At the IFA, we put small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) first, recognising their role as vital wealth creators, as employers to more than half of the UK’s private sector workforce and as the power behind vibrant urban and rural communities.
We hold the interests of small and medium-sized practices (SMPs) in the accounting profession in equal regard. We are proud of our unique relationship with our members, who predominantly come from a SME/SMP background.
As a professional accountancy body, we aim to provide the very best support and guidance to our members who operate within this arena, frequently tailoring policies and recommendations to meet the unique challenges and trading relationships associated with smaller business.
Our aim is to continuously meet the needs of SMEs within the UK and throughout the international market. We offer a range of services and benefits that have been specifically considered as part our focus on supporting our members within the SME/SMP sector.
