80 Local Business Owners Seeking Business Advice
Eighty local business owners gathered at The Croydon Park Hotel to find out how they go about obtaining free business advice, access to funding and the latest HMRC news from representatives of the Institute of Chartered Accountants England and Wales.
The event was organised by Jeremy Frost, Croydon and District Branch Chairman of The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), who said: "It is important that local business are made aware of the many services available to them in these extremely difficult economic times. Not only services but many unknown grants are available as well. Meetings such as tonight provide an awareness not to mention excellent local networking opportunities."
