ICAEW Business Advice Service


This scheme was established by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales in 2012 and plays a vital role in the business support landscape, offering a free advice session to SMEs in over 3,000 locations across England, Wales and Scotland.

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. ICAEW’s Business Advice Scheme is intended to boost the prospects for a private sector-driven recovery by offering a helping hand to SMEs across the country.

The Business Advice Service will offer businesses advice on how to overcome challenges facing SMEs across the country:

  • How to grow a business
  • Securing loans, capital and finance
  • Keeping staff and creating new jobs
  • Meeting tax and regulatory requirements
  • Export planning
  • Planning for long term sustainable growth
  • Debt management
  • Legal issues
