Trading Standards bespoke business advice

We enforce many consumer laws to encourage fair, safe and honest trading. If you run a business we can provide you with advice and guidance to ensure you comply with Trading Standards laws.

There are different levels of support we can offer depending on the nature of your business.

Bespoke business advice

We can tailor advice to the needs of your business across the spectrum of Trading Standards legislation. Fees are charged on a cost recovery basis and a lower subsidised rate is available for non-VAT registered businesses.

However, many start up businesses and some small businesses may be eligible for some free advice to support your business.
