Most businesses struggle to find reliable advice and back up. The Forum of Private Business have nearly 40 years of experience in providing solutions and support to thousands of existing members in a diversity of businesses throughout the UK. As a not for profit business organisation they are widely recognised as the Experts, who put any profit made back into providing better services and support for their members.

With legislation and regulation constantly changing, becoming more complex and any breach penalty becoming more expensive, it is vital that businesses are aware of their obligations. The amount of time spent on ensuring that the business is always compliant erodes the amount of time that you have to spend on building your business. This is why the Forum’s support is so important.
Because the Forum has such huge buying power they have been able to negotiate many real money saving schemes on every day business essentials where all negotiated discounts are enjoyed by members……here’s an example….. …….A member in West Sussex is now saving nearly £6000 per annum on diesel fuel for his 12 vehicles thanks to his membership of the Forum….and, he thought he already had a good deal with his previous fuel card provider! Plus, they have schemes for reducing Energy costs – Insurance – Card Payment processing fees – Pensions and Workplace Pensions – Business Finance & much more.
