FSB Campaigning

FSB – a powerful voice in Government

We are the UK’s largest grassroots campaigning group promoting and protecting the interests of small business owners and the self-employed.

We have a powerful voice in Government at UK, national and local level, representing members’ views to Ministers, Government Departments, MPs, MEPs, MSPs, Assembly Members, Councillors and Local Enterprise Partnerships. FSB has a voice wherever decisions are made.

We use this to drive change, persuading those in power to back small business. Some of our big wins for members include help to reduce business rates bills, new plans to finally stop the scourge of late payments, the overturning of a £2bn tax hike on the self-employed, a universal commitment for 10Mbps broadband, a 9-year freeze on fuel duty, and protection for the smallest businesses from digital tax plans and VAT.

Our growing success rests on FSB’s member-led constitution, our not-for-profit structure together with a world-leading approach to policy development and influence.

Our effectiveness rests on you having your say, on the issues you face in your business. You can take part by joining Big Voice, FSB’s online community, for free. You can then contribute to the policy surveys, polls and discussions which provide FSB with the evidence we need to lobby those in power. Join our Big Voice panel at: and register your details.
