    Self-employed discounts 13th Jan 19 at 5:47 PM
    In addition to Booker / Makro / Costco, are there any other companies that offer discounts for the self employed business owner?

    Booker, Makro and Costco are Cash and Carry stores that may or may not be cheaper than the supermarkets once VAT is added and taking into account some supermarket deals.

    I was not aware that they offered discounts for the Self Employed? They dont in my area.

    Thanks Sarah, I really meant are there any stores that offer discounts, as opposed to any 'other' stores. My bad! I since found that Rymans do an online discount for businesses if you register.

    You can get a trade card at B&Q
    if you lend someone 20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    I find Stax good for bulk buying and you can only register if you are a business or organisation although they are not too strict on these definitions.
    It might depend on the type of business.
    You can then check for wholesalers who supply these types of businesses although as Sarah says sometimes a supermarket is just as cost effective.
