indicative minimum wage rates for future years to help small firms plan ahead.
