The County Council service will waive fees for its business advice for the next six months.

The service offers a range of services which will be available free of charge to any North Yorkshire-based business.

A specialist team of officers can provide advice on all aspects of trading standards law, including helping businesses to diversify into different product areas or to move their business online or to a takeaway service.
