Buy With Confidence is an independent trader approval scheme. Businesses who are signed up to the scheme are vetted by Trading Standards and then added to a national database so customers can find them and know they are open, honest, operate within trading law, and have good customer service.

Membership of the Buy With Confidence scheme helps your business stand out from the crowd, and you’ll be able to use the Buy With Confidence logo so your customers know your business can be trusted.

The scheme is open to businesses in most sectors, not just home improvements and the motor trade.

By joining the scheme you’ll get advice on any changes in law that will affect your business, saving you money on legal fees as solicitors and others may charge hundreds of pounds for advice on legal compliance.
