What is a SME

SME stands for small or medium sized enterprise.  Under the New SME definition from the European Commission (2.2.1) an establishment should have:

Turnover less £25 million

Gross Assets less the £12.5 million

Employ less than 250 (FTE) employees and that does not include apprentices.

The business can not be owned by a non-SME.

Who is it for?

It is aimed specifically at all tourism businesses based in Staffordshire with fewer than 250 employees (SME) but large businesses can take advantage of our specialists.

How much does it cost?

There is no charge for participating SME businesses for the first 12 hours of assistance, thanks to funding from Destination Staffordshire and the European Regional Development Fund 


If you are not eligible for the assistance, however you may be able to still access the support by paying the market rates for any support type outlined above.
