Small and medium-sized enterprises are a significant contributor to the wider UK economy and within the City, driving growth and employment. In fact, SMEs make up over 98% of all businesses within the Square Mile. The City of London Corporation is committed to encouraging and supporting enterprise and small business growth within the Square Mile itself and within neighbouring boroughs.

We offer a wide range of support and advice for smaller businesses, from advice on accessing finance and helping firms to find suitable premises, to support for establishing responsible business practices, sustainable and local procurement, and contingency planning processes.

You will find information about some of our services, programmes and resources within this section and via the links on the right.
