'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.'
We represent a diverse range of businesses from retailers to marketing agencies and just about everything in between. Take a look at more member stories and see how we could help your business fly.

You may have seen the first part of this blog on Monday, we’re topping it up with some more information from the professionals who provide our FSB services.
When we say that we can save our members time, we really mean it. At the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) our whole aim is to make business fairer, and in some ways, easier for entrepreneurs around the UK. We might not always be able to make your working day a breeze, but we will certainly try to ease some of the daily pressures you have to face.
We take great pride in being able to offer exceptional member benefits, as well as lobbying on a political level to help you get to where you need to be.
This month we’ve been exploring the concept of ‘Time’ and how our benefits can make even the most menial tasks a little more bearable.
Again, let’s take a look at how FSB Member Benefits can save you precious time.
“You shouldn’t have to worry about your staff filling up your vehicles, or their private vehicles and you shouldn’t spend hours poring over receipts to make sure you claim all of your VAT back.”
“Not only do our customers see significant savings on their fuel purchases and gain access to the UK’s largest fuel network, they also vastly reduce their administration cost and time - a real headache for many UK businesses.”
“Fuel cards make it quicker to claim VAT back
You will get an itemised, HMRC approved, VAT invoice without the need to keep receipts or log transactions manually. The invoices should show exactly what has been purchased, when and where it was purchased including the type of fuel and the cost of each transaction with the VAT breakdown.”
“No need to spend time checking up on individual drivers
You are able to lock down your fuel cards to certain purchase options. This could be diesel only, fuel only or fuel and specific vehicle related goods like oil. These purchase restrictions give you greater control over what your drivers buy and help keep your costs down. It also gives you the peace of mind that you staff aren’t hiding things like their lunch or chocolate bars in their fuel expense claims.”
“Manage your account in half the time
FSB Fuel Card will enable you to make changes to your card information, order and cancel cards, obtain reports, download and print your invoices all at the few clicks of a button.”
“Save time for your drivers while making your fleet more efficient
Using a FSB Fuel Card with the largest fuelling network in the UK vastly limits deviation off route adds convenience and saves your drivers time and millage.”
“Time is something every business could do with having more of! Most of us are focused on the everyday running of our business but it goes without saying that it is essential to continue to attract new customers and to maintain the loyalty of existing customers through good communication."
"None of this is easy and can often be expensive, however there is a solution worth considering and that’s email marketing. This tried and tested channel has made huge strides in recent years and is now considered one of the key ways to market to new prospects and to communicate with current customers - it’s accessible, flexible and best of all, cost effective. No matter what size your business is, you can benefit from email marketing.”
“FSB Business Leads in association with Market Location provides access to a range of options from fully managed email campaigns with real time stats and offline data for follow up activity, to email data lists for a business to use for themselves.”
“There are many benefits to using email marketing – but the highlights are:
