THE credit crunch is putting pressure on all businesses, so if you're running a successful business, you will know how crucial it is to keep up to date with developments that make life easier.

But when there aren't enough hours in the day, where do you find the time to speak to the organisations that can help you?

Thanks to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), getting to grips with all your business information requirements could be easier than you think.

HMRC and its partner organisations will be offering free help and advice at Sopwell House Hotel, St Albans next month.

The Business Advice Open Day (BAOD) events help and advise small and medium sized businesses on a huge range of topics including age legislation, starting up a business, and health and safety law. And because everyone's needs are different, HMRC offers information in two ways - by offering seminars on specialist topics, and by holding an exhibition of stands manned by a wide range of organisations.

The event is free, and pre-event registration is only necessary if you want to attend one of the free seminars running on the day.
