Industry Information

Never underestimate the value of up-to-date information, as successful small businesses rely on accurate and timely market intelligence to stay ahead of the game. We are contacted by thousands of small businesses each year who just can’t find current information on their industry. Our aim is to continually supply you with the most relevant information across as many industries as possible.

How should I use an industry profile?

Industry profiles can be provided to your clients as a free service providing a value add to clients or as a charged service immediately increasing your fees. An industry profile provided to SME clients with their next tax return adds value to the service and deepens client relationships. Remember to diarise follow-up discussions with your client 6 months after providing an industry profile, as the client by this time may require additional information or services.
