Better Business for All



Better Business for All is a local partnership between businesses and regulators aimed at removing the regulatory barriers to growth and therefore raising the economic competitiveness of Leicester and Leicestershire.

Compliance with regulations can help your business provide a high and competitive standard of product that customers trust, help guard your business against liability, and highlight any inefficient use of resources. A good understanding of regulation can add value to your business.

Better Business for All provides your business with a simple, single point of access to free advice on business regulations from those best placed to support you, the regulators themselves. They can provide answers to queries relating to food safety, health & safety, pollution, waste, licensing, taxation, trading standards and fire safety. You can access this advice by ringing 0871 384 3185 or via
