Is I4B the Outstanding Small Business of the Year?

Innovation 4 Business is thrilled to announce that it has been shortlisted as the Outstanding Small Business of the Year at the forthcoming Asian Business Chamber of Commerce Awards.

The Asian Business Chamber of Commerce is the Chamber that aims to represent the Asian business community across Greater Birmingham. Formed in 1987, the ABCC has a long history in supporting the vast variety of diverse, Asian businesses that operate in the West Midlands. The largest Chamber of its kind, the ABCC acts as a gateway for any organisations looking to target the West Midlands Asian business community.

Phil Moore, Managing Director of I4B, said of the announcement:

“I’m absolutely delighted that Innovation 4 Business has been shortlisted for this award.

We are passionate about developing a diverse and inclusive team. We work hard and we play hard too. I am fiercely proud of our team and am passionate about their self-development and progression.  

We have a client base that spans communities and we actively seek out business from Asian leaders/companies. We also continue to recruit from a wide range of areas to maximise engagement from Asian communities.

Our team has had an especially busy time of late, seeing new faces join, and also a new Capital Allowances team established. We have seen some of our biggest client savings achieved and have some ecstatic and now loyal clients as a result. I can only hope that the next 12 months continue on the same course and at a good pace”.

I4B has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2018 and has ambitious and sustainable plans for its short and long-term future. The business has seen its income multiply five-fold since it was established, and now has a team of 14.

In March 2021, I4B officially became part of the ARMCO portfolio, giving us and our clients another string to our bow with access to a huge range of property and financial services (see This is another demonstration of how, whilst at our core I4B is a property tax specialist, we can provide other complementary services, whether that be financing, bridging, private equity advice, invoice financing, insurance etc all under one roof. This means by working closely with the other companies in the ARMCO Portfolio that the transition for a client requiring these additional services is seamless and the services are easily accessible and provided in an efficient and timely manner.
