Introduction

Thanks for being willing to take part in this survey. This survey is all about the external support services you buy for your company. Services such as accountancy, legal advice, consultants, as well as more practical services such as debt collection and training. 

This survey should be completed by someone who has responsibility for buying one or more external support service for your company. Your responses will be used to develop an exciting new business service, which combines several back office support services into one unique new service.

As a token of our appreciation, a donation of £1 for each completed response will be shared equally between four charities: British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research, The Poppy Appeal and Mind, the Mental Health Charity.

This research is being carried out on behalf of Basic Office Support Services (BOSS). Please rest assured that all your responses will be treated confidentially. No identifying information will be shared with BOSS and you will not be contacted as a result of participating in this survey.

First of all we'd like to know a bit about your business.

* 2. How many employees does your business have?

* 3. And what is your annual turnover?
