Your Business Toolkit is online and live, so if you need assistance or advice, the AHBC can access your files as you are working on them.  You can also share your files with your accountant, business partner and others.  Avoid multiple revision documents, now work from your master documents.

AHBC members can freely create their online folder of Business Tools any time and for each of their businesses.  Non members can also create an online folder of Business Tools for only $75.   An email will be sent to you soon after creating your folder of online Business Tools along with payment details for non members.
