About SO Business

SO Business is a one-stop shop for business advice and information for all businesses – large and small – in the South Oxfordshire district.  South Oxfordshire District Council’s ambition is to “create the right conditions for economic growth” and to “support business growth in appropriate locations across the district”.

If you are thinking about basing your business in South Oxfordshire you will enjoy world class business facilities and support, excellent communication and transport links, skilled staff and high quality of life in an exceptionally beautiful natural environment.

South Oxfordshire is a great location for business because of its:

  • central location with good road, rail and air links
  • world class businesses in a diverse range of sectors
  • thriving economy
  • highly skilled workforce
  • exceptional range of business sites and premises
  • comprehensive business support network
  • internationally renowned research facilities.

South Oxfordshire is also home to two HM Government Enterprise Zones which are designated areas across England that provide tax breaks and Government support. They are great places to do business especially for both new and expanding firms.

In 2017 the council conducted a survey of small and medium sized businesses which asked about their needs and growth aspirations and how the council can support them. The resulting SME Business and Innovation Strategy report was published in March 2017.

Using this information has allowed SO Business to publish a Business and Innovation Strategy Action Plan, which outlines our work going forward until 2020.

If you are already located in South Oxfordshire or thinking of locating to the area, SO Business would love to hear from you. Get in touch with us today and play a key part in South Oxfordshire’s future business success.
