Professionalism to Survive
The key to success is to ensure you have the necessary resources and support to maintain a robust organisation. Your paperwork and procedures must be 100% correct otherwise you run the risk of being investigated even though you have done nothing wrong. This is why the FTI has produced for its members a Best Practice Guide. If you are a paid up member and you have not received your guide please contact us.

About the Federation
The Federation of Technological Industries (FTI), represents traders of mobile phones and computer chips.

The FTI is the main voice for the Industry. We aim to develop the Federation's offering to the Industry issues, such as providing legal advice, VAT advice, vetting, best practice and many other services.

A key challenge at present is to communicate with the UK banks to disuade them from closing traders accounts and for them to be more co-operative with the industry. If you have experienced any problems or issues with your bank please contact us with details.

Membership and Funding
There are many organisations in our industry that as yet have not joined us. We have proved that we are a force within the industry but we still need further new members to strengthen our finances so that we can provide an improved and effective service to the industry.

Membership of the FTI is only £3,000 + VAT, a small cost compared with the benefits we provide.
