Get in touch!
The advice and information contained here is wide ranging – but because it’s updated every day you should find it up-to-date and relevant.
However, we are aware that not everyone wants to search a website for information; sometimes people in business prefer to talk to someone either on the phone or face-to-face.
So if you want to speak to one of our advisors on the telephone, simply call 01253 477 147 and we will point you in the right direction.
There’s no charge for any of these services – our aim is quite simply to try to help businesses in Blackpool to prosper.
We run EVENTS for new and small/medium businesses:
Business Start-up Drop-In Advice Sessions – Every Thursday, check for available dates
Practical Bookkeeping, Digital Accounting and Tax for New Businesses – January 22nd 2 – 4pm
