The latest Small Business Index shows an increasing number of firms want to create jobs in the next three months. This marks the third consecutive quarter of job creation and provides yet more signs that confidence is returning and that momentum behind economic growth is being maintained.
Scottish small businesses were planning to increase their staff numbers and boost capital investment in 2014, the last small business confidence index of 2013 showed.Our research showed that despite business confidence taking a seasonal dip it remained much higher than it was in the same quarter of the previous three years.
The UK's small firms are showing increasing optimism for 2014 as businesses remain positive about the economic outlook. Latest research suggests small firms want to grow their business and find access to finance a little easier, according to the Quarter 4.
Scottish small businesses were at their most confident in three years, the third confidence index of 2013 showed. After rising for four successive quarters, Scottish small business confidence was at its highest since the start of 2010 - however the Scottish figure continued to lag behind the UK average.
Following the optimism in the previous two quarters of 2013, confidence rose to the highest level seen since the Small Business Index began in 2010. Confidence stood at +33.5, up from 15.9 reported in Q2. Confidence rose in most sectors and regions.
Confidence among small businesses rose to its highest level in three years according to the second quarter, rising from 6.3 in Q1 to 15.9 in Q2. Confidence rose across most sectors and in all regions of the UK. The FSB wants to see the Chancellor use the spending review later this month to build on this optimism.
The report showed a welcome increase in confidence, moving from a negative reading of -5.6 in Q4 2012 to +6.3 in the first quarter of 2013. However, this optimism was tempered with caution as fewer businesses expect to grow this year – down from 56 per cent in Q1 2012 to 54 per cent in 2013.
