FSB Lobbying

FSB – a powerful voice in Government

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

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

As a result, we are creating the best environment for businesses to start-up and thrive, driving economic growth and creating jobs.

Big wins for members include the freezing of fuel duty, a new Small Business Commissioner to tackle late payments, a universal commitment for 10Mbps broadband as the fourth utility, £6.7bn taken out of the business rates system, and the creation of the employment allowance – saving £3,000 from all smaller employers’ national insurance bills. Most recently, FSB stopped a £2bn tax hike on the self-employed and won a further £435m to help those most affected by the recent business rates revaluation.

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

You can take part and bring about real change by joining Big Voice, FSB’s online community, to contribute to the policy surveys, polls and discussions which then help us lobby politicians and shape policies on vital business issues.

FSB members can join our Big Voice panel: and register your details.
