Abingdon-on-Thames has a thriving and close-knit business community. A range of networking organisations and business groups exists to encourage local links and facilitate a strong local commitment to spending money with local suppliers when possible. Several of our larger corporate businesses are contributors of time, expertise and funding contributions to community projects and events. In addition, councils and business leaders maintain important dialogues which have resulted in business-friendly initiatives becoming part of local policy, such as two hours free parking in town car parks, a shopfront grant scheme and five years of public sector financial support for the Choose Abingdon Partnership.

If you run a business in the area, plan to start a business in the area or would like to relocate your business to the area, there are several sources of support and information.

Economic Development Team, Vale of White Horse District Council. This team at Milton Park can assist with good marketing locations and obtaining suitable premises.

Each town and visitor information centre is linked into the tourism site
