ACCA and small business
If you are a small business or interested in starting up a small business then ACCA has put together some handy tips and factsheets which you will find useful. Go to the small business section of the website.
One consistently expressed need from ACCA members is for a simple straightforward guide to risk management. In response to this need, one of ACCA's senior members, Mr. Tony Morton, has prepared a risk register which is aimed at smaller businesses which have reached the stage in their life cycle where the formality of a risk register has become a necessity.

Credit Management Matters
Cashflow is critical to business survival but all too often the day to day challenge of running a business, particularly a smaller business, can mean losing sight of some of the skills for successful cashflow management. This series of guides, developed in partnership with the Institute of Credit Management, is part of a series of initiatives providing practical support to help businesses help themselves through these difficult times. They are designed to provide straightforward and speedy advice with simple checklists and top tips. To view the series please click here.
The Corporate Sector Network Panel (CSNP) organise 6 events on behalf of its members per year. The majority are held in London, with the remainder across the country. ACCA audio record these events where possible and place on the podcast section of the website. Please visit the podcast page to view all lectures recorded.
