The Arch Company, who manages 5,200 arches and former railway properties, has announced that up to 100 of the small businesses based in its spaces can now claim one year’s supported membership of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), the UK’s voice for small businesses, as part of a new partnership. This includes a discount provided by FSB and a £100 per business contribution from The Arch Company.
FSB membership unlocks market-leading business services and tools designed to help small businesses to thrive, including financial expertise and support chasing late payments. Through this new partnership, eligible customers who have under five employees will pay just £96 for their first year of membership, less than half the normal starting price.
The Arch Company’s CEO, Craig McWilliam, said: “As one of the largest providers of space to small businesses, this partnership with FSB is a natural fit for us. The resources provided by FSB will help our customers to comply with relevant statutory obligations and encourage their businesses to grow and succeed.”
FSB’s National Chair, Martin McTague, said:” “Small business owners are working harder than ever to run and grow their businesses against the backdrop of a cost crisis. We’re extremely pleased to partner with The Arch Company to bring more of their customers into FSB membership, and all of the business support services which come with that.”
FSB members benefit from legal and tax insurance protection, 24/7 legal support, financial expertise and exclusive discounts. Members can also access advice on health & safety, insurance, tax, employment protection and debt recovery.
The offer is available on a first come first served basis to up to 100 eligible customers who are not already members of FSB or have not been FSB members in the previous two years. Further information and details on how to apply can be found on The Arch Company website.
