Small Business Advice Service (BAS)

Unlike a lot of small business accountants, we are enrolled in the ICAEW Business Advice Service (BAS). The BAS is playing a vital role in the business support landscape, offering free advice to SMEs in thousands of locations across the UK.

Small businesses are the engine of the UK economy. Yet their size means they often lack the financial expertise needed to get off the ground, raise finance, create jobs and grow.

Launched in autumn 2011, ICAEW's Business Advice Service (BAS) is designed to boost the prospects for a private sector-driven recovery by offering a helping hand to SMEs and start-ups across the country.

How it works?

The ICAEW Business Advice Service offers businesses a free advice session with us (Book your session).

"SME growth is crucial to the UK's economic success. In tough economic conditions, small businesses need the right advice and support to succeed.It's not just government's responsibility to help businesses to survive and thrive. As a profession that acts in the public interest, ICAEW Chartered Accountants recognise their responsibility to offer crucial guidance."

- Michael Izza, ICAEW Chief Executive
