Small businesses represent as much as 99% of UK companies, according to government figures. They employ about half of the workforce and often contribute a vital service to local communities. The small business sector has been facing significant challenges - higher inflation, more expensive business loans and uncertain markets. In this podcast, we look at both the challenges and the opportunities for small businesses.
The experts on the panel are:
Charlotte Thomason, Head of Policy and Government Relations at Enterprise Nation, an organisation which helps advise small businesses on how to set-up and grow. Andy Chamberlain, Director of Policy at IPSE - The Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed. Adnan Sajjad, an accountant specialising in helping small businesses.
