This Saturday December 6th is Small Business Saturday, and our Manchester accountants hope all our small business clients are prepared to reap the rewards of this annual event.
You don’t have to be a retailer to join in, although much of the media coverage tends to focus on independent gift shops and free car parking in town centres and adjacent to high streets.
But whatever industry you’re involved in, Small Business Saturday is a great opportunity to put across your brand identity, and particularly to celebrate your small size, rather than trying to market yourself as a bigger brand than you actually are.
Councillor Sue Murphy, deputy leader of Manchester City Council, explains the importance of the event, and of the businesses involved.
“Small Business Saturday shines a light on the small businesses all over Manchester who work hard year-round to provide unique products and services,” she said.
“Small businesses can help to give an area a real sense of identity, so I’d encourage people to visit their local district centre and take part in the special events that are taking place on Small Business Saturday.”
Of course, it is also an opportunity to drum up some extra business, so make the most of it – and if your revenues rise by more than expected, our Manchester accountants will be available in the following weeks to help you work out how that may affect your tax and other such issues.
