Finding a business adviser

Finding the right business adviser involves researching the marketplace and then choosing an adviser that suits your specific needs. The following sources will help you compile a shortlist of people and organisations.

Business and social networks

Start by talking with your family, friends, business networks and industry associations. Find out about their experiences with business advisers and see if you can get some good recommendations. If someone you trust is happy with their adviser, consider including them on your shortlist.

Professional associations

Many professional associations have databases of their members, which you can use to start finding potential business advisers in your area:

Local councils

Your local council may offer a business adviser service to help to start, run and grow your business with targeted support for your local area.
