Our work in the local business community
We have been actively involved with the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) since 2001 to champion the voice of local businesses. The FSB gives the opportunity for local business people to have a platform and a voice with Parliament, local and regional Councils, and Local Enterprise Partnerships. Our practice owner, John Mayer, holds the position of Area Lead of Somerset & North Somerset area with the FSB. John believes passionately that small businesses need a voice and gives up his time voluntarily on behalf of small businesses to ensure that this is so.
John has chaired meetings of FSB members and MP’s at Parliament, has been involved with meetings with the Treasury, particularly in regard to Making Tax Digital and the controversial IR35 legislation, and has regular meetings with local Members of Parliament in the Wiltshire, Somerset, North Somerset, Sedgemoor and Taunton areas.
John has also been actively involved with Education establishments and in particular colleges, mostly surrounding apprenticeships, albeit not entirely so! John is on the panel of Skills up Somerset, and through this is an employer ambassador for SWAAN, South West Apprentice Ambassador Network.
John is involved with a ‘Zero Carbon’ development in Bridgwater Somerset. Gravity is an internationally recognised initiative, developing a zero-carbon business park just off of the M5 at Junction 23 in Bridgwater. This is a six hundred and sixty three acre area on an ex-Royal Ordnance site. Its purpose is to create a high technology, ecological site with direct rail links for passengers and freight to Bristol Central and Bristol Docks.
John recently represented the Federation of Small Businesses in relation to the appeal Bristol Airport raised in regards to the expansion of the airport.
John has without any doubt negotiated successfully on behalf of businesses on numerous occasions over the many years of his involvement with the FSB, deriving benefits and opportunities for small businesses, and creating changes in legislation. Also creating paths for small business create opportunities with local and regional developments.
