Whilst large businesses always grab the headlines, the fact is it is small companies that have always been the UK’s economic backbone.

According to the latest Federation of Small Business figures, small enterprises account for 99.3% of all private sector businesses, with total employment within small to medium sized enterprises at 16.1 million, or 60% of the UK workforce.

As a firm we have grown rapidly in recent years, but we are extremely proud to retain our local roots in smaller communities throughout Devon and Somerset.

Our ambition is to create the best & leading regional practice in the South West with a firm focus on those many small businesses that are the true economic drivers for the regional economy.

That’s why we have decided to sponsor the Small Business of the Year category at the Western Morning News’s Annual Business Awards.

The Awards are an excellent opportunity to showcase and celebrate the achievements of businesses large and small from across the region, and have over the years established themselves as one of the most prestigious events in the South West calendar. 

We’re very proud to be supporting this event, together with fellow sponsors Browne Jacobson, Cornwall Colleges Business, Devon Colleges Group, Foot Anstey, Vodafone, Optimus and St Austell Brewery.
