It is intended that this would be achieved through the wider and more immediate market access that Business Links have developed since their inception and through the use of Business Link based on-line databases that feature details of individual accountants specialisms, industry backgrounds, fee rates and web site addresses allowing individual businesses to review on-line the skills available, to help improve the performance of their operations.A pilot project, with a developed database, has been running in Hampshire since May with all four bodies co-operating at local level to implement and ensure its success. It is intended to extend this approach to the remaining eight Business Link regions of the country following the Business Link National Conference at the NEC this week. CIMA will be giving its support on a regional basis to help ensure the Initiative's national success. The reciprocal nature of the BLAP Initiative is such that where Accountants recognise the need for specific non financial input Business Link may well be asked to assist. As a result of the joint consultation four booklets have been prepared setting out the relationship between Business Links and the Profession:I) A Voluntary Code of PracticeII) Business Link working with thee Accountancy ProfessionIII) Accountants and Business Link working together to benefit Businessand IV) A Good Practice Guide for closer co-operationThese booklets are avaliable on request from the Business Link Network Company in Newbury and the three Accountancy Bodies.
