'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.'

Costs of waste disposal are rising and small firms face increasing pressure to minimise and recycle their waste.
Many small businesses have limited choice when it comes to disposal and recycling facilities that are affordable and practical. For example, many councils have restricted access to civic amenity sites, while private operators offer a limited service in many areas of the country. Any new rules on business waste need to factor in these practical challenges.
We have called for recycling rules to be flexible to enable businesses working in different types of premises to manage their waste sensibly.
We’ve called for small businesses to get the right advice on waste and resource efficiency.
We’re working with regulators and government to make sure they understand the challenges faced by small firms and keep enforcement proportionate.
We want to make sure that small businesses have practical and affordable ways to manage their waste, backed up by a supportive regulatory regime.
We secured a consistent approach to enforcement rules from councils and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) for new recycling regulations.
We convinced the government to delay introducing food waste recycling rules for the smallest businesses for two years.
We worked with the Scottish Government, SEPA and Zero Waste Scotland to ensure information for businesses about recycling rules were designed for micro and small businesses and accessible online.
We’ve called for a review of the recycling regulations to check whether the market is working for small businesses and for a restriction on any new rules until the review is complete.
