Thank you for checking out our membership joining page.
Looking at the different options you’re probably thinking which membership is for you? If you need help, please feel free to contact us, but we’ll try to make it clearer below.
At the BSO we offer 2 main types of membership, Standard and Premium, which have been designed specifically for the small business owner (corporate membership is available, but is only available by speaking to us).
Full details of both Premium and Standard memberships can be found on the “Pricing” page - However, the only real difference is Premium Membership includes the Legal Protection Scheme, Standard doesn’t.
NOTE - If you’re unsure which is for you, remember, there is nothing stopping you from upgrading your membership partway through the year. We have many members who have a legal scheme elsewhere (perhaps with another business organisation) and then upgrade when that membership runs out.
Like many organisations, we rate your membership on how many staff you have in the company. To calculate, count how many people you have PAYE in your company less yourself - we do not count freelancers or subcontractors in this calculation.
To join simply click on the box that applies to which membership type you want and how many staff you have. The rest should take you less than a minute to complete, and we’ll arrange to have a proper chat after joining.
Or - contact us and we can explain how membership can work for you either face to face (which we prefer), or over the phone - its entirely your choice.
