The UK’s small businesses make up 99.3 per cent of all private sector businesses. They contribute a staggering amount to the UK’s local and national economies, as well as being a major source of employment; more than 16 million people are employed by smaller firms. Small businesses help make our town, cities and rural spaces more vibrant, rich and connected places in which to live, work, study and visit.
