Free advice is being offered to more than 2,000 business owners as part of a new scheme to bring ‘Honiton Together’.

The chamber of commerce and the East Devon branch of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) have invited representatives from local banks, law firms and other organisations to give advice on a variety of issues from setting up a business to corporation tax.

The Honiton Together event is being held at the Beehive Centre, Honiton, on Thursday, September 24, from 3pm to 8pm.

Chamber of commerce chairman Colin Wright said: “People who run small and medium-sized enterprises often have business-related issues, but don’t really know where to turn for advice.

“With this event, lots of useful contacts will all be available in one place, making finding the right support much easier.”

Co-organiser, FSB chairman Greg Page-Turner said: “Although this is primarily an event for business support, it also presents an excellent opportunity to network with other businesses.

“We hope that by finding out what others in our area are achieving, local businesses will be inspired on to even greater success.”

Organisers are inviting more exhibitors to take part in the event.
