The FSB has announced proposals to become more active on social media.
The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has revealed a new website designed to make it easier for small businesses to access the support it can offer.

The industry body also announced proposals to become more active on social media and unveiled plans to digitise its library of small business advice.

FSB director David Miles said of the changes: UK smaller businesses are world leaders in their use of technology and customer care. As the voice of small business we need to reflect these fantastic businesses and I think the new brand demonstrates this.

Miles explained that the FSB wants more of the UK’s small businesses which numbered more than five million at the start of 2015 to benefit from the advice it has to offer. It is already the largest business membership organisation in the UK, with 200, 000 members across the country.

He added: Today’s businesses need our support and services more than ever. Smaller businesses face numerous challenges related to a range of upcoming policy changes including the new National Living Wage, pensions auto-enrolment deadlines, and changes to the way dividends are taxed.
