THE North East Cheshire Business Awards 2016 are now open for entries, with 11 categories to choose from.

Sponsoring the Excellence in Customer Service category is SAS Daniels LLP. Justine Clowes, equity partner and head of the Macclesfield office, said: "We are sponsoring the Excellence in Customer Service Award as this is something we pride ourselves on, and, as many of our clients are SME business owners we understand just how much of an impact customer service can have. If you get it wrong your business suffers, get it right and you build customer loyalty that will bring rewards in the future.

"We chose to sponsor an award this year having entered the business awards ourselves last year. We won our category and were extremely proud of what we achieved. We know first-hand what a positive impact winning can have and we wanted to encourage other businesses to get involved and enter.

"North east Cheshire is a fantastic place to do business as is evidenced by the number of exceptional entries to the awards this year."
