Northern Ireland

Welcome to the FSB Northern Ireland Policy Homepage.

Chairman's Message

Small businesses are at the core of the local economy. They account for 99.9% of all businesses in Northern Ireland and provide employment for around 347,000 people. It is these firms that will drive forward economic recovery and the FSB will continue to lobby and advise on the policies and legislation required to achieve this.

Since the inception of the Assembly the FSB has enjoyed a good working relationship with all the political parties, delivering positive benefits for small businesses, such as Small Business Rates Relief, and the simplified Workplace Disputes Resolution process.

We look forward to cementing these connections even further as we work together in the coming months and years to create the conditions that will rebuild our economy after one of the deepest periods of recession in history.

Wilfred Mitchell OBE
Chairman, Northern Ireland Policy Unit
