Trading standards business advice

We offer free, impartial business support and advice to help new and existing businesses in Westminster flourish. We can only give advice to businesses in Westminster.

Businesses not in Westminster should contact their own council's trading standards team or Citizens Advice on 03454 040506. Your council or Citizens Advice might make referrals to us if they feel we need to be made aware of the facts of a case.

If you are in the non-retail sector or need further business advice, you are welcome to contact us.
