The rules of business are constantly changing and business owners take it in their stride, but are they ready for the challenges that lie ahead?

While many SME owners have stress tested their plans and believe they are ‘Brexit ready’, uncertainty surrounding the UK government’s negotiations with the EU is making it hard for them to invest in building a strong business with confidence. Being aware of the variables affecting their day-to-day businesses is an important first step to managing change better.

We want to support our clients and other SME business owners during this time of uncertainty and this report aims to provide a unique resource, drawing on our research findings and insights from real business owners and their advisors.

Discover the changes happening all around in our annual SME Benchmarking Report, the ultimate guide for business owners by business owners.
