Our £10,000 Business Boost winner

Covid-19 has had a significant impact on the self-employed, with almost half expecting to lose up to £10,000.

But small businesses are the beating heart of our communities and economy, and we need them to bounce back.

That’s why we launched our Business Boost, giving away £10,000 to help one self-employed person revive their business.

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
