Small Business Overview - MBD report - November 2018
Author: Dawn Southgate
Overview of the report
"Over 99% of companies in the UK are small businesses. There are more than 5.7 million and they account for 34.5% of the overall economy, at £1,428.4 billion. They also account for 39% of all employment in the UK. In the last five years, their overall turnover growth has outperformed large corporates - at 19.4% compared with 14%, and their combined turnover is more than double medium-sized enterprises. However, they form a notoriously difficult sector for B2B marketers to target because of their disparity.”
