The Forum of Private Business has conducted many past research papers and we do contribute to consultations with government bodies.  If you want to see some of our past research papers they can be found to download for free below.

The Forum has polled members in the past and we continue to do so on a number issues to make sure we accurately represent the views and concerns of small businesses trading in the UK today.
