What is Better Business for All?
Better Business for All (BBfA) is a business-focused project currently being run by Bath & North East Somerset Council.
The Council is committed to supporting businesses by providing advice and guidance that helps them understand and meet their legal responsibilities.
About Better Business for All
Better Business for All is about making the regulation of business better for everyone involved.
Regulations can be a minefield and costly to implement. Better Business for All aims to show how working with your local regulators can save you time and money, improve your competitiveness and help you grow your business.
It is also about encouraging more businesses in Bath & North East Somerset to seek advice from local regulators by highlighting the benefits of regulation to business, without fear of enforcement activity.
And it's about ensuring that regulatory staff better understand how businesses operate and the pressures they face.
Over time our aim is to work in partnership with local business groups and support organisations such as the Chamber of Commerce and the Federation of Small Businesses. We are already working with our regulatory neighbours and the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership to ensure consistency of approach across our region.
