Now in its 14th year, Small Business Advice Week returns in September and promises to help SMEs maximise growth and productivity.
Taking place from 4 to 10 September, Small Business Advice Week (SBAW) is aimed at the UK's 4.5 million small business owners. The theme for this year's event is "growth and productivity" and advice will be tailored to businesses navigating the economic uncertainty of Brexit.
This year's key partners include the Institute of Chartered Accountants for England and Wales (ICAEW), EDF Energy, RateSetter, XLN, D-Link, 123 Reg, Kashflow, 9Spokes and Barracuda. Over the week, leading experts will be offering advice on a number of key topics, including accounting, online marketing and data security.
The organisers said Small Business Advice Week is "here to help the UK's 4.5 million SMEs with a record number of partners on board to provide insight and guidance for the times ahead".
Philippa Kelly, manager of financial services at ICAEW, said: "This year we have partnered with Small Business Advice Week to provide support and assurance to SMEs across the UK. We will be providing insight and advice into all things accountancy, showing you don't need a team of in-house accountants to maximise the financial efficiency of your business."
Before the week-long event begins, Small Business Advice Week is hosting a discussion seminar at the ICAEW Headquarters in London on Thursday 31 August from 8:30am until 11am. Panellists will include: Clive Lewis, ICAEW's head of enterprise, Emma Reeve, senior manager at EDF Energy, Sion Lewis, Kashflow's cso and Paul Marston, Ratesetter's managing director of commercial finance.
